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.
