LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- U.S. comic actress Molly Shannon has landed a recurring role on the musical high school-themed dramedy series "Glee," EW.com said.

The former "Saturday Night Live" and "Kath & Kim" star reportedly is expected to play a new astronomy teacher and badminton coach, who also happens to be an alcoholic and prescription drug user.

"She becomes Sue's enemy," a "Glee" insider told EW.com, referring to Jane Lynch's bossy, manipulative cheerleader coach character Sue Sylvester.

Shannon's first episode is to air in May, the entertainment news Web site said.
