‘Glee’ Adds Two New Cast Members
On Wednesday, Fox announced that ‘Friday Night Lights’ alum LaMarcus Tinker will join the cast of its popular musical series ‘Glee’ this season, taking on the role of football player Marcus — and of soul-diva Mercedes’ new boyfriend.
One day later, news broke of yet another addition to the New Directions crew.
Former ‘American Dreams’ star Vanessa Lengies has been tapped for a recurring role as Sugar, a spoiled and tone-deaf new student at McKinley High. She’s described as a cross between a New Jersey housewife and Molly Shannon, who’s previously guest-starred on the popular musical show.
The third season of ‘Glee’ premieres Tuesday, September 20 on Fox.
