Molly Shannon: Cast as Sue's Nemesis on Glee

by 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

[to Kurt] You know, these Mounds bars are delicious, but you have to eat them. If you just hold them in your hand hoping that you might get to eat them one day, they're going to melt and you'll look like somebody just pooped in your hand. Don't let waiting for things to maybe work out with Blaine turn you into the guy who looks like somebody just pooped in their hand.

Blaine: Where's the bed?
Brittany: I removed it because when I imagined you two having sex I imagined a U-haul mounting a moped.
