A Male Mercedes: Coming to Glee!

at . Comments

Glee is casting for three new roles.

The show will actually be tapping unknown actors to fill these parts, as creator Ryan Murphy has told aspiring stars to post "your talent video showing us what you can do. All the roles will be chosen form the video audition process, which is exciting and unprecedented."

But what characters will hopefuls actually be trying out for? Murphy has provided the answers:

  1. A rival for Rachel.
  2. A gay jock that becomes a boyfriend for Kurt.
  3. As Murphy puts it: “A male Mercedes!”

Murphy also describes the third role is "an R&B-singing teen," one that will seemingly start a romance with Mercedes.

When asked about this possibility by Entertainment Weekly, Murphy simply teased: "Perhaps."

In other words: Count on it!

Glee returns with new episodes on April 13. Relive some of your favorite songs from the series in our Glee music section until then.

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?
