Broadway darling Cheyenne is the newest addition to McKinley High School – but what does his appearance mean for the rest of the cast?

Hey, Gleeks – it’s time to get yourself acquainted with Cheyenne Jackson, because the Broadway star is about to take over for one of the cast members on the second season of  your favorite Fox show, Glee.  So who’s going?

Sorry, BFFs, but Cheyenne is filling in for Idina Menzel as the glee coach of New Directions’ rival, Vocal Adrenaline, reports EW. But don’t worry TOO much – she isn’t going far. Idina DID adopt Quinn’s (Dianna Agron) baby in the season finale, after all, and she still needs to make things right with her daughter, Rachel (Lea Michele).

PS – if you don’t know Cheyenne, get with the program. The 35-year-old openly gay hottie is an award-winning Broadway vet after having starred in Xanadu, All Shook Up and Finian’s Rainbow, released an album in 2009, starred in the film United 93 AND appeared on 30 Rock in 2009.

Yep, you BETTER be worried, Will Schuester – you’ve got some stiff competition!
