Brace yourself Glee fans, because some of you are not going to be happy about this new casting.
According to Deadline this past Friday, British actor Oliver Kieran-Jones has been cast as a potential NYADA love interest for one Kurt Hummel.
Sources close to Glee are saying Kieran-Jones, a general newcomer to the acting scene, will play a NYADA student named Adam, and is said to be the lead of the NYADA Glee Club, which new student Kurt is interested in joining after his acceptance in “Swan Song.”
This hints that the Klaine reunion fans have predicted in the Christmas episode this week may not be as joyous as hoped.
Kieran-Jones is slated to appear in the second half of season 4, which picks back up in January following Glee’s winter break.
Could this be the beginning of a serious new relationship for Kurt? And doesn’t he finally deserve it? This reminds us of when Grant Gustin joined the show as Sebastian and got in the way of Klaine in season three.
Do you think that fans of Kurt and/or Blaine will embrace Kurt’s new love interest when Kieran-Jones joins the cast next year? Klaine fans are pretty intense on going down with their ship as was evidenced in last week’s BattleShips results. After over 42,000 votes, Klaine fans won Hypable’s first ever BattleShips by only 21 votes!
This news may start a new chapter for Kurt, but what about Blaine? Will he continue to pine over his huge mistake with Kurt or will he move on and find a new love interest himself? Only time will tell! We’ve always thought that Kurt and Blaine were meant to be together forever, but maybe that’s just not the way the cards fall for these two.
