A casting call has gone out for a Glee recurring character, possibly to become a series regular:
GIRL] Female, 16 and above (to play high school) -PRETTY, star quality. SHE MUST SING WELL…we are looking for more of a pop sound rather than Broadway. Please submit all ethnicities. RECURRING WITH SERIES OPTION.
FOX execs have already announced the addition of two new cast members, Dean Geyer, who will play a potential love interest for Rachel in New York City, and Jacob Artist as Puck’s younger brother who will audition for the Glee club.
Chord Overstreet, who plays Glee clubber, Sam Evans has been promoted to series regular.
Jessica Sanchez is rumored to be negotiating for a guest spot on Glee. The 16 year old American Idol alum will neither deny nor confirm in interviews, hinting that she does indeed have projects in the pipeline. Fingers crossed!
