Who He’s Playing: Spencer, the new resident “football stud” who just so happens to possess an incredible voice. He’s also gay. But, per the role’s casting notice, “he’s post-Glee gay — no one messes with him about his sexuality because he will kick their asses if they do.”
Where You’ve Seen Him:Canadian Idol finalist in 2008, he’s since been seen in episodes of Saving Hope and Alphas, and starred in the TV movie How to Build a Better Boy. (Learn a little more about him via the Winnipeg Free Press.)
Who She’s Playing: Jane, a righteous, ambitious and unconventionally pretty gal, she’s funny because she doesn’t have much of a sense of humor. She wanted to be a Warbler, but tradition kept her from joining — so she jumps ship to the New Directions.
Where You’ve Seen Her: A newbie to the small screen, Ware cut her teeth on Broadway, playing Nala in The Lion King, then co-starring in The Book of Mormon‘s first national tour. Next stop, McKinley!
