by at . Comments

The bad news for Glee viewers: the Fox hit won't air a new episode until April 13.

The great news for Glee viewers: they can look forward to Idina Menzel on the series when it returns!

Following weeks of rumors, the Broadway star has landed a major, recurring role on the comedy. She'll play the director of Vocal Adrenaline, New Directions' oft-mentioned main competitor.

Idina Menzel

Menzel, who won a Tony Award for her portrayal of Elphaba in Wicked (opposite fellow Glee guest Kristin Chenoweth) will appear in ALL nine spring episodes of the show!!!

The actress is married to Private Practice star Taye Diggs.

Another reason to count down the seconds until April 13: Jonathan Groff will appear as the lead male vocalist of Vocal Adrenaline... as well as a potential love interest for Lea Michele's Rachel.

    Ok I forgot the most important part, Lea looked absolutely stunning on Jimmy Kimmel the other night. My brother walked in and was like, "holly f*ck who is she" lol. They make her look so young and drab on the show. Maybe in the spring they can put some color on the girls face like they do Quinn. She is way hotter then Diana, not that Diana isn't pretty but Lea has a body to go along with that face. Damn, its inspired me to work out big time!


    Aww I know! I hope she is her long lost mother. They look to much alike unless she changes her hair color. Long live the potential love triangle of the decade....Puck/Rachel/Finn


    Well my guess is that she's going to be revealed at some point as Rachel's biological mother. they look far too much alike for it to be a coincidence and it would fit with the storyline perfectly. I hope that's how it goes t least!


    Wait? So she's been casted as completely unrelated to Rachel. The whole reason why most fans were excited for her to make an appearance is because of the ridiculously uncanny resemblance between the two. I at least hope they'll address the resemblance.
