Glee has tapped Smallville patriarch John Schneider to play the father of Chord Overstreet’s trouty mouthed crooner, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The gig reunites Schneider with Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy for the first time since they worked together on FX’s Nip/Tuck (where the Dukes of Hazard vet played porn impresario Ram Peters).
Schneider — who is booked for one episode at this point — make his Glee debut in this season’s eighth episode, which just so happens to be Overstreet’s first episode back as Sam.
Thoughts on the casting? Thumbs up? Thumbs down? Thumbs sideways?
