Glee Considers Another Major Guest Star

by at . Comments

With Ricky Martin all but officially on board, Glee is now close to signing another major artist for another significant guest-starring role.

According to EW, Gloria Estefan is in talks to appear on an upcoming episode in the role of... Santana's mother!

Santana on Stage

On this week's episode of Glee, viewers watched as Santana revealed her sexuality to her grandmother, only to be heart-broken by her close relative's negative reaction.

Earlier in the hour, she simply told her friends that her parents were totally fine with it, but their on-screen absence was unusual and noticeable. Might that have been due to the show needing to wait until Estefan was free to shoot?

If all goes according to plan, the veteran artist will appear on the same January episode that also features Martin as a Spanish teacher.

@kay they said no guest stars for the first part of the season.

Personally, I would love to see Sara Ramirez, Callie from Grey's Anatomy, play Santana's mother. I absolutely love her as an actress and she has an incredible singing voice. She would have been my absolute first choice!

I'm not sure why they need Ricky Martin, but casting Gloria Estefan as Santana's mother makes sense as far as character development.

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.
