cheyenne jackson joining glee 'Glee': Cheyenne Jackson fills big shoes in Season 2

In a case of fairly obvious casting, Broadway star and recurring “30 Rock” guest Cheyenne Jackson just booked a gig on “Glee.” But what may surprise you is that it isn’t a exactly a new role. Spoilers ahead.

EW reports that Jackson will replace Idina Menzel‘s Shelby Corcoran as the coach of rival glee club Vocal Adrenaline.

After all, she disappeared at the end of Season 1 with plans to de-glee — and Puck and Quinn’s baby in hand.

Jackson’s got a full plate this coming season. In addition to the work he’ll pick up at “Glee,” he’s signed on to appear in Larry David’s New York-filmed Season 8 of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and, presumably, an open door at “30 Rock.”
