In addition to casting Jacob Artist as Puck's younger brother Jake, the FOX musical series recruits Dean Geyer to portray a NYADA student who shows an interest in Rachel.
While some actors will be appearing less in "Glee" season 4 than in the previous seasons, Chord Overstreet will have more scenes in the upcoming season. It has been reported that the Sam Evans depicter is upped to a series regular when he returns for the forthcoming chapter.
Beside Evans and the remaining members such as Tina, Artie and Blaine, the New Directions will welcome a new addition. "Blue Lagoon: The Awakening" star Jacob Artist has been cast in the role of Jake, Puck's younger half-brother who auditions for the glee club, but his bad-boy attitude could land him in trouble.
Also joining the cast is Dean Geyer, who recently played security guard Mark Reynolds on "Terra Nova". The Aussie hunk is cast as Brody Weston who is described as a handsome upperclassman at NYADA. His arrival may create a possible love rivalry for Finn since Brody shows an interest in Rachel.
Prior to recruiting Artist and Geyer, "Glee" has nabbed Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson to appear in multi-episode arcs. Executive producer Ian Brennan recently revealed that the "Sex and the City" alumna would play a frazzled, eccentric and hilarious character who is "running Vogue.com," while the "Bride Wars" actress would portray Cassandra July, Rachel's dance teacher at NYADA.
"Glee" will return with the fourth season starting Thursday, September 13 at 9 P.M. on FOX. The first episode is titled "The New Rachel" and will see Lea Michele's alter ego singing a Barbra Streisand song.
