Glee 2.0 is taking shape.
The Fox smash has tapped Aussie actor Dean Geyer (Terra Nova) and Jacob Artist (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening) to join the show’s transitional fourth season, premiering Sept. 13.
Geyer — who played security guard Mark reynolds on Fox’s dino-drama, and also had a long run on the Down Under soap Neighbours — has been cast as Brody Weston, an upperclassman at NYADA who shows an interest in Lea Michele’s Rachel. Meanwhile, back at McKinley, Artist will play Puck’s younger half-brother Jake.
The news comes as the Fox phenom is undergoing a bit of a reboot ahead of its fourth season, which finds many of the show’s core characters transitioning to post-McKinley life.
All veteran castmembers are expected back, but in varying capacities. According to reports, Michele is the only Glee thesp set to appear in all episodes produced this season. Additionally, Glee Project alums Samuel Larsen and Alex Newell are expected back on a recurring basis.Follow @MichaelAusiello
