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

Rachel: This is what I wanted!
Sam: No, what you wanted was a second chance to get it right and Carmen just gave it to you. If you throw all that away you're going to be making the same mistake all over again

Finn: I seem to recall a rumor about a certain cheerleading coach at this school who once took horse estrogen and posed for Penthouse back in the day. So maybe I can just track that down and make a few copies and sell those to raise money for Regionals.
Sue: That's nothing but a rumor. But if that rumor were true, my Penthouse centerfold so groundbreaking that it completely redefined the term 'hirsute,' and gave birth unto these United States a pose so limber they named it the Regal American Not-So-Bald Spread Eagle, I promise you, my friend, you would never find it.
