Glee Season 4 Casting: New Love Interest for Kurt?

Ohhh. Glee is casting a new BRITISH actor, Oliver Kieran-Jones,  to play the head of the NYADA Glee club Kurt (Chris Colfer) is interested in joining! VIA Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Glee is bringing another new face to the mix. I’ve learned that the Fox dramedy, known for breaking fresh talent, has cast young British actor Oliver Kieran-Jones in a recurring role. (The show tends to cast newcomers as recurring and then promote those whose characters pop to regulars.) Kieran-Jones will play the leader of the glee club at NYADA, which new student Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) is interested in joining.

Michael Ausielo from TV Line is calling him a “potential love interest for Kurt,” but who knows. He could just be trolling for hits. Wouldn’t be the first time. Still, Oliver is really cute, so I approve of a dalliance between the two, as long as Klaine is end game (which I think it is).

    Is this the blond guy they were talking about? I thought about sending an audition tape in but didn’t know where to send it to

    I think this will delight the actor Chris Colfer even more than Kurt:
    this Oliver guy is  British (we know how Chris Colfer love anything British) and according to the deadline article, in real life Oliver  is a graduate of the London version of NYADA and already had a lot of stage time on a theater stage (so not in front of a camera though)….. Do I smell a male Rachel Berry/Lea Michele -without the greatsinging voice – ???

    Hope this will generate a lot of chemistry between the actors…

    now let’s see how Eli  C looks like..If  Glee dares…

    I’m team Klaine but this guy is yummy!. If Klaine is kaput (which I’m beginning to think so), at least Kurt’s new bf is candy eye. Hope he’s got great singing voice.

    OH…. poor The Glee Project contenders.

  • Axxxel

    Then again I cannot imagine any of the Glee contenders playing the love interest of Kurt.. Maybe of Blaine though… e.g. Ryder… LOL

  • Axxxel
