Looks like Coach Beiste could be ordering a second bowl of pasta the next time she calls for Breadstix takeout. Nope, she’s not ramping up her carb-loading, and as far as we know, she’s not pregnant. But TVLine has learned exclusively that Beiste, played by the delightful Dot-Marie Jones (a 2011 Emmy nominee for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series), may have a very special dinner companion in her future.
Indeed, the show’s producers have cast Eric Bruskotter in what’s being described as a major recurring role of Johnny, a football recruiter who comes scouting for talent at McKinley, but finds he can’t take his eyes off the team’s gruff but big-hearted coach. Bruskotter has previously had recurring roles on 24,Six Feet Under and Providence, and most recently appeared in an episode of Franklin & Bash.
Dot Marie Jones - “Episode 3 is hilarious, has some really good lines.”
“Episode 5 will break your heart.”
WHAT?! Don’t do that!!!
