Dashing the hopes and dreams of every snarky blond teen actress on the planet, 19 year old Colby Minifie has snagged the role of Young Sue Sylvester, and will make her Glee debut on this week's episode, "Mash Off."
In the Season 3 episode, we'll see a flashback to a 16-year-old version of the Cheerio’s coach performing in her high school's production of Oklahoma! Unfortunately, the show is panned by the school newspaper, and Sue shelves her Broadway dreams for good, thus breeding the sour, athletically driven, power-hungry Coach Sylvester of today.
Aside from the obligatory Law and Order ep, Colby hasn't done much in the film and TV world, but did understudy in the Broadway production of The Pillowman. But Jane Lynch has praised the Glee casting department for picking a perfect mini-her for the role. "I think they did a terrific job casting," she told TV Guide. "She has a great voice and energy."
Though we’re excited to see Young Sue in action, we’re not so sure the world is ready for TWO Sues.
