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."

Glee Quotes

I had sex with you because you got me drunk on wine coolers and I felt fat that day. But it was a mistake.

Quinn [to Puck]

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?
