Meet the “Glee” new class: The New Directions have an aspiring member and Rachel has an aspiring love interest in Jacob Artist and Dean Geyer, the newest cast members to sign on to the FOX hit for Season 4.
As co-creator Brad Falchuk told Zap2it at Comic-Con, the New Directions’ first priority in the fall is to replenish their ranks. Artist will play Puck’s (Mark Salling) younger half-brother Jake Puckerman. It sounds like he might’ve inherited his bro’s propensity for singing — and his bad attitude. He’ll try out for the New Directions, but will his attitude derail his audition?
Meanwhile, Geyer will guest star as NYADA student Brody Weston, a hot upperclassman who takes an interest in Lima’s shining star Rachel Berry (Lea Michele). What does this mean for Finn and Rachel?
Geyer is a 26-year-old Aussie who starred on “Neighbours” in his homeland, along with FOX’s “Terra Nova.” Artist has appeared in Lifetime’s “Blue Lagoon: The Awakening” and ABC Family’s sitcom “Melissa & Joey.”
“Glee” Season 4 premieres Thursday, September 13 at 9 p.m. on FOX.
