Australian Dean Geyer Scores A Role In Glee - Everything You Need To Know About Dean

Last year

Australian hottie Dean Geyer is about to get a whole lot more fans -- because he just scored a role on Glee!

Dean is set to get some serious airtime because he will be playing Brody Weston, an older student at NYADA who is a potential love interest for Rachel (Lea Michele).

Dean tweeted, "WOW!! i feel absolutely speechless, and so honoured to be joining the undeniably talented team of @GLEEonFOX !! :)"

Of course we love an Aussie who has found success in LA -- but we don't want you to forget his Australian (and South African) roots. So here are a few things you should know about Dean.
Dean was born in South Africa, and moved to Australia when he was 15. He attended the all-boys school Melbourne High, and finished VCE in 2004.

Then everything changed, because in 2006 Dean auditioned for Australian Idol - hosted by our own Andrew Gunsberg of course! He came third, after winner Damien Leith and runner-up Jessica Mauboy. Although he didn't win, he was definitely the heartthrob of the season and was loved by teenage girls all over the country. Check out one of his performances right here.

After that Dean scored a record deal and released the single 'If You Don't Mean It', which went to #10 on the ARIA charts. His album 'Rush' hit #7, and we have an interview from these magical days that you can watch right here. Note: this interview is geo-blocked to Australia.

Next up was an engagement to Lisa from The Veronicas, an appearance in their music video for 'This Love' and gig as the supporting act on The Veronicas' tour. Yep, dating a Veronica was good for Dean. Sadly they eventually broke up.

Then Dean scored a role on Neighbours! He played Ty Harper, a love interest for Caitlin Stacy's character Rachel. The pair even performed a duet together at the Erinsborough High formal. Later his character moved to London, like so many Neighbours characters have before him. Check out Ty and Rachel's magical performance of 'Unforgettable' right here.

Dean disappeared for a little while, but then in 2011 he turned up in the US series Terra Nova! The show was filmed in Australia, and Dean played Mark Reynolds. Sadly the show was cancelled after one season, but it obviously got Dean noticed in Hollywood. Below you can see one of the many fan videos that were made featuring Dean's character Mark and his love interest Maddy (Naomi Scott).

Well that's about it. We can't wait to see Dean on Glee!
