Although her husband Chris Martin doesn't much like Glee, Gwyneth Paltrow has agreed to guest star on the show as a substitute teacher.
The Oscar-winning actress will replace Matthew Morrison's character Will Schuester in two episodes when he chucks a sickie.
She'll lead the singing group, which could well sing a Coldplay song now that the band has relented after months of refusals to grant access to its catalogue.
The band had been holding out because it didn't think the show was very cool, but gave in with an apology to the series creator in June.
While the casting choice does sound a bit random, Gwyneth has actually appeared in musical type shows before - in her latest flick Country Song she plays a country singer.
