Oliver Kieran-Jones

New York. New school. New guy?!

Glee has just cast Oliver Kieran-Jones to play a potential love interest for Kurt (Chris Colfer), E! News has confirmed.

After being accepted into NYADA in last night's episode of the Fox hit, Kurt will meet Kieran-Jones' character when he officially kicks off his freshman year in the spring. Jones' character (no name has been revealed) is the head of a glee club at NYADA.

The British actor is relatively unknown, with a few episodes of Showtime's Episodes under his belt. While his Glee gig is currently a recurring role, there's a chance he could be bumped up to series regular if the show is picked up for a fifth season.

Of course, Kurt recently split with boyfriend Blaine (Darren Criss), so we're sure fans of the couple will have a lot to say about this! However, Colfer and Criss have both expressed interest in Klaine drama in past interviews, with Criss telling us, "We're like an old married couple now. Let's shake it up!" Colfer seconded the request, saying, "Let's throw some spice and drama into that [relationship]." Wish granted, fellas!

Deadline first reported the news of Kieran-Jones' casting.

Glee airs Thursday at 9 p.m. on Fox.
