Javier Bardem To Rock Out On Glee

Javier Bardem is expected to appear on the second season of Glee, following in the footsteps of celebrity guest stars Neil Patrick Harris, Kristin Chenoweth and Josh Groban, according to Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello. Bardem reportedly pitched the idea to Glee creator Ryan Murphy, his director on the upcoming Eat Pray Love. Though the thought of Bardem playing one of Rachel Berry’s dads (paired with Hugh Jackman perhaps?) has us salivating like Mr. Schuester in the hair product aisle, the Oscar winner will instead be taking on the role of a rock star who befriends wheelchair-bound Artie. “We’re going to rock the house,” said Bardem, who claims to have watched the entire first season of Glee in a week, “We’re going to do some heavy metal — Spanish heavy metal, which is the worst.” [Ausiello Files/EW]
