Whoopi Goldberg is joining Glee! Reports are indicating that Whoopi has signed on to appear in around three episodes. She’ll be having a hand in the future of Kurt and Rachel as she’s playing a professor from NYADA. I feel like I should point out their no guest stars rule yet again but at this point…
Glee sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that the Oscar winning actress-turned-View master has signed on for an extremely pivotal multi-episode arc.
Goldberg will play Carmen Tibideaux, a theatrical grande dame and a professor at New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts (NYADA) who travels to Ohio to preside over Kurt and Rachel’s auditions — and apparently she sticks around long enough to deliver a verdict: I’m told she’ll appear in roughly three episodes, the first of which is set to air on May 1. (Glee‘s season finale is set for May 22.)
