A new love interest and a new bad boy are coming to “Glee” this fall.
Fox announced Monday that the Ryan Murphy dramedy has added two new cast members for Season 4 — starting with a potential new heartbreaker for … Rachel (Lea Michele). Ms. Berry will be a student of the dramatic arts in more ways than one when she lands in New York City and catches the eye of Dean Geyer, who will play Brody Weston, a handsome upperclassman who shows an interest in the new freshman on campus.
And move aside, Puckerman! You’re not the only bad boy in the halls of McKinley High … or in the Puckerman family, for that matter. Relative newcomer Jacob Artist has been cast as Puck’s (Mark Salling) younger half-brother Jake, who tries out for New Directions — but hits a sour note with the glee club thanks to his bad attitude.
“Glee” returns on its new night, Thursday, Sept. 13 at 9/8c on Fox.
As previously announced, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson have signed on to guest star in “Glee’s” adventures in New York storyline for Season 4, with SJP playing a Vogue.com editor and Hudson playing Cassandra July, Rachel’s dance teacher at NYADA.
