Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Grant Gustin


Love triangles hurt—and not just because triangles have sharp edges.

A show source confirms to E! News that Glee has just cast stage actor Grant Gustin as Sebastian, a recurring role that will surely cause you Kurt and Blaine shippers to shake your fist at the sky in frustration, which was first reported by

So what kind of problems will Sebastian be causing?

Not any good problems, that's for sure.

Sebastian, who will turn up in episode five, is a gay Dalton Warbler who takes quite an interest in Blaine (Darren Criss). Supposedly, Sebastian is the opposite of Kurt (Chris Colfer), in that he's very devious, promiscuous and probably some other "ous"-suffixed word that means trouble.

A source tells TVLine that he'll be this season's "villain" and that his role is a "major" one. Gustin's recent work includes playing Baby John in the national tour of West Side Story. Which is ironic, because that's the musical that McKinley High is currently putting together as their school production.

It all makes sense now!

This is no time to panic, Klaine fans. (And this is where you reply, "No, actually, this is the perfect time to panic!") Head to the comments and start freaking out celebrating commenting. It's time to share below.
