Do you miss Dalton Academy’s sharp blue blazers trimmed with red piping on Glee? If so, you’re in luck. Word on the street has it that a new Warbler is heading our way. Here’s the kicker… he’s STRAIGHT. Yup, for the first time in the show’s history, the lead singer of the Dalton Academy Warblers will have an affinity for fish rather than sausage ;) That said, the newbie will set his sights on Blaine (Darren Criss). But for what?
According to TVLine.com, Warbler’s new frontman will attempt to lure Blaine back to the hallowed halls of the private school so they can win at nationals. With Blaine newly single, after this week’s episode titled, “Break-up“, maybe a little straight boy seduction will do the trick. Cast in the role is Canadian actor, Nolan Gerard Funk. Get to know him below.
The 26-year-old actor has appeared on television and on Broadway. In 2009, he played Conrad Birdie in the 2009 Broadway revival of Bye Bye Birdie. His television credits include Smallville and Nickelodeon’s made for television musical, Spectacular!
Do you think the new Warbler can steal Blaine from New Directions? Do you think Nolan Gerard Funk will be a great addition to Glee? Sound off below.
