Glee has already had some awesome guest stars in Season 5, like Chace Crawford (Biff) and Skylar Astin (Jean-Baptiste). Now, we're learning about one more name to add to the impressive list!
On April 9, TV actress Geri Jewell revealed that she has just filmed a role for an upcoming Glee episode. "I am not allowed to mention story line, or my role.... but it will probably air in two to three weeks," she writes. "What a wonderful cast & crew to work with!! Currently, I am gratefully gleeful!"
If you ask us, this is a very appropriate casting choice! Indeed, if you're not quite familiar with who Geri is, she played Cousin Geri on the '80s sitcom Facts of Life. And as you know, Sam has been obsessed with that show lately. Talk about meta!
We're unsure which episode Geri will appear in, but we have a feeling it might be Season 5, Episode 19: "Old Dog, New Tricks," which the show has been working on recently. Chris Colfer wrote that episode, and another Glee writer teased on Twitter over the weekend that it would have some "very cool guests." So Geri would definitely qualify!
Are you looking forward to seeing Geri on Glee? And who do you think she'll play?
