A nice bit of imaginative casting announced for Glee: Sons of Anarchy co-star Katey Sagal will join the cast as Artie’s mom!
Sagal will appear in episode No. 421 dubbed “Wonder-ful,” which will pay tribute to Stevie Wonder.
“So thrilled to announce my friend Katey Sagal is playing Artie’s mom on Glee!” Co-creator Ryan Murphy announced on Twitter. “There is nothing this woman can’t do!”
The Glee casting folks may have found inspiration from Artie’s alter-ego Kevin Hale. He mentioned during last summer’s Comic-Con panel that Sagal is his dream mom, while Harry Connick Jr. should play his dad. (No word about that).
Sagal’s appearance won’t affect her day job as Gemma Teller Morrow on SOA, which doesn’t begin filming its new season until May 15.
