So far, what we know about Blake Jenner's new Glee character, Ryder Lynn is that he's a jock who'll be struggling with dyslexia, he'll be thrown into the McKinley glee club "by accident", and he'll have some scenes with Marley Rose (Melissa Benoist) and Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith).
But since he's a jock, does that mean what we think it means? Dot-Marie Jones, who plays Coach Shannon Beiste, confirms that she has worked with Blake on at least one scene that will be coming up soon.
"Blake I worked with on Episode 5, which will air on November 8th and we’re on
the football field."
Though Dot can't confirm if Beiste will be providing help to Ryder in other, non-football areas in the future - like his dyslexia. But hey, if Puck is any indication, Beiste is good at that kind of stuff.
