Earlier this month, Glee creator Ryan Murphy gave me the scoop on two of the three new characters he’s planning to add to the cast in season 2. To recap, those roles are an Eve Harrington-esque rival for Rachel and a gay jock-slash-boyfriend for Kurt.
Well, the time has come for me to exclusively reveal the identity of the third and final Glee newbie…
“The third role is an R&B-singing teen,” Murphy tells me. “A male Mercedes!”
When asked whether the counterparts would duet, ahem, outside the choir room, Murphy teased, “Perhaps.”
Translation: Kurt isn’t the *n** seemingly celibate **ee *h*r***e* **tt*** * *o** i******t *e*t *e****!
As previously reported, Murphy and Co. are launching a nationwide casting call next month to fill all three roles.
Thoughts on Rookie No. 3?
