“Will (played by Matthew Morrison) and the Beiste go out to some bar and end up doing some singing — and a little bit a drinkin’!” Dot-Marie Jones tells TVLine of the aptly-titled episode, “Blame it on the Alcohol.”
This particular installment of Glee is extra special to Jones for one specific reason — the vocals! Believe it or not, “Alcohol” marks Beiste’s first musical number since the actress joined the hit series.
“Matthew and I are singing ‘One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,’ and it was so much fun because I’ve never sang before,” Jones shares with a laugh. “I always told [the Glee producers] that I’m no Mariah Carey, but I can carry a very small tune. In my lifetime, I’ve never expected to be saying, ‘I’m going to the recording studio.’”
Jones also advised fans of Beiste and her budding friendship with Mr. Schue not to fret. Just because football season has come and gone doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of the sports nut.
“I imagine she’ll be the coach of some other sport now,” Jones offered. “And my and Matthew’s characters are becoming really good friends. I love the sweet relationship we’re developing.”
