Glee Casting: Gina Gershon Cast as Blaine’s Mom


Ahead of any official announcement, Glee executive producer, and co-creator, Brad Falchuk spilled to a fan on twitter last night that Gina Gershon has been cast as Blaine’s (Darren Criss) mother.

You may remember Gina from the movies Showgirls and Cocktail, or perhaps her recurring TV roles on Melrose Place, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Rescue Me. According to the  casting spoilers, the character’s name is Pam Anderson (GET IT?) and earns a living selling  Mary Kay cosmetics.

The actress was on set this week filming scenes for Episode 8, titled “A Wedding,” which should tell you something right there. Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine are rumored to be tying the knot before the sixth and final season of Glee ends in March.
