Carol Burnett to Guest Star on Glee as Sue Sylvester's Mother 2010-08-04 10:30:59

Glee Gets Funnier: Carol Burnett to Play Sue's Mom!

How's this for a brilliant bit of TV casting? Legendary comedienne Carol Burnett has signed on to play Sue Sylvester's mother in a guest stint when Glee returns this Fall.

According to Sue, her mother was a fearless Nazi-hunter (of course she was), which makes her sound just as frightening — and perfect — as the Sylvester matriarch. There aren't any story details for the character yet, but do you really need them? I just can't wait to see their predictably hilarious rapport, and I'm wondering if Burnett and Jane Lynch will get to sing a duet together.

Before this news, I was already excited for Glee's season two (read about all the other tidbits Ryan Murphy spilled at the TCA this week). September can't come soon enough!
