(Newser) – Carol Burnett will join the cast of Glee as the mother of Sue Sylvester, Entertainment Weekly reports. Jane Lynch's character has made passing reference to her Nazi-hunting mom in previous episodes, but other details are being kept secret until Burnett's first appearance in October or November. "This is so utterly perfect, I’m shocked we didn’t think of it first," writes Michael Ausiello of EW. (Susan Boyle is aboard, too. Read here.)
