‘Glee’ Casts Jeff Goldblum + Brian Stokes Mitchell as Rachel’s Gay Parents
Rachel’s adoptive gay dads have never been seen in ‘Glee,’ but that’s about to change. The show has cast Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell to play the interracial same-sex couple.
TVLine says the actors are set to play Hiram and LeRoy Berry, starting in the Feb. 14 episode called ‘Heart.’ Just like the rest of the younger cast, the guys will show off their singing talents. ‘Glee’ has gotten very creative with its musical selections this season, so just imagine all the possibilities for these two performing a duet — or singing with Rachel.
Now that Rachel has received a marriage proposal from Finn, and with graduation on the horizon, it only makes sense that her fathers would figure more prominently in the show, perhaps to have some serious conversations with her. It looks like ‘Glee’ scored two talented actors for the roles.
Goldblum has appeared on Broadway and has starred in hit films like ‘Independence Day’ and ‘Jurassic Park.’ Mitchell is also a Broadway veteran, though we like him best for his portrayal of Trevor, Hilary’s newscaster boyfriend on ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.’
