Earlier this week it was reported that actors Jeff Glodbloom and Brian Stokes Mitchel have been cast to play gay dads to Lea Michele‘s Rachel Berry character on Glee. Today we get our first look at Rachel and her two dads as they mug for an impromptu family photo together on the set of Glee. Lea posted the new photo on her official Twitter profile … and you can check it out below.
The Berry family has come together for “Glee”. Just days after it was reported that Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell were cast as Rachel’s gay fathers, Hiram and LeRoy Berry, the two actors showed up on the set of the musical series. Lea Michele did not waste time to pose with her on-screen dads and share the picture via her Twitter account. In the caption of the photo, which gives a look at the happy family, the Rachel depicter simply wrote, “Dads.” Previously, Michele posted a series of tweets to express her excitement to work with Goldblum and Mitchell. “So excited that we’re finally going to get to meet Rachel’s dads!!! So anxious to get to work with both of them!!” she wrote on January 19. She later added, “Brian Stokes and I have been friends for ages!!! We worked together on Broadway! So happy he’s going to be on the show!!!” In another tweet, she gushed, “This is definitely going to be the best day ever.. Getting ready to shoot my first scene with my two dads!” Goldblum and Mitchell will make their first appearance on “Glee” in an episode titled “Heart”, which is scheduled to air on February 14. They are reportedly going to sing on the FOX popular series.
HMMM. I guess it was only a matter of time until we’d get to meet Rachel Berry‘s gay dads on Glee but … I kinda liked that we never saw what they looked like. But, since the pair have been a complete no-show for 3 seasons now, it makes sense that the folks at Glee would want to capitalize on the gay dads’ first appearance on the show. I’m glad that the Glee actors are allowed to tweet photos like this from the set. It adds to the fun of the show to see personal photos like this from the actors themselves. This first look at the Berry family is very cute, I think. What do you think of Rachel‘s gay dads?
