Brittana

Brittanaファンが増えた。
Brittanaは、GLEEに出てくるBrittanyとSantanaの二人組み。
GLEEの基本は、GLEE CLUBが正義、アメフトやチアは悪と言う構成。
一般的に、悪い意味でマイナーな部とメジャーな部の問題点を引き合いに
コメディが展開する。

チアだから、見た目がきれいで、運動神経も良いが、思慮が足りないと
言う性格付けをディレクタが決め、
Brittanyは、小学生レベルの知識、
Santanaは恋人以外に興味がない、
二人は親友でいつも一緒としたようだ。
GLEE Clubに入っても少しの間は、高飛車で意地悪。

実際のドラマでは、Brittanaは、見た目は良くて、ダンスはうまいが、
セリフがほとんどない。個性的な人を誇張した感じだ。
でも、Brittanyの小学生レベルのセリフが面白い。
「イルカは、ゲイのサメ」、
「猫が日記を読んでいる」、
「バラードはオスガモ」等
SantanaのグチにBrittanyがボケ、さらにSantanaがツッコムと言う
掛け合いが基本。報道では、秘密兵器と言われる。

GLEEは、食物をばらまいて、粗末に扱ったり、人種差別を区別と称したり、
市販薬剤によるドラッグ代用を勧めたり、障害者なりすまし詐欺、知的
障害者への教育と称した拷問等、問題点を数えれば切りがない。
日本の地上波で放送したら、クレームばかりだろう。
米国では代償があれば問題としないようだ。

私服を着たGLEE CLUBの役者は、ドラマとは違った華やかさがある。
特に美女と評価が高いDianna Agronは、チアのユニフォームよりも私服が
とても華やかだ。

ドラマでの気付き点
・オーディションや発表会での自然な合唱で、ブロードウェア特有の突然、
 歌いだすことは少ない。
・GLEE CLUBには、予算がないと言いながら、歌手とは別に、専属のピアノ、
 ドラム、管弦楽器の伴奏者がいる。
・楽曲分析、暗譜、振付やダンスの練習は無く、音合わせや通し稽古すらない。
 選曲したら、いきなり歌って、踊れる。
 感情表現は少なく、ショービズの色合いが濃い。
・チアダンスは、器械体操に近いのに、なぜかジャズ、ヒップポップ、
 社交ダンスまで踊れる。歌はコーラス担当。Quinnだけソロがある。
・スペイン語教師は、ヒップポップ、ブレイクダンスを踊るが、楽器を
 弾けない。
・アメフト部員なのに、ギターの弾き語りができる。クォータバックは
 ドラムスが叩ける。アメフトの練習を頑張れば連敗をしなかったはず。
・恋人の親友の子を妊娠した(させられた)のに、父親は恋人と言い張る
 母親に、記憶が無いにも関わらず、それに納得する恋人。さらに、
 遺伝的父親から、打ち明けられた別の友達が、母親は父親と認めなかった
 と言う。子供と親は、別々の関係らしい。
・Hairography(ヘアー作戦?)ダンスを批判しても、以前の発表会で実演
 して高評価。
・選曲は、米国のポップスが多く、Pee Wee KingやGeorge Gershwin等の
 クラシック(?)はまだない。

---TV: Heather Morris has become a reliable comic voice on 'Glee'

It's tough to steal the comedic spotlight when Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) rides roughshod over anyone in her path on "Glee."

"You two are the stupidest teens I've ever encountered," Sue tells a couple of students in an upcoming episode. "And that's saying something. I once taught a cheerleading seminar to a young Sarah Palin."

But a student character who began in the background has emerged as one of the show's most reliable comic voices.

Heather Morris stars as blond, pony-tailed, drop-dead dumb Brittany, a cheerleader most often seen with her best friend, Santana (Naya Rivera).

Brittany first made an impression early in the show's run when glee-club coach Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) asked for the definition of "ballad."

"It's a male duck," Brittany said with utmost seriousness.

On a fan forum, a viewer posted this comment: "I kinda like her being the Ralph Wiggum of 'Glee,' jumping in with random stupid things." Ralph is the dim son of police chief Wiggum on "The Simpsons," and like him, Brittany often makes ridiculous, dumb statements that turn out to be hilarious.

In upcoming episodes, she declares both a foible ("Sometimes I forget my middle name") and a suspicion ("I'm pretty sure my cat's been reading my diary"). She never means to be funny, which is exactly why she is.

A dancer who has worked with Beyonce, Morris was first brought in before the show's first season to teach cast members the "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" dance. From there she was cast as Brittany, one of the mean-girl cheerleaders.

"Literally, I was just a mean girl until there was one scene of me and Puck (Mark Salling) in the office with Sue where she was trying to turn us against the glee club," Morris said. "We were sitting there and there was no dialogue, and I hear this laughter and they cut and (executive producer) Ryan (Murphy) was directing and he says, 'Heather Morris, you look so stupid and confused, so from now on, your character is dumb.' "

That was fine by her.

"Forever before that moment, I wanted her to be like Karen from 'Mean Girls,' " she said, invoking a dumb blonde played by Amanda Seyfried ("Big Love") in that Tina Fey-scripted movie. "I was so excited. I get to play her on the show."

Morris said Murphy came up with the "male duck" line on the set and whispered it in her ear so that it was a surprise exclamation to her co-stars.

In an upcoming episode when a curly-haired student joins the glee club, Brittany asks curly-haired Schuester, "Is he your son?" That line wasn't scripted, either. Morris just tossed it out during a rehearsal.

"Brittany would have thought maybe that's why he's coming to join us," she said. "I just went with the moment."

In upcoming episodes, Morris said viewers will see Brittany make friends with other characters in addition to Santana, who it has been suggested is more than just a platonic friend.

"We play little hints here and there," she said. "I think (Murphy) just thinks it's funny."


---'Glee's' secret weapon---

It's pretty tough to get laughs when you co-star with Jane Lynch, but somehow "Glee" has managed to give another blonde enough brilliant one-liners to fill an open mic night. Dancer Heather Elizabeth Morris was brought on the show to provide back-up for Quinn in both the musical numbers and evil doing, but over the course of season one her Cheerio Brittany has emerged as one of the funniest second bananas on TV right now!

When Brittany first appeared, singing along with Quinn on "Say A Little Prayer," my friend lovingly dubbed her "The Beast." There was no rhyme or reason to it, he simply didn't care for the character. But with every ensuing episode Britt was given more and more to do while given less and less to think.

The result has been one of the most clueless characters that's ever figured out how to dress herself in the morning. Brittany finds recipes confusing, cheats off mentally handicapped classmates, thinks the square root of four is rainbows and doesn't know her right hand from her left.

But my favorite Britt-ism comes from last night's phenomenal episode. When asked what a ballad is, she replied ... well, wouldn't it be better to watch the scene go down? Of course it wood. Eep, looks like Brittany's rubbing off on me.
