Gwyneth Paltrow Returning to 'Glee'
Gwyneth Paltrow and "Glee's" matchup was so nice, they've decided to do it twice. The Oscar-winning actress has confirmed that she'll appear on a second episode of the Fox show, reports Access Hollywood, who caught up with Paltrow during a press junket for her upcoming film, "Country Strong."
"I'm going to do one more [episode]," Paltrow said, though she wouldn't say exactly when it would air or be filmed. "I signed up for two… so I'm excited!"
Paltrow first made a splash on "Glee" by playing a extra-lenient substitute teacher on the Nov. 16 episode, aptly titled "The Substitute." The actress performed Cee Lo Green's "Forget You" and a mash-up of Rihanna's "Umbrella" with the classic "Singin' in the Rain." Both tracks graced the Billboard Hot 100 the following week, with "Forget You" debuting at No. 11 and "Umbrella/Singin' in the Rain" landing at No. 18 on the chart dated Dec. 4. The episode itself was up 7% from the previous week in the ratings.
When asked what the best part of being on "Glee" was, Paltrow said, "Just the incredible challenge of getting off a plane, going to record four songs immediately in one afternoon, and then having to learn all the dance numbers in like 20 minutes...I love Ryan Murphy, he's an old friend of mine and I was just in awe of everybody's talent and getting to work with Jane Lynch and Matt Morrison is so adorable and all the kids - it was just great. It was really fun."
