    Apparently they've both enjoyed their collaboration on "Glee," as series creator Ryan Murphy has tapped recent McKinley High swim coach NeNe Leakes (The Real Housewives of Atlanta) to recur in his new pilot. "The New Normal" centers on a gay couple who asks a young woman to become a surrogate mother for them. Leakes will reportedly play a character named Rocky.

    Andrew Rannells ("The Book of Morman") and Justin Bartha ("The Hangover") have been cast as the couple. Georgia King ("Skins") will play the surrogate with Ellen Barkin ("Ocean's Thirteen") playing her mother.
