| Filed under: TV NewsGlee

No offense to him, but when we heard news that we were getting a new Gleeky dad on the show, we were holding out for one of Rachel Berry's gay papas!

Whomp, whomp! This is good news too though!

On his Twitter this morning, David Alan Grier announced that he has been cast as Mercedes estranged father. David character is said to be in a 3 episodes arc and is described as a "singing, dancing homeless" man!

Homeless?! Really!? Twist!

OMG, he isn't going to be Patches, is he??? What a clever throwback that would be to the first season!

We're glad to see Ryan Murphy is branching out into his other character's families. Not that we don't love Rachel and Kurt, but even we're ready to learn more about the rest of the club! (More Heather Morris, if you please!)

    Mercedes said her dad was a dentist in one of the episodes..?



  2. 2

    Wow, he's really getting around to all the shows, eh? First Bones, now Glee.

    In the episode where Sue uses minorities Mercedes says her dad is a dentist… Ooopsie! They should keep their story lines straight!

    I thought she said her dad was a dentist.



  5. 5

    She said that her dad was a dentist?? Did the writers forget this??

    Mercedes said her father was a dentist–what is going on?

    Re: shan_non – Yes she sure did. You beat me to commenting that.

    "More Heather Morris, if you please!" ?

    Oh Perez, I have never agreed so much with you! xxxx

    Pretty sure in one of the first episodes Sue called Mercedes lower class and Mercedes went "My dad's a dentist!"…

    Is he going to play the janitor? Who loves to sing. Then you find out he was in a popular singing group in the 70's, lost all of his money on a gambling addiction but now will lead the glee club in a Shaft remake.

    I remember that Mercedes stated her father is a dentist also. Since Grier will be play her "estranged father, maybe she has a step-father who is a dentist?



  12. 12

    yeah what happened to her dad being a dentist? is the dentist dad not her biological dad?



  13. 13

    I know everyone else has mentioned this, but I can't help it… Mercedes said her dad is a dentist back in early season one! So, not only were they not estranged then, but I doubt he became a homeless entertainer in the span of a year…



  14. 14

    Maybe her STEP father is a dentist. Since it is stated that he is her "estranged" father.



  15. 15

    Being a Dentist is very stressful and has the highest suicide rate of professions. It would be easy to "work" his current homelessness into the story line. Hey, Mario, is it getting better for you yet?

    I think David Alan Grier is some of the best actors. He's funny and so talented. I just wish someone would give him a great role. I fell in love with him in Living Color and have never been disappointed. Yeah for Glee!

  19. 19

    Um, isn't Mercede's dad a dentist?



  20. 20

    To everyone saying "she said her dads a dentist", perhaps the story is she lied because she was embarassed he was homeless?
