'Glee Project' winner Blake Jenner makes his debut as Ryder when New Directions is holding auditions for 'Grease' musical.
Two other former members of New Directions will be featured in the next episode of "Glee". Merdeces and Mike will return to McKinley High in the fifth episode of season 4, marking their first appearance on the show since last season finale.
A preview for the said outing also sees Finn talking about being a director of something. Given that the promo shows the cast singing "You're the One That I Want", it's likely that Finn is in charge of the auditions for McKinley's annual musical, where they will perform "Grease" this year.
At the same time, the show will introduce Ryder, who is portrayed by "The Glee Project" season 2 winner Blake Jenner. A potential new addition to New Directions, Ryder seemingly sets his eyes on Marley. Meanwhile, Emma is still struggling with whether or not she'll go to Washington D.C. and support Will's dream.
"Glee" is taking a hiatus after airing the October 4 outing, which saw a lot of break-ups. The new episode "The Role You Were Born to Play" will air Thursday, November 8 at 9/8c on FOX.
