An Academy Award-winning actor recently asked "Glee" showrunner if he could guest star in an episode next season, and the answer was a resounding yes, reports Michael Ausiello on his EW.com blog.
Oscar-winner Javier Bardem ("No Country for Old Men") is slated to appear on the next season of "Glee" as a rock star who becomes friends with Artie, according to the report.
Bardem approached "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy with the idea, the story says. The actor became a fan of the show after watching the entire first season in a single week. “We’re going to do some heavy metal — Spanish heavy metal, which is the worst," Bardem told Ausiello.
