Three new roles for Glee’s second season revealed

January 31, 2010

A football player BF for Kurt? Yes, please!

A few weeks ago, FOX announced an open casting call for three new roles in the second season of Glee, and now we’ve learned what all of the three new characters will be! As usual, you can thank Mr. Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly for these goodies, so read on for what we know about each new gleek!

  • The first new character, as I previously reported, is a boyfriend for Kurt! Here’s what creator Ryan Murphy had to say about Kurt’s future BF: “We’re going to make them a power couple. We’re not going to do the whole hiding in the shadows thing. We’re going to make them popular, and out and proud and glamorous. Like prom king and king. We’re doing the opposite of what’s been done.” Ausiello also leaked to us last week that Kurt’s guy will be on the football team!
  • Rachel won’t be a big fan of the second new gleek! According to Murphy, the second character will be “sort of a Eve Harrington [from All About Eve] to kind of steal Rachel’s thunder a little.”
  • And what about new kid #3? “The third role is an R&B-singing teen,” says Murphy. “A male Mercedes!” Hrm, is that a competitive counterpart for Mercedes, or a potential partner? Intriguing!

Do one of these roles sound like it was just made for you? All the details for the open casting call can be found here.
