'Awkward': Anthony Michael Hall Joins MTV Series And More Casting News

"Awkward" is getting two new additions for Season 3: Anthony Michael Hall, "Breakfast Club" alum, and Nolan Funk, best known as Warbler Hunter on "Glee," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hall will play Mr. Hart, "a sadistic creative writing teacher" and an important part of Season 3, THR reports. Funk, meanwhile, will play Collin James, a confident new prep school transfer.

"The driving force of Season 3 will be 'Who do I want to be?' and making a choice in the decision of identity," "Awkward" creator Lauren Iungerich told The Hollywood Reporter.
