Television Exclusive – Actress Katey Sagal Cast in Guest-Starring Role on “Glee”

Fans of the Glee character, Artie Abrams (played by Kevin McHale), will be interested to know that we will be getting to see more of his life at home near the end of this season.

Ryan Murphy recently announced, via Twitter, that Sons of Anarchy actress, Katey Sagal will be playing Artie’s mom later on this season. In a tweet, Murphy shared: “So thrilled to announce my friend Katey Sagal is playing Artie’s mom on Glee! There is nothing this woman can’t do!”

Sagal will join the show near the end of the season in Episode No. 421, which is entitled “Wonder-ful.” The cast and songs performed in this episode will pay homage to Stevie Wonder.

The casting directors and Murphy may have listened to McHale’s wishes because last year, during a Comic-Con panel, he said that Sagal is his dream mom and he would love to have her join the show as a guest-star. Plus, she does have a singing and song-writing background so she may be a good fit for the part.

What do you think of this casting choice? Do you think Sagal is the right fit to play Artie’s mom? Do you think she will have a chance to perform a song? Who is your favorite character on Glee?
