Helen Mirren to Sort of Guest Star on Glee

Give Glee credit for guest star diversity...

Following the announcement that Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member NeNe Leakes will appear on the Fox hit next month as a synchronized swimming coach, TV Line now confirms that an Oscar winner will also make a cameo on the January 17 episode. Sort of.

Look for Helen Mirren to provide the “inner voice” of an unknown character, network sources say. She will be responsible for a few "long and hilarious monologues" at various points in the installment.

Whose thoughts could possibly be relayed by the voice of an older British woman? No student or teacher comes to mind, that's for certain.

Elsewhere, it's now also been confirmed that Ricky Martin will guest star on an early 2012 episode. The singer will portray a Spanish teacher.

Glee Quotes

I had sex with you because you got me drunk on wine coolers and I felt fat that day. But it was a mistake.

Quinn [to Puck]

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?
