With dozens of star-studded guest appearances already under their belt, the producers of Glee are adding one more name to their celebrity laundry list: Lindsay Lohan, but the starlet is looking for more good news this week with her final probation report set for Thursday.
According to TMZ, Lohan’s latest run-in, a report that she grazed a man’s knee as she drove away from paparazzi outside a Los Angeles hookah bar will be discussed at the hearing, but believe it will not affect the overall positive feedback expected from Judge Stephanie Saunter. No charges were filed after the March 14 incident.
The newest guest spot comes after Lohan’s return to television on an episode of Saturday Night Live earlier this month that received less than rave reviews.
A representative for Lohan said she is set to appear on the hit show before the end of the season, however, did not want to confirm details about the role she will play or the plot of the episode after information about the appearance leaked earlier this afternoon. E! Online reported Lohan will play herself, appearing as a judge for Nationals in one of the final episodes of the season.
The appearance may come as a surprise for many Gleeks after Lohan bore the brunt of many jokes on previous episodes of the Fox series, but Steve Honig, Lohan’s publicist, said she is looking forward to the role.
“Lindsay loves the show. She thinks the cast is incredibly talented, and is excited to become part of the show,” Honig said.
Other projects in the works for the actress include a Lifetime made-for-TV movie about the life of Elizabeth Taylor. The film, titled “Liz and Dick,” will star Lohan as Taylor and is set to begin filming in May in Vancouver.
“Lindsey is excited to be back at work, and is looking forward to the next chapter in her life,” Honig said.
Previous guest stars on the series include Gwyneth Paltrow, Josh Groban, Kristin Chenoweth, and Neil Patrick Harris.
