The Pitch Perfect star is headed to Glee, as revealed on Instagram by Darren Criss (and confirmed to ETonline by Astin's reps) this afternoon. "Me, @ChordOverstreet & @SkylarAstin... And a #DramaticSelfie for you all. So glad to have our buddy Skylar on #Glee," he captioned this photo.
Astin, who previously worked with Lea Michele in Broadway's Spring Awakening, is the fourth S.A. alum to hit Ryan Murphy's high notes (Jenna Ushkowitz, Jonathan Groff and Phoebe Strole all starred in the acclaimed musical at one point). Although those looking for Skylar and Lea to share a dynamic duet might be out of luck because it looks like his character is strictly Ohio-based.
