With Smash making me feel less insecure about watching a musical TV series, since it’s much more mature and adult-oriented, I’ve basically only given Glee a small amount of attention and not much thought. However, some new guest stars should make for an interesting turn this season. TV Line has two different reports that reveal both Whoopi Goldberg and Lindsay Lohan will show up on the series before the third season ends. If you don’t want to know any details about their characters, do not continue reading after the jump.
While Lohan will merely have a guest spot on the final episode as a celebrity judge at Nationals (joining previous names like Josh Groban and Olivia Newton-John), Goldberg’s role is actually more integral to the series. The regular on The View will actually be in multiple episodes as Carmen Tibideaux, a theatrical grande dame and a professor at New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts (NYADA) who travels to Ohio to preside over Kurt and Rachel’s auditions and will be around to let each of them know how their academic future will turn out. Could make for some fun to round out the season, but with characters leaving and an increasingly frustrating decline in the quality of writing, I think I might be done after this. We’ll see what happens.
