This week we learned that Rachel's gay dads will be coming to Glee
in the Valentine's Day episode, and now we have our first look. Star Lea Michele tweeted a photo
of herself with the two actors who will be playing he fathers, Broadway
star Brian Stokes Mitchell and the supremely awesome Jeff Goldblum.Glee Casts Rachel's Gay Dads>>
Glee is available on Amazon Prime.
The guest appearance is a rare TV role for Mitchell, whose only other television appearance in the past decade was on an episode of Ugly Betty
. However, he fits perfectly with Glee
as he is a Tony-winning Broadway star who was worked with Michele in the past. Hopefully Glee
will actually let him sing, unlike Will's dad, the equally talented Victor Garber.
Goldblum, on the other hand, is no stranger to TV, though he might be better known for his film roles in The Fly
, Jurassic Park
and Independence Day
. He starred on Raines
and Law and Order: Criminal Intent
, and last year he gave a hilarious guest appearance as Ruxin's father on FX's The League
The two will play characters first referenced in the show's pilot, Leroy and Hiram, though a photo of them hanging in Rachel's locker bears no resemblance to the two actors. They will be featured in the February 14 episode, "Heart."(Image courtesy of twitter.com/msleamichele)
