Lindsay Lohan Nabs 'Glee' Role

27 March 2012
Lindsay Lohan is confirmed to make an appearance on "Glee." The announcement comes in a wave of casting news for the hit Fox comedy, which includes a spot for comedian and talk-show host Whoopi Goldberg.

A rep for Lohan confirmed the casting to E! News. In a May episode of the show, Lohan is rumored to be onboard to play herself as a judge at Nationals.

Lindsay's mother, Dina, once took issue with "Glee" for poking fun at her after the show included a scene in which Katie Couric informed Jane Lynch's character, Sue Sylvester, that she beat out Dina and her dog Sparky to make the list of the "world's biggest losers." Dina had said, "It's a shame as the dance numbers are amazing, but the writers need to be nice and more creative as opposed to being hurtful."

Lohan has recently been making strides to get back into the acting spotlight. She hosted "Saturday Night Live" this season and is in talks to play the late Elizabeth Taylor in a small-screen biopic.

As for Goldberg, she'll be in three episodes in May, playing a New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts professor (Carmen Tibideaux) who travels to Ohio to meet with Kurt and Rachel about possible acceptance into the school.

In other "Glee" news, rumor has it One Direction might be following in the Wanted's footsteps, getting covered on the show.

Matthew Morrison reportedly told The Sun that the cast will be covering the boy band's single "What Makes You Beautiful."

"I've just heard of them, they're really taking over the States," Morrison said. "We are covering one of their songs on 'Glee': 'What Makes You Beautiful.' I need to YouTube it to practice."

A rep for the band hadn't responded to MTV News' request for confirmation by press time.
