Glee is staging another Nip/Tuck reunion.

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the Fox hit has enlisted Smallville's John Schneider to play father to Chord Overstreet's Sam, as first reported by TV Line.

Schneider will appear in the eighth episode of the Fox hit's third season, which will also mark Overstreet's first appearance since the actor parted ways with the series last season after seeing co-stars Darren Criss (Blaine) and Harry Shum Jr. (Mike) promoted to series regulars.
