Apparently is all about the moms on TV today considering that earlier today I posted about who had just been cast as Gloria’s mom on Modern Family. Now I just came across casting news from TV Line for Glee and learned who has been cast as Jake’s mom on.
The handsome Jacob Artist plays McKinley’s newest bad boy Jake and as such is definitely in need of some parental guidance. As you know, Jake is the half brother of Puck (Mark Salling) who has a different mother (Gina Hecht) that has occasionally guest starred on the show. No word on if the Jake and Puck’s mothers will be in the same episode.
The woman cast as Jake’s mom is both an actress and a daytime talk show host and I think this sexy lady will be great in this role.
Jake’s mother will be played by none other than The Talk‘s Aisha Tyler. The actress also is voice behind ISIS agent Lana Kane on FX’s Archer.
