What a week for Glee news!
First, it was announced that the show has been picked up for a full season by Fox.
Next, it was revealed that Joss Whedon will direct a future episode.
Now, we can confirm that Lea Michele is about to be reunited with her Spring Awakening co-star. Entertainment Weekly reports that Jonathan Groff will take on a recurring, upcoming role.
Appearing on at least five episodes, the Broadway star will play the lead male singer of Vocal Adrenaline, the quasi rival of New Directions. Says Glee creator Ryan Murphy:
“He is a male diva... a miva" and he'll serve as potential love interest for Michele’s Rachel."
This is Jonathan Groff. That's Lea Michele. And this scene from Spring Awakening is hot.
Groff was recently seen in the movie Taking Woodstock and has also appeared on One Life to Live.
