An 'Episodes' alum is heading to the New York Academy of Dramatic Arts to spice up Kurt's love life during the fourth season of 'Glee.'
Oliver Kieran-Jones has signed on for the role, where he will play the head of the glee club at NTADA and be romantically involved with Chris Colfer's Kurt, following Kurt's admission to the academy (which is run by Whoopi Goldberg's Carmen).
Kieran-Jones appeared in four episodes of Matt LeBlanc's 'Episodes,' as well as a guest spot on 'Midsomer Murders.' His contract gives him the option of becoming a series regular if the series is renewed for a fifth season.
This new may upset some series fans who longed for Kurt to get back with Blaine, his ex-boyfriend played by Darren Criss. But Criss says it is good for the couple to explore life apart and, if things are meant to be, they will reunite.
"Challenge is good for any relationship," Criss said. "So whether or not it ultimately is staying together or staying apart, I think it's good for both of them to have some kind of medium factor in their lives."
Ryan Murphy certainly has no problem with pissing off Conservative Americans, does he? What do you make of this news?
