It's a central point of Glee's rich mythology, established in the pilot, that Lea Michele's Rachel Berry has a pair of gay fathers at home. Mid-season 3 — on Valentine's Day, to be exact — those mystery dads will be revealed. One is Jeff Goldblum, the other is Broadway star Brian Stokes Mitchell, and their characters are called Hiram and LeRoy Berry. Go forth with the knowledge that Goldblum and Mitchell will definitely sing.
