According to TVLine, the singer has signed on to guest star as a sexy Spanish teacher for one episode of the Fox musical. An insider tells TVLine that Martin’s character is “the hottest Spanish teacher ever in the history of Ohio.”
Naturally, Martin will sing two numbers in the January episode.
One thing to remember: Though Mr. Schue is consumed with glee club, he’s ostensibly supposed to be the McKinley High Spanish teacher. Wonder what the circumstances of Martin’s arrival will be? (And let’s hope they don’t cover any Ricky Martin classics during this episode — later, sure, but it would be too much in one episode.)
In other “Glee” news, TVLine also dug up some scoop on the return of Chord Overstreet as Sam Evans. Apparently, Sam joins the synchronized swim team in his quest to win back Mercedes. He’ll start his new pursuit in January, when we’ll also meet the swim coach, Roz Washington (for which the show is seeking a “well-known comedic character actress in her 30s or 40s”), and three team members named Webber (“a nerdy-looking girl”), Charles (“a handsome African-American boy”) and Vinny (“a nerdy-looking boy”).
What do you think about these new developments?
