Jonathan Groff to return to 'Glee'? (spoilers)
Jonathan Groff is set to reprise his role as villain Jesse St. James on the FOX musical comedy series "Glee," a report says.
Groff, 26, played a member of a rival high school glee club who romanced, manipulated and later dumped Lea Michele's character, glee club diva Rachel Berry.
Warning: Spoiler alert!
Groff has closed a deal to appear on the final three episodes of the current second season of "Glee," TVLine.com reported, quoting a source close to the show as saying: "He's back to apologize to Rachel ... and perhaps get her back."
Groff's spokesperson had no immediate comment. The season two finale of "Glee" has been set to air on May 24, the Hollywood Reporter said earlier this month.
"Had such an awesome day with my cast yesterday and my best friend Jon Groff celebrating his birthday!" Michele said on her Twitter page on Sunday, March 27, a day after Groff turned 26.
On Monday, March 28, Michele Tweeted: "Having a great day on set today:) Proms coming up at McKinley...wonder who Rachel will go to the prom with...? I think I know..... :)"
The two are good friends in real life and also played lovers in the musical "Spring Awakening," which debuted on Broadway in 2006. In August 2010, two months after his character's last appearance on the season one finale of "Glee," Groff starred in a revival of Ira Levin's 1978 play "Death Trap" in London.
Another "Glee" character appeared set to return - Sunshine Corazon, played by singer Charice. Corazon engaged in a vocal battle with Berry in a public restroom and almost joined her glee club before St. James' rival group snatched her up. Charice said in November in a chat session with Billboard.com that she would likely return to the "Glee" set in January.
"Look who's back!! @officialcharice!!! So happy!!!" Michele Tweeted, alongside a photo of the two.
