Ricky Martin Reunited With Former Co-Star Lea Michele, Plus Some Other Folks From Glee


Ricky Martin sent a tweet to his nearly 5 million followers yesterday announcing his arrival on the Glee set. He’ll be playing “the hottest Spanish teacher ever in the history of Ohio.” And there’s a Miami (County) in Ohio, so you know this is going to be mucho caliente.

Never one to be outshone, Lea Michele tweeted to her 1.5 mill followers that she was soooo happy to be reunited at last with her “old friend” Ricky, albeit in Hollywood and not on the Great White Way like back in the day. Michele added: “I’ve known Ricky since I’m [sic] 8 years old! He was in Les Mis on Broadway with me in 1996! Crazy huh?!”

Girlfriend is dangerously close to becoming the same exact person as Rachel Berry, grammar skills notwithstanding.

There were also some other figures around, too, including proto fledgling gay icon Chris Colfer and maybe-gay Matthew Morrison.
