Glee Exclusive: Lindsay Lohan to Play [Spoiler]

Get More: Casting News, Exclusive

Lindsay Lohan GleeGlee  is going Lindsane.

The Fox hit has finalized a deal with Lindsay Lohan to guest star in one of this season’s final episodes, TVLine has learned exclusively. What’s more, she’ll be tacklinga role she was born to play: herself!

An insider at the Fox hit confirms that the movie star-turned-tabloid queen — once famously the butt of a joke on the show — will serve as a celebrity judge at Nationals. Although there’s no word yet as to who might be joining Lohan on the panel, past judges for the annual season-ending competition have included Josh Groban and Olivia Newton-John.

The Glee gig marks the latest leg of the troubled actress’ Hollywood comeback, which got underway last month when she hosted Saturday Night Live. Her last scripted TV gig was a 2008 arc on Ugly Betty. She’s currently in talks to play acting legend Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime biopic.

  • Expect another awkward performance from Lohan. That whole SNL episode just felt awkward and uncomfortable.

  • Gross! This show has gone down hill and judging by the ratings many people agree with me. First they have that train wreck from The Real Housewives on the show to play and horrible acted coach and now Lindsay. Whose next Kim Kardashian? I knew this show would go down in flames the way The O.C. did. Huge hit in the first two season then it crashed and burn getting canceled before season 5.

  • DID SOMEONE SAY REGIONALS?! #sixseasonsandamovie

    • Oh, regionals. I realize the stakes aren’t actually that high, but somehow that makes things extra scary.

  • She looks awful. She looks like Joan Rivers. When will celebrities learn that plastic surgery does not make them look younger, it makes them look like worse.

  • Ewww, Glee.

    But I do like hearing Josh Groban is coming back. I hear throngs of screaming teenagers don’t do it for Josh Groban. I hear Josh Groban loves a blousy alcoholic.

  • So normally I don’t mind talented guest stars on Glee: Matt Bomer, Idina Menzel, Kristen Chenowith, Gwyneth, etc. But this is just getting ridiculous and stupid.

    Comment by A – March 27, 2012 10:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Hahaha!!! SO basically everybody but lindsay right? Or who else was not up to your standards? Neil Patrick Harris, John Stamos? Honestly “A” thats retarded. She wont even get many lines, and she”ll probably never be on the show again.

  • I can’t believe Glee is giving this total LOSER a minute of their time. This show is now so far past pathetic it’s actually making me angry. Ryan Murphy and Marti Noxon should be run out of Paramount on rail. She ruined Buffy….so I guess I really should not be surprised.

  • I’m sorry for what’s ahead but I can’t keep this in anymore….
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
    Seriously what is up with Hollywood and giving this…. thing(??) TV airtime??? First SNL and now Glee!

  • Did you look at that picture?? It doesn’t even look like her! She looks like a 70 year old woman who’s had too much plastic surgery!!
    Maybe she should be placed under conservatorship with Britney Spears’ dad, seemed to help Britney. And Lindsay’s dad doesn’t seem up to the challenge!

  • you know what, if she wants to be a bitch and insult Jayma for reading a line FROM HER SCRIPT, she doesn’t deserve to be on this show. i know it probably won’t be a big part, but just the thought of her associated with the amazingness that is Glee kind of makes me want to stab my own eyeballs.

  • I’m kind of thinking that ryan Murphy is putting her on as a joke. I mean, we all know that he hates Lindsey and thinks that she’s pathetic

  • I can’t say that I’m thrilled about Lindsay Lohan being on but I’m not going to stop watching a show that I enjoy…Any true fan enjoys the good parts, ignores the bad parts and stays loyal…

  • i’m sorry but everyone’s over reacting it’s just Lindsay Lohan being a judge! Who knows maybe they’ll make her look bad, i think all she cares about is the screen time she’ll have! And personally the first 2 seasons were just eh… but now i think they started telling stories rather than making music and having a general story for the whole season… 3rd season we had mike with his singing, finn&rachel getting married, will proposing to emma… and all the guest starts like paltrow and ricky were just the salt and pepper of the show bringing in some flavour. Plus if you hate the main cast why watch the show?!

  • It’s not the end of the world – there was a time that people paid to see her movies and they were actually okay shows.
    She’s made a whole bunch of bad personal choices that got played out by the media. Who hasn’t. We just don’t have TMZ hiding in a bush every time we make a move so that others can live through us or judge. Let her be and have her “comeback”
    Although, I didn’t recognize her as Lindsay Lohan in the pic. Has she had work done? Is she eating again? She’s really ……. blonde

  • Her “Hollywood reappearance” on SNL? Hardly. She was reading her lines from a teleprompter. >.>

  • OK, I love Glee, but we can have Lindsay, or if we get desperate, pull Bobby Brown out of the unemployment line and give him a gig. Like everyone has said already, she’ll be given a couple lines, and Sue will step in and announce the winners! Then on to the next episode! Enjoy, I know I will!

  • I don’t care if she is in it as long Quinn is ok xx

    • Quinn is okay, shes alive but is now wheelchair bound, and Artie helps her deal with it :) But you shouldnt judge lindsay being on the show just as long as quinns in it lol.

  • Holy Cow you hypocrites! All of you! In every other tv show when they announce a guest star everyone and their mother gets excited. But on Glee its not allowed why??? I think some of Glees best episodes have been with a guest star, Like the Olivia Newton-John music video with Sue. That was epic! And probably a career highlight for both actresses. Yeah sometimes it gets a little much, but all in all Glee is a very well done show. The tributes are awesome because i love to see how they perform other people that are so huge. If you watch Glee and no nothing of music or television then shut your flippin mouths! Furthermore if you “hate” Glee so much then why the fudge do you watch it? Just so you can criticze it on boards like this? Frankly your all pretty pathetic.

  • Oh and furthermore, Lindsay Lohan yeah is troubled, but people put way too much pressure on the celebs and sometimes they crack. Sometimes they can over come it like Nicole Richie did after she had her baby, and sometimes they cant. I hope Lindsay all the best and hope she figures out her path soon. She will be fine on Glee, if she gets more than 4 lines anyway. Get over it, and if you dont wannt watch her, well then dont tune into that episode. P.S. Lindsays face looks weird because se got plastic surgery and they screwed it up! And she has always looked better as a redhead.

  • Oh people! Don’t worry about this episode so much! For those people who don’t like Glee and are commenting just take it as an opportunity to watch Lindsey Lohan and the producers of Glee to embarrass themselves in national television! Me for one, am looking forward to this episode. Oh Glee, you really don’t know where to stop! Btw, Linsey Lohan disgusts me. The only place she should go, is a mental institution

  • Ew at some of the people in this post

    I’m happy for Lindsay. I haven’t watched Glee since the first season but I’ll be watching for Lindsay

  • Ok, you peeps are so meeaaan! Poor Lindse! I mean yeah, she might have made one or two mistakes according to some of you, but who doesn’t make mistakes. I’ve always LOVED Linsey, she’s been a role model for me since always! I think she represents all the good there is in Hollywood! And I’ve already marked my calendar to watch the episode! Its like Lindsay said in one of her movies: “there’s no small parts, just small actors”. I know she will do amazing as a judge. The rest of you are just jealous witches

  • Ok, “gleek#1″. You’re stupid. Lindsey Lohan sucks. And what do you mean with ” she might have made one or two mistakes according to some of you”??? She HAS made mistakes!! Its not a matter of opinion!! If you don’t like what people have to say just don’t read it.
