'Glee' Exclusive: Susan Boyle to play the McKinley High lunch lady?
Glee has already had some phenomenal guest-stars so far, including Josh Groban, Kristin Chenoweth, and, last night, Neil Patrick Harris. Now, EW has learned a certain music (and YouTube) sensation may be appearing on the hit Fox series in a season two Christmas episode: Susan Boyle. The Britain’s Got Talent runner-up is conveniently on the same record label, Columbia, as the Glee cast. And who would Boyle play? “I have two words for you: Lunch. Lady,” says Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy. “I think Kurt would just die to give her a Christmas makeover. I don’t even know if she’s interested but it’s been pitched.” Besides the potential Boyle guest spot, Murphy also tells EW that there are plans for the cast to release a Christmas album as well (Rob Stringer, Columbia/Epic’s chairman, wouldn’t confirm the Boyle or Christmas album details but did say, “All very interesting ideas. I’ll bring them up at the next development meeting.”).
What do you think about Boyle possibly appearing on Glee, Music Mix-ers? Is that a dream collaboration? Or a disaster pairing?
