Molly Shannon: Cast as Sue's Nemesis on Glee

at . Comments

A touch of Saturday Night Live is coming to Glee.

Molly Shannon will guest star this May on the musical comedy, playing a role that sounds almost too delicious to be true.

Originally reported by EW.com and then backed up by E! News, Shannon will portray Brenda Castle. She'll be a nemesis for Sue and:

"[A] busty 45-year old new astronomy teacher and badminton coach at McKinley high-school who is both an alcoholic and a pill-popper," said an insider.

Ignoring the atrocity that was Kath & Kim, Shannon has appeared on episodes of Pushing Daisies and 30 Rock.

Glee (fianlly!) returns to Fox on April 13.

Glee Quotes

My name is Mercedes Jones and I don't have a lot of friends at this school. I mean, it's not like I get picked on and folks are nice, I guess, but there sure are a lot of white folks here at McKinley. I mean, there is that one black kid but he's real boring. I'm a star at my church where everybody knows I got a big ass voice, but here? I'm just a nobody. But that's all gonna change real soon.

You can't change your past. But you can let go and start your future.
