Chord Overstreet’s Sam Evans is way too cute to be without a love interest on Glee, now that Heather Morris’ Brittany has gone away to school. And we all know Blaine won’t be happening anytime soon…sigh. (Sorry, fellow Slaine! shippers.) So what’s a Sam to do? Apparently Sam’s getting a new love interest!

Deadline and TV Guide both spoil that Spring Awakening‘s Phoebe Strole has been cast in the recurring role of Penny.

Phoebe Strole, member of the original cast of the 2006 musical Spring Awakening, is reuniting with co-star Lea Michele on Michele’s Fox series Glee. Strole, repped by APA and Principal Entertainment NY, will recur as Penny Owen, a sophomore in college who wants to get into nursing school and who becomes Sam’s (Chord Overstreet) new love interest.

Do you think Sam will have his eyes on Penny, or will she have eyes for him? Hit the comments with your theories.
