No wonder Santana is so musically inclined. Her whole damn family is dripping with talent!
Gloria Estefan is set to play her mom, and now rapper Pitbull could be headed to Glee to play Santana’s brother! Plus, there’s news of a casting call that Rachel Berry fans have been dying to hear….
A show source confirms to us the EW.com report that the superstar rapper is being courted to appear as Santana’s (Naya Rivera) big brother, presumably in the same episode as her mom (Estefan). EW is also reporting that another huge guest star, Ricky Martin, will not be appearing in the same episode as Estefan as originally planned. He’ll be getting his own episode so Santana’s family can be front and center for a big musical number later this winter. Maybe that will be the big coming-out moment Santana fans have been waiting for?
Speaking of waiting for things, fans of Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) have been shaking their fists at Ryan Murphy & Co., demanding to finally meet her two dads. Honestly, it is long overdue, and our source tells us that casting is indeed under way to find the two men who raised Rachel. So if you Gleeks have any ideas for who should play them, we’re all ears!
Glee‘s next episode, a Christmas-themed special, airs next Tuesday on Fox.
Thoughts on these casting updates? Any other relatives you’re hoping to meet this season?
