Sam Who? Glee Finds Mercedes a New Man

by at . Comments

Sorry, Sam. You've given Mercedes no choice but to move on.

With the confirmation that Chord Overstreet will not return to Glee next season, the show has been forced to scrap the Sam/Mercedes romance it teased on the season two finale and bring on board a new love interest for Amber Riley's character:

A William McKinley linebacker named Marcus. According to Fox sources, he'll be played by former Friday Night Lights recurring player, LaMarcus Tinker. Can you guess which one he is in the picture below?

Some other sites are saying the character has been renamed 'Marcus'.


it cant be the guy from nine lives of chloe king can it? ( ithink thats the guy anyways)


I don't like the racial stereotyping. As soon as they announced he'd be called 'Bubba' I was like "they're going to be really unoriginal and cast an overweight, black guy". I hope he's a lovely character (she deserves it), even if it is really cliché.


I'm glad that Mercedes will have a new boyfriend, although I'm still kinda disappointed since I got my hopes up for Sam/Mercedes in the season 2 finale. I still hope that the show is going to give a decent explanation for Sam's absence, and I would like to now how Mercedes and this new guy got together.


Omg!! It's Kevin from Cougar Town!!! Awesome!!!


please be the middle guy, he's HOT


Oh come on guys this is a good thing. She needs a story line. Rachel, finn and kurt cant get all the main character focus, give other characters a chance to shine. Besides she is the most talented female on the show and has the best voice,why should she stay in the background. The same goes to artie.


don't like :(


I find this casting a bit annoying and quite cliche. Sam to Bubba. huh?
