An Ode To Brittany, Our Favorite Gleek

Holy “Toxic” “Baby One More Time!” Tonight is the big Britney Spears episode of “Glee.” We are obviously excited for Britney’s appearance as dentist John Stamos’ receptionist—after all, BritBrit’s guest-starring roles are usually awesome. But we’re even more excited because our favorite “Glee” character, Brittany, will finally get her chance to shine. Heather Morris is absolutely hilarious as the emotionless Cheerio Brittany, delivering one-liners like “Did you know that dolphins are just gay sharks?” with a perfect monotone. Let’s look back at Brittany’s best moments from last season, mkay?

So who is Heather Morris? Apparently, “Glee” is her first acting gig. She’s actually a professional dancer who performed with Beyonce. She was brought on the “Glee” set to help teach the cast the “Single Ladies” dance. At the same time, the show was looking to cast a third Cheerio to be friends with Quinn and Santana. They decided to give Heather a shot. Meet her below. You’ll be pleased to know that in real life, she smiles when she talks.
