Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy is continuing to roll out the spoilers for the FOX show's fourth season. And the latest batch delivered some deets on Oxygen's The Glee Project Season 2 winner Blake Jenner’s storyline.

“@Blake_Jenner's character name is...Ryder,” Murphy tweeted. “Working on lots of great scenes for Blake and @CoryMonteith!”

Yes, folks, Jenner’s Ryder is somehow connected to Monteith’s Finn.

What could Murphy have going on in his twisted mind for the two?

Last week, Jenner dropped by the Celebuzz offices just hours after Murphy tweeted that his character would drop into Ohio on next season’s Episode 5.

“That’s insane and I’m so happy,” Jenner told us. “I was afraid that I was going to have to survive, that I’d maybe have to start Episode 14 and have to go back to eating Ramen for a long, long, long time.”

“I’m so grateful and I just can not wait to get the script and start embodying the character and just have a good time and stay truthful when I’m acting. I can’t wait,” he adds, though he knew nothing about the role then.

Miami native Jenner beat out 13 other talented contenders for the recurring role on Glee. Having studied acting since he was a child, the 21-year-old says he has weathered a lot of rejection along the way to winning the competition earlier this month.

Watch more from our interview above. And below, watch Jenner discuss his The Glee Project Journey and answer Celebuzz reader questions.
