What does Glee's new season have in store for its newly minted Emmy-nominee, Dot Marie Jones?
"I know nothing!" confessed Jones, who is apparently still in the dark for season four of the FOX series. One thing she can say for sure is she'll definitely be a part of the show after most of McKinley High's class of 2012 moves on to bigger and better things.
"I'm not in the first two episodes," she reveals, "but I know Ryan [Murphy] said … I'll definitely be back."
Recently, Dot Marie's turn as McKinley High's coach Beiste caught the eye of the folks at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, earning the star her first-ever Emmy nod on July 19. While excited for the honor, she was quick to credit the show's creator who, among other things, supplied her with the opportunity to showcase her talents.
"It's the best job in the world," said Jones with pride. "I worked my butt off for the last twenty-one years and I've worked with Ryan [Murphy] since 'Nip Tuck'… This is like the brass ring. 'Glee' is like the brass ring. I'm very proud of all the jobs I've done over the years, don't get me wrong, but I feel so proud to be a part of something that means something."
