Geyer in love with his US role

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TUESDAY EXTRA -

ac­tor and singer Dean Geyer is join­ing the cast of Amer­i­can high school mu­si­cal satire Glee. Geyer and Ja­cob Artist were an­nounced as Glee’s two new­est cast mem­bers on Mon­day. The for­mer Aus­tralian Idol con­tes­tant learned the good news from his agent af­ter he did a screen test at Para­mount, per­form­ing an acous­tic ver­sion of Justin Tim­ber­lake’s Cry Me a River. He’ll start work­ing in the new role to­mor­row. Geyer will play Rachel’s (Lea Michele) new love in­ter­est Brody We­ston, ac­cord­ing to the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter. The role is a big step-up from his role on Aus­tralian soap Neigh­bours and Geyer is ex­cited. ‘‘I’ve never been on a show or a project with a bud­get like this, with tal­ent like this. I’m look­ing for­ward to it be­cause I get to sing and act, which are my two big­gest pas­sions,’’ he says. How­ever, Geyer ad­mits he’s a lit­tle ner­vous about po­ten­tially com­ing be­tween Rachel and Finn (Cory Mon­teith), and their le­gions of fans. ‘‘They’ve been to­gether for what, three sea­sons now? It’s go­ing to be tough, I know they have a lot of fans. I don’t want to be that per­son to break them up but at the same time, it’s fun to play some­one that cre­ates some sort of ten­sion. I’ve got­ten a lot of tweets ask­ing if I’m go­ing to be the dude who breaks them up (laughs). I could be a po­ten­tial love in­ter­est, I could not be,’’ Geyer says.

Com­ing soon, Ten, Ten SC.
