Glee Considers Another Major Guest Star

at .

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.

Glee Quotes

I'm a closet lesbian and a judgmental bitch, which means one thing. I have awesome gaydar.

Santana

Thank you so much, it really is a pleasure. While the boys chose a selection of songs that casts an eye inward on the irresponsible life choices and sexual hunger of today's modern teens we have chosen a selection of songs that speaks of the nation as a whole during these troubling times filled with economic uncertainty and unbridled social woes, because if there's two things America needs right now, that is sunshine and optimism! Also angels.
