Ricky Martin tweeted a sneak peek of his upcoming episode of Glee. Our February cover model took a photo of himself with the cast with the caption, “First day!! :o)”
The 40 year-old Puerto Rican singer/actor will play a musically-talented Spanish teacher in the FOX musical-comedy series and will headline two musical numbers in the episode he is slated to guest star in.
He also tweeted, “I hear McKinley high has an opening for a Spanish teacher…Maybe I’ll apply” addressing rumors that he would be appearing on the show.
Lea Michele, who has known Martin since she was much younger from working with him on a production of Les Miserables, was excited to have him on set. She tweeted, “I’ve known Ricky since I’m 8 years old! He was in Les Mis on Broadway with me in 1996! Crazy huh?!” She shared another photo later on with a caption that said Martin is “a great fit for our show.”
Fans can also see Martin in the Broadway revival of Evita starting in April.
