Glee Adds on LaMarcus Tinker and Vanessa Lengies

Ok, so you KNOW that I keep up with everything Glee. Can't wait to see the 3D concert movie Friday! Everyone knows that Glee is making transitions to graduate some of the characters (I found out a few days ago that Santina is graduating too! *Sadness* ). Well, Glee has officially added on two new cast members, Friday Night Lights' LaMarcus Tinker, and HawthoRNe's Vanessa Lengies!

According to TV Line, LaMarcus will play Marcus, a lineman for McKinley High's football team and the new love interest for Amber Riley's character Mercedes (Chord Overstreet, who played Sam and got together with Mercedes at the end of last season, has officially left the show). Vanessa will play Sugar, a spoiled new student to McKinley who can't sing to save her life, but auditions for New Directions anyway. Probably dancing more than anything. Both roles are recurring.

Even though I'm saddened to see some of my favorites go, I like the way Ryan Murphy and his team is going about this transition. Like Degrassi, slowly but surely, as older cast members leave, they're bringing in a few new ones in so that audiences will get adjusted. It's a smart move. And there will probably be an announcement within the next couple of weeks of another new cast member. The Glee Project, Oxygen's series on a search for a new member of the show, is wrapping up soon, so we'll see who wins a spot!

The third season of Glee premieres September 20 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX!
