Good news and bad news, Gleeks. The good news is that star Mike O’Malley (Burt Hummel) is getting a new pilot on Fox. He’s been cast as the dad in Family Album, a sitcom about a family going on vacation, with each season telling the story of a separate trip. Ambitious! But what does this mean for Glee?
While Burt hasn’t appeared much very lately, he’s still a key component to the Kurt storyline. If the show gets picked up, Mike will certainly be busy — but Fox will allow him to work on both series at once. So fear not, Burt Hummel fans! Your favorite TV dad will still have some presence on Glee.
