As previously reported, Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow has been in talks for a guest spot on Fox’s hit musical series "Glee." Now her appearance has been confirmed, and she is expected to sing at least three songs, possibly four, reports US Magazine.
Co-creator Ryan Murphy confirmed that Paltrow has been cast for a stint as a substitute teacher at McKinley High, and that they’ve arranged for her to sing three or four solos.
Her character also attracts romantic interest from Mr. Schuester, Matthew Morrison’s character.
Murphy directed Paltrow in the feature film "Running with Scissors," and it was that relationship–and her love for the TV show–that led to her going "Glee."
"She is a friend of mine and I admire her,” Murphy said. “I said, ‘If I write a part for you, will you do it?’ And she said, ‘Yes!’"
