Watch out Ken Tanaka and Sue Sylvester. There’s a new force to be reckoned with on the William McKinley practice field. Actress Dot Jones will be joining the Fox comedy in Season 2 as a new football coach. A favorite of series creator Ryan Murphy, Dot previously appeared as Tess on Nip/Tuck and had a role on Murphy’s unaired 2008 pilot Pretty/Handsome alongside future Glee players Mike O’Malley (Kurt’s dad, Burt) and Jonathan Groff (Jesse). More recently, Dot, 46, appeared on episodes of 10 Things I Hate About You and HawthoRNe.
I couldn’t figure out where I knew this actress from until I realized she was the gym coach from Lizzie McGuire… crazy! Anyway - I bet she’ll do a fantastic job in this role.
