Glee has a history of featuring AH-mazing actresses as mothers to the members of New Directions…
Ryan Murphy cast Idina Menzel as Lea Michele's mamma, while Gloria Estefan KILLED it as Naya Rivera's sweet and sassy mom, AND Jacob Artist gets to pretend he passed through the loins of Aisha Tyler!
And NOW Mr.Murphs has chosen the legendary Katey Sagal, who voices ass-kicking cyclops Leela in Futurama AND plays an equally badass character on Sons of Anarchy, to play the part of Kevin McHale AKA Artie's mother in the upcoming Stevie Wonder tribute episode!!
Ryan tweeted the news Thursday, posting:
While Kevin wrote:
Kevin actually expressed his desire for Katey to play his mom while at Comic-Con AND also revealed he's like Harry Connick Jr. to play his father…
Fingers crossed he gets his wish granted in FULL!
