Season two of Glee will be bringing back fan favorites in full force: that means more Gaga and Gwyn! Gwyneth Paltrow will reprise her role as Holly Holiday, and Lady Gaga has already given the show permission to cover her unreleased single “Born This Way.”
Holly Holiday will grace two more episodes with a seriously amped up role…as Mr. Schuester’s love interest!
Co-creator Ryan Murphy gave the scoop: “Gwyneth is coming back for two episodes. She’s coming back specifically to date Will [Matthew Morrison]. Those two have become really good friends in real life and had really good chemistry. She’s coming back as a sex education teacher. Gwyneth and I are emailing, talking every week: What are we gonna sing? We’re trying to do something fantastic. So she’ll be [in episodes] 15 and 16. She comes back [to film] in January and she’s with us for three and a half weeks I think.”
Awesome! And what of Gaga? The song will be used in March or April and center around Karofsky (Max Adler).
“I love that that song is anthem,” says Murphy of “Born This Way.” “This show is by nature optimistic and I think a character like Karofsky could turn to booze or pills or alcohol and kill themselves or do something dark. But I also love Max and I love that character and I sorta want that character to have a happy ending. So I don’t really know what that’s going to be, but I do know we’re going to do a whole episode that’s about that song.”
