Fox’s "Glee" is pulling out all the stops for May sweeps, as it has managed to wrangle in a guest appearance from a star of a rival network.
CBS is allowing the star of "How I Met Your Mother," Neil Patrick Harris, to appear in a guest role on "Glee," according to Entertainment Weekly.
The show will be broadcast during May sweeps and will cast Harris as a former show choir singer who returns to McKinley High as a school board member out to cut the glee club.
The episode will include flashbacks and will culminate with Harris’ character taking on Mr. Schu. Joss Whedon, of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fame, will direct the episode.
