New characters and cast members for GLEE's third season

GLEE's ensemble of actors already includes Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Mike O'Malley, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Darren Criss, Chord Overstreet, and Jenna Ushkowitz - and the show will add even more to the mix with the introduction of a slew of new characters for the third season.

Who are these new faces? Well, has the scoop!

Two "mean girls" will be added to the cast: "Sugar" and "Sheila." According to the report, "Sugar is... well, she's basically RHNJ's Danielle Staub, only in high school. Affluent, self-confident and a godawful singer. Sheila, a modern-day Joan Jett, actually has her own pack of Blackhearts and the tats to go with 'em."

Joining these two will be "Bubba," a love interest for Amber Riley's Mercedes and a football player, and "Nancy," a math teacher with an aversion to arts in school.

Casting for "Bubba" has been completed, according to Variety. LaMarcus Tinker - best known for his role on the television series Friday Night Lights - will take the role.

Tinker also appeared on ABC's Cougar Town and will appear in the 2012 film The First Time.
