Whoopi Goldberg Joins 'Glee' For Multiple Episodes; Lindsay Lohan In Talks

Posted: Updated:
"Glee" confirms Whoopi Goldberg, but Lindsay Lohan may be guest starring too.

Whoopi Goldberg is coming to "Glee." "The View" co-host will appear in multiple episodes of the Fox series, according to TVLine. And Lindsay Lohan may not be far behind.

Goldberg will play Carmen Tibideaux, a professor at New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts -- Rachel and Kurt's coveted NYADA -- who comes to Ohio to oversee auditions. TVLine reports Goldberg will appear in three episodes of the series, the first of which is set to air Tues., May 1. Look for Goldberg's character to deliver the final verdict to Kurt and Rachel. But whether they get in to NYADA or not, Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) will appear in Season 4 of "Glee."

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed TVLine's casting report.

"Glee" star Michele took to Twitter to share her feelings on Goldberg's casting.

Goldberg, an EGOT recipient, recently filmed a guest role for ABC's "The Middle." Aside from her hosting duties on "The View," Goldberg has made guest appearances on numerous shows including "The Cleaner," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "Everybody Hates Chris." She starred in a self-titled sitcom from 2003-2004.

TVLine also reports Lindsay Lohan is in final talks to appear on "Glee." The actress, who recently mounted a career comeback with a "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig, would reportedly play herself on the musical comedy. If all goes according to plan, Lohan will appear as a celebrity judge at the glee club Nationals competition.

Other "Glee" Season 3 guest stars include NeNe Leakes, Ricky Martin, the voice of Helen Mirren, Jeff Goldblum and Idina Menzel. Upcoming guests include Matt Bomer and Gloria Estefan.
