at . Comments

Over its first season, Glee featured a number of talented guest stars.

But there was one piece of hardware neither Neil Patrick Harris, Kristen Chenoweth or Olivia Newton-John could lay claim to: an Academy Award.

Enter Javier Bardem. The Best Supporting Actor winner (for No Country for Old Men) is likely to appear on season two of the show. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the actor said he wants to come aboard as a rock star who befriends Artie.

"We're going to rock the house," Bardem says in the magazine's latest issue. "We're going to do some heavy metal, Spanish heavy metal, which si the worst."

The actor, who stars in this summer's Eat, Pray, Love (directed by Glee creator Ryan Murphy) adds that he wached all of season one in a week. We can't blame him.

Glee Quotes

[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.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
