'Glee' Brings Back Whoopi Goldberg And More Casting News

"Glee" is getting back in the habit with Whoopi Goldberg for Season 4.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Goldberg has been tapped to reprise her role as New York Academy of Dramatic Arts dean Carmen Tibideaux in a recurring capacity during the musical dramedy's fourth season, and will be billed as a "special guest star."

She was previously seen in a multi-episode arc during Season 3, where she decided the fates of Lea Michele's Rachel and Chris Colfer's Kurt -- choosing to admit Rachel to the hallowed halls of NYADA but denying Kurt a spot. THR also reports that "Glee Project" Season 1 winners, Samuel Larsen and Alex Newell, will recur next year, along with Season 2 winner Blake Jenner, who makes his debut in Episode 5.
