There will be more than a couple new faces at Glee‘s McKinley High this coming season, it’s already been confirmed that Jacob Artist will be playing the role of younger brother to Puck, Jake Puckerman. Now we’re getting scoop from TVLine that there will be a couple new female characters patrolling the halls at McKinley as well.
“TVLine has learned exclusively that Homeland actress Melissa Benoist…and relative newcomer Becca Tobin are joining the show’s Season 4 cast.”
In other casting news, E! Online reports that Whoopi Goldberg will be reprising her role on Glee as Carmen Tibideaux, the dean at NYADA who, you’ll remember, originally wasn’t too thrilled with our Ms. Rachel Berry. While we’re on the subject of deans and divas…it seems, judging by the promo for the season 4 premiere, that Alex Newell from The Glee Project‘s season 1 will be returning for more episodes (as a New Directions newcomer, it looks like), along with Samuel Larsen as Joe Hart of course.
Head to the comments and share what you think about Glee‘s newest cast members, and these old recurring favorites.
