John Lloyd Young

Playbill.com has learned that Tony Award winner John Lloyd Young has landed a guest-starring role on the new Fox television series “GLEE.” The former star of Broadway’s Jersey Boys will play a retired wood shop teacher with an excellent singing voice.

The new series from Ryan Murphy, creator of “Nip/Tuck,” is scheduled to begin production shortly. An air date for the first episode has yet to be announced.

“GLEE,” according to press notes, is an “inspiring one-hour musical comedy that follows an optimistic high school teacher as he tries to transform the school’s Glee Club and inspire a group of ragtag performers to make it to the biggest competition of them all: Nationals.”


  1. JLY may have to relay upon his award winning acting skills to play a “retired wood shop teacher,” but I think he was typecast as someone with “an excellent singing voice!” I’m looking forward to this show with glee!
