'Glee': Will Blaine's hook-up buddy Eli ever show up? Who should play?

Posted on

ELF HAMILLAvert your eyes if you  haven’t watched last night’s Glee…but for those who have you’re probably wondering, Who the hell is this Eli guy that Blaine cheated with?!?!?! Seen only in text messages, Eli is the mystery man whom Blaine admitted to Kurt about being with and caused the much-loved Glee gays to break-up.

Now, EW has learned that are no immediate plans to introduce Eli in the coming episodes. But we figure why not brainstorm who should play this troublemaker? It may be that I’ve seen too many Pitch Perfect trailers as of late, but I think Skylar Astin, who plays Anna Kendrick’s love interest in the acapella flick, might be a good choice. He’s cute and he can sing. Plus, he’s a Spring Awakening alum and would reunite him with his former castmates Lea Michele, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Jonathan Groff.

What do you think Gleeks? Who should play Eli?
