Glee Adds Another Broadway Vet To Season 5 Cast (UPDATED)


Managing Editor

It seems like Glee is adding guest stars left and right in the lead-up to its September 26th premiere.

Adam Lambert was announced via Twitter last month:

Monday brought us news of Demi Lovato’s scheduled guest appearance as Rachel and Santana’s friend Dani.

Today’s addition comes from Broadway rather than the world of pop and/or Fox reality television personalities. Lea Michele’s fellow Spring Awakening alum Phoebe Strole will join the cast in season 5.

UPDATE: Deadline reports that Strole will appear as Penny Owen, a “sophomore in college who wants to get into nursing school and who becomes Sam’s (Chord Overstreet) new love interest.”

What do you think of the new additions? Is there anyone else you want to see? Get your requests in now while Ryan Murphy is in a casting mood.
