Casting Spoiler! Rapper Pitbull Courted to Play [SPOILER]; Plus Prepare to Meet Rachel's Gay Dads!Thursday, December 08, 2011
Santana (Naya Rivera) has an awfully talented family. EW already broke the news that the Gleecharacter’s mother will be played by none other than Latin superstar Gloria Estefan, but now we can exclusively tell you who’s being wooed to play her brother: rapper Pitbull! Yep, our source tells us that producers are hoping to land the “Give Me Everything” rapper to play Estefan’s son and Rivera’s big bro.
One other development is that Estefan and the other buzzed-about Glee guest star Ricky Martin will NO longer be appearing in the same episode. Martin will be getting his own episode in January while Estefan’s (and hopefully Pitbull’s) ep will air later this winter. The change was made so that there could be a giant family musical number in the Estefan episode.
And now for some scoop that Gleeks have been dying to hear: the show is beginning to cast for… RACHEL’S GAY DADS!!! Yep, it sounds like we will see the much-discussed-but-never-seen-duo by the end of season 3. I mean, they gotta be present for Rachel’s graduation day at the very least. Who do you think Glee producers should cast?
