“Glee” is taking a fresh approach in Season 4 — as a handful of beloved characters graduate, we’ll follow them as their paths take them away from McKinley High, but the high school glee club will remain central to the story.
Of course, broadening the scope of the show means it’s time to bring in new characters — and “Glee” bosses have put out a casting call for three new series regulars. (No word yet on whether established recurring guest stars like Chord Overstreet and Vanessa Lengies will be upgraded to series regular status.)
The first newbie they’re looking for is a male character in the early- to mid-twenties age range. Since he’s obviously too old for McKinley, we’re guessing he’ll come into play for one of the graduating characters. Needless to say, they’re looking for an actor who is also a fantastic singer.
Back at McKinley, a sixteen-year-old girl will be joining as a regular. The only requirements on the casting call? She’s got to be “pretty” — and she’s got to be able to sing.
The most intriguing fresh face, however, is Noah Puckerman’s 16-year-old younger brother. They’re looking for someone who is not only good looking and resembles Mark Salling, but who can play the guitar — just like big bro! Of course, we haven’t heard Puck mention his brother before, just a sister, so the dynamic between the Puckerman boys is anyone’s guess.
Any suggestions for who you’d like to see play the three new roles? Weigh in below in the comments section.
