The actor - who previously worked with Lea Michele on Broadway's Spring Awakening - will guest star on a March episode as Jean-Baptiste, the lead singer of Throat Explosion, a group that will take on New Directions at Nationals.

Astin becomes the fourth Spring Awakening alum to stop by the Fox series, as Jenna Ushkowitz, Jonathan Groff and Phoebe Strole all starred in the beloved musical at one point.

The comedy, meanwhile, is on hiatus - but you can watch Glee online now and catch up on anything you may have missed.

Glee Quotes

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?


I'm gonna miss all of you. I love you guys.
