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.

Glee Quotes

Rachel: I'm just scared. I haven't been this scared in my whole life. You know, when I was in high school and I had all these big Broadway dreams, I just got used to everyone laughing at me and I figured one day I would make it and I would show them that I'm not a joke anymore. And then I did and it all fell apart and I realized that there is a whole different kind of lauging that is way worse. So...I can't. I can't fail again.
Mercedes: Rachel, we're all going to fail again and again...the hardest part is just getting up, shaking it off, and getting on with it. Let me tell you this, when you sing? Nobody's laughing.

God as my witness, I will break her down.

Santana
