Mercedes isn’t the only girl that gets loved up in Glee 3, long after it’s due. Coach Beiste, McKinley High’s burly lay football coach will score herself a boyfriend. So that means we should get to see some more of the tough girl’s softer side.
Eric Bruskotter of 24 and Six Feet Under fame has been cast as Johnny, a regular role. He is a college football recruiter who comes to scout Coach Beiste’s team. Of course, he will never be able to resist the big-hearted lady coach with her piercing baby blues.
The word from those in the know is that he falls head over heels for Coach Beiste.
Dot-Marie Jones, who plays Coach Beiste, is reportedly very excited about her upcoming storyline. Her character has never been kissed, since the pity peck from Schue last season really, really doesn’t count. So her storylines are set to get a whole lot more romantic when Eric Bruskotte hits our screens, some time in November.
When she was told of Eric Bruskotte as Johnny, her new love interest, she was reportedly thrilled.
“Oh my God… I’ll have to talk to Ryan Murphy about that!” she beamed.
So, are you as excited as Dot-Marie Jones to see Coach Beiste get a love interest? Any chance that some lovin’ will soften up her locker room talks?
