Dreams do come true! At Comic-Con last summer, Kevin McHale suggested Sons of Anarchy actress Katey Sagal to play Artie's mother on Glee, and on Thursday night, Ryan Murphy announced just that.
"So thrilled to announce my friend Katey Sagal is playing Artie's mom on Glee! There is nothing this woman can't do!" Murphy wrote.
Sagal will appear in one episode during May sweeps, sources tell TVLine.
