You know I love me some Broadway. I've been fawning over super hottie singer Cheyenne Jackson for years.

Now I can be doubly happy that TV Fanatics can fall for him too.

Tonight, the crooning hunk, who's been all over the airwaves lately, makes a guest appearance on Ugly Betty!

The Xanadu on Broadway star says he had a blast playing a "gay dad" who becomes the love interest of Michael Urie's character Mark.

"Michael's a friend of mine in real life so it was very fun to film," Cheyenne told OK!'s Oliver Coleman recently at the Broadway Backwards 4, a performance in support of the LGBT Community Center.

"Plus they’re a great group, a wonderful little family, and they're very theater friendly. Everybody knew who I was which never happens!”

Cheyenne admits it’s a small part, but he’s hoping, “if they like it, they’ll write more."


If that happens, Cheyenne is going to have a busy fall. The TV Fanatic hears that the singer is about to film an upcoming guest spot on the new Fox series Glee.

Created by Nip/Tuck showrunner Ryan Murphy, the musical comedy follows a high school singing group trying to get to nationals.  

Well, Cheyenne would be a perfect fit!

Check out Cheyenne on Ugly Betty, Thursday March 5 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Mark your calendars. Fox is running a sneak peek of Glee May 19.
