Meet Sam's dad.

We already know Chord Overstreet is returning to Glee as Sam and now it seems we’ll get to meet his father. Per TVLine, John Schneider has been tapped to play Sam’s dad, whose employment situation, as we learned in the first episode of season 3, forced Sam to transfer out of McKinley High. He is only set to appear in one episode so far, which will be Chord’s first episode back.

Perhaps best known for his role as Bo Duke on the "The Dukes of Hazard," Schneider has, among other things, also starred as Jonathan Kent on "Smallville" and porn king Ram Peters on Ryan Murphy's "Nip/Tuck." Are you looking forward to John's "Glee" debut?
