Since the early days of Glee, we’ve known that diva Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) has two gay dads, but unlike Kurt’s dad and Finn’s mom, we’ve never met either of her parents. There’s been plenty of speculation though as to who should play her dads if they were ever to show up in the series, with Glee creator Ryan Murphy even suggesting at one point we should never see them, as they couldn’t live up to expectations.
However now it appears we will indeed see at least one of them, as TNT reports that Jurassic Park and Independence Day star Jeff Goldblum has signed on to play one of Rachel’s pops, with Brian Stokes Mitchell playing the other. It will give Goldblum a chance to show off his singing skills, as he will apparently take part in a duet with Rachel in the episode, which’ll be screened around Valentine’s Day.
There had been rumours Elton John would play the part, but his touring schedule rules him out.
