"Glee's" fourth season will also introduce "Gleeks" to a couple of new series regulars who are seriously easy on the eyes! Jacob Artist, 19, will play the younger half-brother of Mark Salling's character Puck. While the show is notoriously secretive about which performances are coming up in its repertoire, Artist recently confessed to Zap2it that he's hoping one particular tune makes it into an episode. "I sang 'Never Say Never' by The Fray for my audition, and I love that song — it's such a great song — so I'd love if they could throw that in there somewhere at some point." Dean Geyer, 26, has the more controversial role as Rachel's new love interest now that she Finn have gone their separate ways. "He's definitely been through the ropes. He's a couple years older [than Rachel] and has done Broadway before and that's something she really looks up to and is aspiring to," Geyer recently explained to The Hollywood Reporter. There's room in there to be a bit of a teacher and mentor rather than a love interest so it could go that way. It's definitely going to be fun for me since I started out as a musician. I've never done Broadway or theater, so it's going to be a new experience for me."
Kate Hudson is set to appear on upcoming episodes of "Glee," too. The "Almost Famous" actress will play Cassandra July, Rachel's dance teacher at the New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts, where she is studying. Reportedly, Hudson will show off her singing and dancing skills again, as she did in 2009's "Nine."
The new season of "Glee" airs Thursday, September 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
