How many guest stars does one TV series need? Everybody and their mother (literally) wants a piece of the Fox musical “Glee” and Academy Award winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is no different. According to EOnline, she has her eye on the prize, which is a spot on the busy show roster which already includes the likes of Britney Spears! How will Gwen stack up?

According to sources close to the show, Paltrow will come on board as a potential love interest for Matthew Morrison’s character, Will Schuester. She’ll sing, dance, and act alongside the cast of triple threats this November as a substitute teacher who appears in two episodes. Hmmm, an Oscar winner guest starring on a TV show during sweeps, who would have thought (sarcasm)?

Apparently, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy is close friends with Paltrow and wrote the role specifically with her in mind. At this point, the actress just needs to agree to the terms and sign on the dotted line. No offense, but we’d rather see Chris Martin on the show. Has he appeared yet? If not, they need to get on that.

What do you think of Paltrow appearing on this season of Glee? Do you think she’ll do a good job?
