Glee Spoilers from Carol Burnett

Funny lady Carol Burnett will be a guest star on the November 23 new episode of Glee as Sue Sylvester’s mother, Doris Sylvester. You know, the one who hunts Nazis. Burnett spoke with TV Guide to give them a few spoilers about her character.

First, this won’t be a one-off appearance. Also, that old adage about how the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree? That is definitely the case with the Sylvester women.

You get the idea where Sue got her temperament from. This mother makes Sue Sylvester look like Mother Teresa.

Burnett also gave some background information on why she and Jane Lynch will be singing “Ohio”.

My husband and I were having dinner and he said, “Why don’t you do ‘Ohio,’ since your character’s coming back to [the show’s setting of] Ohio? You could sing, ‘Why, oh why, oh why, oh did I ever leave Ohio?'” I talked to [Glee co-creator] Ryan Murphy and nobody [at the show] knew the song because they’re all so young. I said, “Listen to it and see what you think.” They thought it was great. It’s funny, [later] they called my assistant and said, “We’re going to send over the music. We don’t know if Miss Burnett knows this song or not.” [Laughs]

Unfortunately, Doris Sylvester will only be interacting with her daughter in the November 23 episode of Glee, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see her with other characters when she returns. Even she doesn’t know many details about that at this point. But she has nothing but praise for working with Jane Lynch:

I love locking eyeballs with her because she is a consummate comedian. She knows exactly how to say it and whether or not it will land and it does every time. And Jane can really sing. In this duet she does the harmony, so it doesn’t show off her voice the way it should. But I think they should give her major singing [scenes] because she’s really musical.

I think bringing in Carol Burnett as a Sylvester is brilliant casting, so you should definitely tune into the November 23 episode of Glee to see her.

If you missed it on Friday, make sure to take a look at the terrific sneak peek we posted o fthe Dalton Academy glee club singing “Teenage Dream” and a first look at Gwyneth Paltrow’s appearance on the November 16 episode of Glee.
