Glee Casting Scoop: Rachel's Dads to Be Played By...

by at . Comments

We can, and undoubtedly will, continue to argue about my take on this week's Glee episode, but hopefully we can all get excited together over the following show scoop:

Glee has cast Rachel's two dads!

The roles that have been discussed almost since we met young Ms. Berry will go to Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell, Michael Ausiello reports, and both will debut on the February 14 Valentine's Day-inspired episode of the series.

Goldblum is a veteran of the big and small screen (Jurassic Park, Law & Order: Criminal Intent), while Stokes is best known for his experience on Broadway (Man of La Macha, Kiss Me Kate.)

No word yet on what brings Rachel's parents into the picture, but it's safe to assume it's related to a certain question Finn posed to his girlfriend this week. Does this mean she'll say yes? SHOULD she say yes?

I hope Rachel say YES, but I think they are going to keep it as a promise of loving eachother for some years and they'll wait to get married untill they grow up... #FinchelForever

Not to offend Brian Stokes, but he's not really as black as I interrupted Rachel's dad to be considering the picture of how darker the complexion of her dad was in the picture inside her locker.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
