Jonathan Groff will be playing Jesse St. James, the lead of New Horizons’s rival Vocal Adrenaline, and new love interest for Rachel Berry.  Korbi talked to Jonathan at Paleyfest.  See the video here:

Idina Menzel [plays] the coach of Vocal Adrenaline, and I’m the lead singer,” Groff explains in the clip below. “I meet Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry, in the first episode [in April] and we sort of have an immediate connection. I want to be a star just as much as she does. … Her character hasn’t met anyone like that yet, so it’s an interesting chemistry.

E! Online‘s Marc Malkin chatted with Lea Michele about what’s coming up for Rachel Berry, including a smooch and duet (Lionel Richie’s “Hello”) with the lead singer of Vocal Adrenaline, played by former Spring Awakening co-star Jonathan Groff.

It seems like everyone on Twitter wants to know if Rachel ends up with Finn or Puck. So, what’s the deal?
I think you’ll see a little bit of both in the back nine. But I do think Rachel’s heart is with Finn. But, as you know, I have my new love interest—Jesse St. James!

So what’s it like kissing your real-life best friend? I mean, you’re kind of used to it after doing it every night when you were costarring on Broadway in Spring Awakening?
It had been a really long time, so it was interesting when we had to do it for the first time on Glee. But we had also done it so many times before that we sort of just jumped right back into it.

Idina Menzel is also guest starring on the show, but she doesn’t sing in her first episode. When will she?
You’ll have to see [laughs]. Of course, she has to sing. We haven’t done anything together, but I hope we will.



Candids from the Glee set

Photobucket

I love this group of candids from the Paramount lot where Glee is filmed. These guys look like they even enjoy all the downtime between filming. I put this as my header photo because I amr eally excited about seeing Jonathan Groff guest as the star of Vocal Adrenaline and (potentially) a love interest for Rachel. This reunites Rachel and Jonathan from their Spring Awakening days when they played lovers on stage. And his voice is like honey… See all of the photos after the jump (and a few might be considered rather SPOILERy). Continue reading
