Dot Jones joins Glee season 2 as new football coach
Dot Jones has signed with Glee and will make her debut on season two of the show.
The former champion weight lifter and female athlete of the year has previously starred in in Cougar Town, Nip Tuck and has reportedly been a favourite with Glee creator Ryan Murphy ever since she appeared in his unaired 2008 pilot Pretty/Handsome alongside future Glee players Mike O’Malley (Kurt’s dad, Burt) and Jonathan Groff (Jesse).
In her next role, Dot will grace the William McKinley practice field and sources report that the 46 year old actress will star as the school’s new football coach in season two.
Our first thought was that the burly star may be Glee’s first recurring lesbian character? But Chris Colfer (Kurt) insisted:
“No, no. There’s only room on the show for one gay character.”
Well for now at least, but John Barrowman is still hoping for the role of Rachel’s gay dad!
