Harry Shum JrThis is very good news for those Gleeks hoping our favorite neglected New Directions members will get a little more screen time during Season 3 of 'Glee': Entertainment Weekly reports that two actors have been cast as Mike Chang's parents.

Tamlyn Tomita ('The Joy Luck Club') and Keong Sim ('The Last Airbender') will play parents to newly minted series regular Harry Shum Jr. in the third episode of the new season, which is scheduled to air Oct. 3. Mike Chang gets a back story? Awesome!
