Look out, Finn (Cory Monteith)! Glee has just cast the role of Brody Weston, an easy-on-the-eyes upperclassman at NYADA who takes a shine to Rachel (Lea Michele). Could this mean the official end of Finchel and the start of Brochel?
And just who is the handsome newcomer who will be playing Brody? He’s 26-year-old Dean Geyer, a singer-songwriter and actor who grew up in Australia but was born in South Africa. (Uh, how do you say “yum” in Afrikaans?)
It’s likely that you may have seen Dean’s oh-so handsome face before, as he starred on Fox’s short-lived dinosaur drama Terra Nova last season. So he’s going from a show about dinosaurs to one where the prom theme was dinosaurs? What are the odds?!
Dean has also been on a fair amount of Australian TV, having placed third on Australian Idol (not too shabby!) in 2006. He has since had a recurring role on the Aussie soap Neighbours, a show that has also given a start to such celebs as Liam Hemsworth, Kylie Minogue, and Guy Pearce. Sounds like Dean is on his way to joining that list of famous alums!
But now for the most important question: Is he single? Sadly for us, Dean is in a relationship with actress Jillian Murray, who had a recurring role on Disney’s Sonny with a Chance. The fetching couple met while co-starring in the 2011 film Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown (which sounds like a cerebral, Oscar-worthy drama — right?). Dean was also engaged to musician Lisa Origliasso back in 2008.
So tell us who’s hotter: Dean Geyer or Cory Monteith?
