After months of speculation, Glee creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed that the Scottish Sensation that's sweeping the nation, Susan Boyle, will be making an appearance on the smash series' very special Christmas episode!
And apparently, Kurt will be giving her a make-over.
BARF. Of course Kurt is giving her a make-over.
“Susan is on the same label as us and is a fan of the show. She’s coming out with a Christmas album, so the story I want to do in our Christmas episode is to have Kurt give her some sort of fantastic makeover and have her sing a song that’s from her album on the show.”
He also is still unsure on how the eff he's going to throw Javier Bardem into the mix. You know, probably because there's no seamless way to throw this many giant names in as guest stars without compromising the integrity of the story.
“He requested it. I think he bought the first 13 episodes on DVD and became obsessed with it. He said it was like crack. And he’s such a ham that it totally makes sense to me that he would want to sing and dance. I think he’s going to play some demented Spanish rock star substitute teacher something, but I don’t know — we haven’t figured that out yet.”
However, we ARE excited to find out yet more details about the Brit Brit episode, as well as the upcoming Rocky Horror Tribute airing around Halloween!
And best yet?! Jonathan Groff will be back for two episodes in the Spring!
“She is arguably the most important female, other than Lady GaGa, of the last ten years. Many of the kids on the show went into singing and dancing because of her. Also at the heart of it, it’s a show designed to show off the skills of Heather Morris, who plays [Glee's cheerleader] Brittany. I just think that Britney Spears loves what the show is about, that the show’s about paying tribute to pop culture in a very loving, respectful, kind way. She responded to that.”
On Rocky Horror:
“My favorite thing to do is to torture the boys and claim that I don’t know who’s wearing those gold lamé briefs, because now they’re all on diets. They’re all in terror that I’m going to tell them that they’re the one who has to get naked.”
Yum! Well, maybe the show hasn't COMPLETELY jumped the shark!
And let's hope that our beloved Puck gets to wear the gold undies!
