The official word: It’s back to school for newcomers Dean Geyer and Jacob Artist as they join GLEE when the hit show returns Thursday, Sept. 13 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
In the season premiere, RACHEL BERRY (Lea Michele) lands in New York City to attend NYADA and meets BRODY WESTON (Geyer), a handsome upperclassman who shows an interest in her. Meanwhile, back at McKinley, PUCK’s (Mark Salling) bad boy younger half-brother, JAKE PUCKERMAN (Artist), tries out for the glee club, but his attitude could derail his audition.
Geyer was on the Australian TV series, “Neighbours.” He also was a contestant on “Australian Idol” and guest-starred on FOX’s “Terra Nova.” The 26-year-old singer/songwriter was born in South Africa.
Artist starred in the TV movie “Blue Lagoon: the Awakening” and was featured on the comedy series “Melissa & Joey.” He grew up in New York and graduated with honors from Williamsville South High School.
Entering its fourth season, GLEE is a musical comedy about a group of ambitious and talented kids who escape the harsh realities of high school by joining a glee club where they find strength, acceptance and ultimately their voice. This year, the senior class is riding high from their Nationals win and enjoying a bit of popularity, while the graduating class leaves the comforts of McKinley for the cruel streets of New York as they open a new chapter and continue chasing their dreams. As previously announced, Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award nominee Kate Hudson will join the cast in a six-episode arc, and Emmy Award-winning actress and fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker also will guest-star, in her first return to television since “Sex in the City.”
