new normal george takei nicole richie 'New Normal' adds George Takei and Nicole Richie“The New Normal” is the new comedy on NBC from “Glee” and “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy. And since Murphy has just recent joined Twitter, he enjoys breaking news about his shows on the social media site.

Friday (Sept. 28) he broke some “New Normal” cast news when he wrote, “Proud to announce Nicole Richie and the legendary George Takei are joining The New Normal family.”

That’s all he divulged at this point, so we have no idea if he means joining permanently or if he means guest-starring roles or just cameos. But it’s rather exciting, particularly about Takei. We are big fans — oh my!

“The New Normal” airs Tuesday nights at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
