Nolan Gerard Funk, who starred in the title role of Roundabout Theatre Company's Broadway revival of Bye Bye Birdie, has been cast on the Fox hit musical series "Glee," according to TVLine.com.
On the series, Funk will play the recurring role of Hunter, the new frontman of the Dalton Academy Warblers who attempts to lure Blaine (How to Succeed… star Darren Criss) back to the group.
Funk, who has also been seen in the Nickelodeon movie "Spectacular!" and "House at the End of the Street," will make his first appearance in the season's seventh episode, "Dynamic Duets."
The next episode of "Glee," entitled "The Break Up," will air Oct. 4. Here's how Fox describes the episode: "Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) are caught off-guard when they get unexpected visits in New York City. Meanwhile, Santana (Naya Rivera) and Brittany (Heather Morris) deal with the long distance between them, and Will and Emma disagree on a new job offer."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
