Sue Sylvester will meet her match in an upcoming episode of Glee — and if the casting is any indication, it’s going to be a fierce battle for domination.
NeNe Leakes, from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is set to play Roz Washington, the school’s synchronized-swim team coach and Sue’s latest rival, EW has confirmed. As Gleeks saw in the preview for January episodes, the just-returned Sam (Chord Overstreet) will join the synchronized-swim team in the second half of the season.
Leakes has already filmed her first episode and there is no word on what episode she is set to appear in next, according to Fox. Although, Leakes tweeted earlier that she would return to the Glee set after the holidays.
Cast members Chris Colfer and Lea Michele also talked excitedly about Leakes’s role during their appearance Bravo’s Watch What Happens: Live! “We literally raided her trailer,” Michele told host Andy Cohen.
