Glee’s favorite substitute teacher, Holly Holliday as played by Gwyneth Paltrow, will return to Glee for two episodes this spring, and her role promises to be hot! “There’s going to be lots of sex, singing and dancing,” Glee creator Ryan Murphy told us at the Fox Searchlight Golden Globes after-party. Paltrow’s character will play a sex education teacher who dates Mr. Schuester, played by Matthew Morrison. And there’s more: Anne Hathaway will play Kurt Hummel’s lesbian aunt, Kristin Chenoweth will be back as April Rhodes and the Glee kids will be covering tunes by Justin Beiber and Lady Gaga. The Golden Globe-winning show returns with new episodes February 6 on Fox.

Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t just become a country music singer overnight. The Oscar-winning actress (and Glee guest star) relied on her friends for pointers to perfect her role in Country Strong. “I was playing a bonafide superstar and that’s what kind of scared me the most,” our January cover girl told Good Morning America.” I thought, ‘How am I going to realistically pull this off?’ So I studied Beyonce to see how she performs and that kind of amazing confidence she has. I thought if I could just channel a little thimbleful of Beyonce’s confidence, then you know.” Catch Country Strong when it opens nationwide on Friday.
