Gleeks, time to get your giddy on. After we were treated to both photo and video teases for Cassandra July — Rachel’s acid-tongued NYADA dance instructor played by Kate Hudson — it was only a matter of time before Kurt’s Midwestern mentor came on the scene. Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce you to Isabelle, Kurt’s (seemingly much friendlier) guide to all things jazz hands, played by Sarah Jessica Parker. Glee honcho Ryan Murphy tweeted this pic of Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt, cuddling up to Parker on set. Snap judgment: If the two stars can get this close between takes, that would imply that Kurt and Isabelle’s burgeoning student/teacher relationship probably won’t end in an out-for-blood diva-off. Then again, this is Glee. Frenemies make the best competitors.
This pics brings with it a good news/bad news situation, though. While we now know that Isabelle shares Kurt’s penchant for tartan (hello, kilt at prom!), we have to wait a while to see the bottom half of her — and Kurt’s — outfit. Glee premieres on Sept. 13, but Parker won’t make her first appearance until episode 3.
