Glee First Looks: Darren Criss! Gwyneth Paltrow!

by at . Comments

After only airing one episode in the past three weeks, Glee returns for the rest of November with a vengeance. Or at least with a pair of major guest stars.

First, Darren Criss debuts this Tuesday as Blaine, a student at a different school who many believe will become Kurt's boyfriend. The actor will only say that his character will serve as a mentor for William McKinley's only openly gay student.

But Kurt appears instantly smitten with him when they first meet, as depicted below. Watch the pair interact and Criss take on a Katy Perry hit now, courtesy of the episode "Never Been Kissed."

A week later, on November 16, Gwyneth Paltrow will come on board as a substitute teacher. Check out two photos from her guest-starring gig, as first posted by E! News. Looks like someone will be singing in the rain...

Wish they'd got someone like Tina Arena who has an awesome voice (seriously Lea's voice reminds me of hers, and she's also a stage alumni, check her out if you've never heard of her) instead of just going for a big name (probably for the sake of it, like Britney Spears), I don't think Gwyneth is much cop (she's a lousy actress, always looks insincere, like she's about to laugh), can't stand her.
