Indeed, Groff will reprise the role of ex-Rachel Berry boyfriend/manipulative jerk, Jesse St. James, on multiple season three episodes, Murphy told those in attendance. Look for the character to share a number of scenes with Glee Project runner-up Alex Newell.

This is the second biggest casting scoop of the last few days for Glee. Fans can also look forward to the return of Chord Overstreet in December.

The show finally airs a new episode this Tuesday, November 1, and you can watch its official promo HERE.

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?
