'Geography Club' Adds 'Glee' Star Alex Newell To Cast

"Glee" star Alex Newell is among the young stars in "Geography Club," an adaptation of Brent Hartinger's popular novel of the same name. Newell joins Marin Hinkle, Meaghan Martin, Cameron Deane Stewart, Allie Gonino, Justin Deely, Nikki Blonsky, Scott Bakula and Ana Gasteyer in the "Geography Club" cast. (The film, from Huffington Pictures, is produced by Michael Huffington and Anthony Bretti; Huffington is the former husband of this site's Editor-in-Chief.)

"When I first read the script, I was like, 'Wow, this is going to open a lot of eyes," Newell, who stars on "Glee" as Wade "Unique" Adams, a transgender member of the show's glee club, said in an interview with ETOnline.com. "It really appealed to me because I wanted to open more eyes about it and show people this is what we go through."

"Geography Club" is out in limited release and via on-demand services on Nov. 15. More information about the film can be found here.
