Official: Gwyneth Paltrow to appear on 'Glee'

Ryan Murphy confirms actress will sing three to four songs

After days of speculation on the Internet, it has been confirmed: Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow will be setting foot on "Glee" this season.

"Yes, it's true," Ryan Murphy told "She is a fan of the show."

According to Murphy, who is friends with the actress, Paltrow will "be playing a substitute teacher who Matt Morrison's character (Will) falls for."

He added: "She will be doing three or four solos."

This shouldn't come as a surprise as her next film, "Country Strong," has Paltrow playing a washed-up country singer.

"Country Strong," starring Paltrow, Tim McGraw and Leighton Meester, will be in theaters in December.
