TCA: Dean Geyer and Jacob Artist join “Glee”


As FOX’s hit series Glee enters its fourth season this fall, it will be back to school for newcomers Dean Geyer (pictured bottom) and Jacob Artist (pictured top) as they join the show when it returns on a new night — Thursday, Sept. 13, at 9pm ET/PT.

In the season premiere, Rachel (Lea Michele) lands in New York City to attend NYADA and meets Brody Weston (Geyer), a handsome upperclassman who shows an interest in her. Meanwhile, back at McKinley, Puck’s (Mark Salling) bad boy younger half-brother, Jake Puckerman (Artist), tries out for the glee club, but his attitude could derail his audition.

Geyer was on the Australian TV series Neighbours, was a contestant on Australian Idol and guest-starred on FOX’s short-lived Terra Nova last season. The 26-year-old singer/songwriter was born in South Africa.

Artist costarred in Lifetime’s recent movie Blue Lagoon: The Awakening and was featured on the series Melissa & Joey. He grew up in New York.
