Katie Couric Confirmed to Guest Star on 'Glee'
Katie Couric is the latest guest-star on Fox's Glee, her rep confirms to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fox declined to comment on her specific role, but the New York Post reported she'll appear in a scene with cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) on the post-Super Bowl episode, which airs Feb. 6. Couric was a high-school cheerleader.
Couric, who will be the keynote speaker at The Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment event, will interview Matthew Morrison (who plays glee club director Mr. Schuester) on CBS Sunday Morning this weekend. She has said her daughters are fans of the show.
It's rare for an anchor to appear on a competing network. Brian Williams, who hosts the NBC Nightly News, regularly pops up on 30 Rock.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Britney Spears and Neil Patrick Harris are among the bold-faced names who have appeared on the show. VIDEO: Watch Paltrow sing on Glee.
