Canadian actor-singer Nolan Gerard Funk — whose credits include the Nickelodeon musical Spectacular! and the Broadway revival of Bye Bye Birdie — is joining the cast of Glee as the Warblers’ new frontman, Hunter, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Hunter’s first order of business? Luring ex-Warbler Blaine back into the fold so they can win a national championship. (And in case you’re wondering, that’s all Hunter wants with Blaine; a source confirms that the newbie is straight.)
Funk, whose resume also boasts arcs on Warehouse 13 and Angels in America, as well as a supporting role in the current big screen spooker House at the End of the Street, kicks off his recurring Glee stint in this season’s seventh episode, titled “Dynamic Duets.”Follow @MichaelAusiello
