'Glee' Adds Pair to McKinley High for Season 4
Fox's Glee is repopulating McKinley High, adding a pair to the Ohio-set side of the series.
Becca Tobin and Melissa Benoist have booked recurring roles on the musical dramedy, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Tobin (Wiener & Wiener) and Benoist (Homeland, The Good Wife) will play McKinley students Kitty and Marley, respectively, on Season 4 of the series as co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk look to beef up the cast in the wake of the graduation of many of its core cast.
The duo join fellow newcomers Jacob Artist and Dean Geyer, who will play Puck's younger half-brother Jake Puckerman and Brody Weston, a potential love interest for Lea Michele's Rachel, respectively.
Benoist is repped by CESD and Authentic Talent and Literary Management.
Executive producer Ian Brennan said at Comic-Con this month that New Directions will look to start rebuilding following the graduation of core members Kurt (Chris Colfer), Rachel and Finn (Cory Monteith), among others.
"They're underdogs again, that room is half empty and they're desperately trying to get 12 kids for Sectionals," Brennan said.
No word on if Kitty and Marley will be part of those plans.
TV Line first reported the castings.
