Last summer at Comic-Con, McHale floated the idea of Katey Sagal playing his never-before-seen mother on Glee, and — voilà — Murphy announced late Thursday that the Sons of Anarchy anti-heroine has landed that very role.
“So thrilled to announce my friend Katey Sagal is playing Artie’s mom on Glee,” Murphy wrote on Twitter. “There is nothing this woman can’t do!”
According to sources, Sagal will appear in one episode (slated to air during May sweeps).
There’s no word if Murphy plans to follow through on McHale’s No. 1 choice for Artie’s dad — Harry Connick, Jr.
Glee returns with new episodes on April 11.
