Curious which of Lea Michele (Rachel)’s “favorite movies” she was teasing in yesterday’s tweet? Turns out the cast is hard at work on an episode that will pay homage to one of cinema’s most classic of musicals: Grease!

E! Online has the photographic evidence of the (male) cast in full-on T-Birds mode on the bleachers at Venice High School, the proud home of the 1978 film. Their report has Blaine (Darren Criss) as Danny Zuko — the role made famous by John Travolta — and Sam (Chord Overstreet) as Kenickie... but we’re inclined to go with the opposite based on this pic.

PLUS, HELLO Samcedes tie-in!

Since this scene takes place whilst the cast is belting out alternating female and male love stories in “Summer Lovin’,” and Sam and Mercedes (Amber Riley) had some summer lovin’ of their own, it seems a perfect moment for Sam to take the spotlight and serenade his current crush.

Either way, we’re suuuper excited for this ep and really hope this isn’t the only number they’ll borrow from the film. (Might we put in a request now for “Greased Lightning”?)

With the addition of this to the Michael Jackson-themed ep set to air January 24, we must say... the new year is looking very good already!
