Now that Trouty Mouth (a.k.a. Sam) is being thrown back into the Glee waters, we get an excuse to meet his parents! With John Schneider (Smallville) already cast as Sam Evans’ (Chord Overstreet) dad, Glee has been on the casting lookout for a (blonde or brunette) actress to play the role of his mom too.

Entertainment Weekly reported yesterday just which actress got the part:

“Now that Chord Overstreet is reprising his role as Sam on the Fox drama, fans will be introduced to his mom Mary Evans, played by Tanya Clarke (Guiding Light). EW has learned exclusively that Clarke, who has also appeared on shows like The Defenders and NCIS: Los Angeles, will show up in the Dec. 6 episode and may recur.”

What storyline do you think we can expect out of Sam’s return, and what’s your take on the casting for his parents? Voice your opinions in the comments below!
