When Pitch Perfect hit theaters in 2012, many people deemed it “a movie version of Glee.” The two both feature young actors singing covers of popular songs, so we definitely get the comparison. But did you know that Pitch Perfect‘s leading man is about to start a guest role on Glee?
Skylar Astin, who played Becca’s (Anna Kendrick) goofy and adorable love interest, Jesse, is stopping by Glee... as soon as next week! During Tuesday night’s episode, Wetpaint Entertainment asked users on Viggle LIVE! if they knew which Pitch Perfect star was headed for the Fox musical comedy, and more than 52 percent correctly identified Skylar as the special guest.
That said, a full 30 percent of Viggle users incorrectly guessed that it was leading lady Anna Kendrick who would be popping up on Glee. Another 18 percent incorrectly thought that Australian comedian Rebel Wilson was the guest star. Sigh. Only in our dreams!

Skylar will appear in next week’s Season 5, Episode 11: “City of Angels,” as Jean-Baptiste, the lead singer of Throat Explosion. The episode is set in Los Angeles, where the New Directions will be competing against Throat Explosion for the National Show Choir Championship crown.
Also, we’re going to say Throat Explosion one more time. Just because the name really is that awkward to speak aloud. Throat Explosion. Okay, we’re done.
