Glee Casting: New Gay Warbler Sets His Sights on Blaine

Keep in mind that this bit of news is not confirmed, and comes from TV Line’s Mike Ausiello who has a tendency to troll his own readers.   His characterization of the storyline is probably exaggerated to maximize the freakout from the fanbase and get those tumblers REBLOGGING!  He’s also posted info that turned out to be false. (oh, and where’s Sheila?).  So, grain of salt and all that.

It looks like the honeymoon is over for Kurt and Blaine.

Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that Glee has tapped up-and-coming theater actor Grant Gustin to play the recurring role of Sebastian, a gay Dalton Academy Warbler who sets his sights on Blaine.

Both Fox and the show’s producers declined to comment, but the buzz is that Sebastian is the polar opposite of Kurt in every possible way. He’s more like the male version of Santana in that he’s both promiscuous and kinda-sorta scheming.

“He’s our villain this season, ” an insider tells me. “It’s a major role.”

Glee casters found Gustin, who played Baby John in the national tour of West Side Story, in an “exhaustive weeks long casting search.” Gustin will reportedly turn up in this season’s fifth episode.

I believe the cast is filming that episode right now. There have been reports of filming going on at the address where the Dalton Academy scenes were shot last season.
