“Glee” previously announced that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson were joining the show for multiple episodes when it returns for its fourth season. Then came word that “American Idol” Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez was also dropping by. Adding to the newbies category will most likely be a couple of contestants from “The Glee Project“. Even with all those additions, Ryan Murphy and company just announced two more actors being introduced.
Puck (Mark Salling) may have graduated McKinley High, but there’s a new Puckerman in town. Jacob Artist has been tapped to play Jake Puckerman- Puck’s half-brother. Like his big bro, he’ll try out for New Directions. But will his bad-boy ways derail his chances? Artist’s previous credits include a guest spot on “Melissa & Joey” and Lifetime TV movie, “Blue Lagoon: The Awakening“.
The second addition to the cast is Dean Geyer (right). This Aussie actor will play Brody Weston and might possibly become a love interest for Rachel Berry (Lea Michele). The character Brody is described as a hot upperclassman who takes an interest in the new girl at NYADA. Does this mean that Finchel is really over? Geyer’s previous credits include FOX’s short-lived “Terra Nova” and Australian soap “Neighbours“.
What do you think of the new additions? With all the new blood, what does this mean for all the returning alums? Sound off below. Be sure to catch all the action when “Glee” Season 4 premieres on Thursday, September 13 on FOX.
