'Is Mike Chang an orphan?' Gleeks the world over may have caught themselves wondering at some point. No, friends, Mike Chang is not an orphan. And to prove that fact, show creator Ryan Murphy and the rest of the suits at Glee decided to (finally) introduce us to the parents of this remarkably well-adjusted, Tina-loving dancing teen.
Meet Mama and Papa Chang: Tamlyn Tomita (The Joy Luck Club) and Keong Sim (The Last Airbender).
No character names yet, but the pair will appear in Season 3’s third episode (airing October 4th), Entertainment Weekly reports, following through on Murphy's commitment to flesh out some of the peripheral characters on the show. Frankly, we’re grateful, considering we’ve merely scratched the (rock hard, 6-pack-ab’d) surface of Harry Shum Jr.’s character in two seasons.
Stay tuned September 20th for the Glee Season 3 premiere.
