Which GLOW characters will return?
There's no GLOW without the wrestlers who made Season 1 work. Expect the core players from the original female-heavy ensemble -- Ruth (Brie), Debbie (Betty Gilpin), Cherry (Sydelle Noel), Carmen (Britney Young), Justine (Britt Baron), Arthie (Sunita Mani), Tammé (Kia Stevens), Melanie (Jackie Tohn), Sheila (Gayle Rankin), Rhonda (Kate Nash), Jenny (Ellen Wong), Reggie (Marianna Palka), and Dawn and Stacey (Rebekka Johnson and Kimmy Gatewood) -- to get back in the ring. Same with their fearless leader, Sam (Marc Maron).
Annabella Sciorra, Wyatt Nash, and Shakira Barrera will lend a hand
Or, will try. Deadline reports that Sciorra, the Emmy-nominated Sopranos alumna, landed a recurring role as Rosalie Biagi. (If that last name isn't familiar, she'll be playing the mother of Justine Biagi, the young goth who went by Scab and revealed herself to be Sam's illegitimate daughter.) Other notable newcomers include Dear White People's Nash (the show within the show's hunky new cameraman, Phil) and East Los High's Barrera (the ladies' newest recruit, "a Mexican-American dancer/stripper and out-and-proud lesbian").
Also, there are new babies?
Yeah, apparently. So say goodbye to the face you thought you knew as Randy, Debbie's newborn son. "We have two new twins this year, Kyler and Kaleb, [who play Randy]," Gilpin told TVLine. "They're amazing. They're nuanced and bringing a fresh new energy to things we do." Wow, we didn't know babies possessed Daniel Day-Lewis acting chops, but... OK!
