stars who will make an appearance on the show next month. Speculations have been rampant as to who may be playing Rachel’s gay fathers. But speculate no more.

The coveted roles have gone to PA native Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell. The two actors will play Hiram and LeRoy berry, the adoptive parents of Lea Michele’s character when the episode debuts on Feb. 14 – just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Will they sing? Apparently so.

We didn’t know Goldblum was a singer, but he’s starred in several Broadway productions. And his online resume says he’s also a talented pianist. As if we needed another reason to love him.

And Mitchell – also a Broadway veteran – has been in plenty of musicals, like Jelly’s Last Jam and Kiss Me Kate. Audiences may also remember him from Frasier and as the hunk Vanessa Williams courted on Ugly Betty.

So what do you think? Good choices?
