Last week, we heard that Glee was busy casting an “imposing theatrical grande dame” who will appear this season and next. We guessed at the time it had something to do with those perhaps-budding futures in NYC – and now we’re inchin’ closer to confirming that idea (in our hopeful brains!).
Why, you ask?
E! Online has scoop the show is also casting a trio of characters who are “over-achievers who wear lots of tweed and plaid.” One of the characters is even described as “a cross between Rachel Berry and Patty Simcox from Grease.” (i.e., our worst high-school nightmare – we kid, we kid.)
The trio won’t make their debut until Season 3, Episode 19, but we’re thinking that the close timing of this casting leak and the last means they could feasibly all appear together in the same ep. And if that’s true, then we also think this could have something to do with that much-buzzed about NYADA audition both Rachel and Kurt landed earlier this season.
After all, it seems fitting that Rach would meet her match at the audition for this prestigious performing arts school, right? We just hope it doesn’t mean she’s being upstaged…
