Is McKinley High unleashing the Beiste… literally? Not quite.
Dot Marie Jones, who plays football Coach Beiste on “Glee,” has joined Chelsea Handler’s comedy pilot for NBC, “Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea,” as a guest star, according to TVGuide. The project is based on her book of the same name.
Jones will be playing a tough lesbian bully that Chelsea (Laura Prepon) meets and befriends in jail after being arrested for a D.U.I. Fun fact: The part was originally written with Rosanne Barr in mind.
Handler, who is serving as executive producer on the project, will be playing her own older sister. Also starring in the pilot is Lenny Clarke, Jo Koy, Angela Laketa, Lauren Lapkus, Natalie Morales and Mark Povinellini.
