Neighbours star Dean Geyer joins Glee

Glee guy-er: Dean's big all-singing, all-dancing role.

Former Neighbours heart-throb and Australian Idol finalist Dean Geyer has scored his big break in Hollywood with a role in season four of Glee.

The 26-year-old South African-born actor-singer will play Brody Weston, "a handsome upperclassman" who shows an interest in Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) at their New York drama school.

"WOW!! I feel absolutely speechless, and so honoured to be joining the undeniably talented team of @GLEEonFOX!! :)," he tweeted.

"I'm very excited for the journey, and I'm warming my voice up as we speak."

While you could say his Chace Crawford good looks got him the part, it's true that he has the acting and singing experience you'd expect of a Glee cast member. Plus, he is the first Aussie actor on Glee (that we know of).

It's a lucky break for the young star who last appeared in Steven Spielberg's dinosaur drama Terra Nova, which was recently cancelled after just one season.

While he was once engaged to The Veronicas' Lisa Origliasso in 2008, Dean met current girlfriend Jillian Murray on the set of the 2011 straight-to-DVD flick Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown.

The fourth season of Glee will follow both McKinley High students and graduates, keeping all of the key members of the show, like Rachel and Finn (Cory Monteith), while introducing new, younger cast members.

Blue Lagoon: The Awakening telemovie actor Jacob Artist joins the cast as Puck's (Mark Salling) half-brother, while Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker will guest star in multiple episodes.

Check out Dean at his shirtless best in his 2007 music clip for 'If You Don't Mean It':
