Scoop on Glee: Coach BeisteSunday, September 18, 2011
Dot-Marie Jones has been sporting a cane since she broke her foot six weeks ago, but thankfully the show's writers have been sympathetic to her injury. "They wrote it into the third episode," she said. "The first two episodes, by luck, I was sitting down." While Coach Beiste is spending her time co-directing the school musical on Glee from a seated position, walking around in real life has aggravated the injury — a recent doctor's appointment showed that Jones' fractured fifth metatarsal is now worse than it was right after she hurt it. "It's broken completely in half," said Jones, who jokingly added, "I said, 'I'll just have an extra bone.' They'll probably put me in books!"
