Michael Ausiello reports Lindsay Lohan will make a guest cameo on Glee as herself, appearing as one of the celebrity guest judges for nationals—past self-playing, and ultimately self-parodying stars who have filled this seat include Josh Groban and Olivia Newton-John. Whoopi Goldberg will also appear towards season's end as Carmen Tibideaux, a stage vet and professor at the presitigious Not-Juilliard Kurt and Rachel are trying to attend, and will preside over their auditions. Regular guest star Jonathan Groff, who plays pretty-boy show choir has-been Jesse St. James, will also make another appearance as the season-ending nationals competition looms.
This has already been a guest-star-packed season of the show about show choir, with notable appearances including Ricky Martin as an oh-so-charming Spanish teacher (whose "La Isla Bonita" duet with Naya Rivera was the lone bright spot of one of the series' worst—and most culturally insensitive—episodes of all time), NeNe Leakes as a synchronized swimming coach, Dame Helen Mirren as Becky's inner monologue and best of all, Rachel's dads, played by Brian Stokes Mitchell and guest star extraordinaire Jeff Goldblum (which, as Vulture pointed out, makes Rachel Berry and Ruxin from The League long-lost TV siblings?). Also, wasn't Anne Hathaway supposed to appear on the show as Kurt's aunt? What happened with that? Continuity hasn't exactly ever been a strong point with Glee, but oh well.
