Gay Football Star Among 5 Major New Characters Revealed for GLEE's Final Season!
According to the report, five new characters will be introduced for the school's incoming sophomore class including: (Per TVLine)
"RODERICK | Chubby and shy with a voice like Otis Redding, his looks don't match with his talent. Described as, "a true goober." He's the show's new underdog.
SPENCER | He's the new resident "football stud" who just so happens to possess an incredible voice. He's also gay. But, per the casting notice, "he's post-Glee gay - no one messes with him about his sexuality because he will kick their asses if they do."
JANE | Righteous, ambitious and unconventionally pretty, she's funny because she doesn't have much of a sense of humor. She wanted to be a Warbler but tradition kept her from joining so she jumps ship to the New Directions.
MASON AND MADISON | Male and female twin Cheerios. They're super-positive and extremely weird. Mason gives off a gay vibe (spoiler alert: he's not)."
The casting of the new students reaffirms show creator Ryan Murphy's promise that the final season will return to its roots and focus on life in Lima, Ohio. "We're working on the last season now, and it really feels like it's getting back to its roots, which I love," Murphy told TVLine in June. "I'm sort of reinvigorated about it. It's getting back to what I was initially interested in with the show, which was arts in school. The last season is really about the importance of arts education in our high schools... I think people will like it."
Glee will return in 2015 with a shortened 13-episode final season.
