Josh Groban to Portray "Absolute Jerk" on Glee

by at . Comments

Based on what we've seen of Glee, the show doesn't need any guest-starring stunts to reel in viewers this fall.

But this sounds intriguing:

Hit singer Josh Groban will make a cameo on the series. According to the star, he'll play a version of himself on the show that is an “absolute jerk.”

That's all we can report for now, but considering the down-to-earth, humble persona Grobin has established for himself, we can't wait to find out what this entails.

Josh is very good at taking a rise out of himself. People in the UK cringed when they heard he'd be appearing on Never mind the Buzzcocks programme. A lot of people thought they would eat him alive on that show - but Josh beat them at their own game! A lot of people thought he was the best guest they'd ever had on the show and he doesn't mind acting the fool at all - it just shows how comedic he really is and how much he enjoys it.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
