NEW YORK (CBS) Susan Boyle will soon be heading back to high school - on television, that is.
"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy said at the Television Critics Association press tour that the "Britain's Got Talent" runner-up will appear (and sing) on the show's second season.
"Susan is on the same label as us and is a fan of the show," Murphy told People magazine. "She's coming out with a Christmas album, so the story I want to do in our Christmas episode is to have Kurt give her some sort of fantastic makeover and have her sing a song that's from her album on the show."
Other tidbits Murphy revealed about the second season:
-Javier Bardem will appear on the Fox series in the later part of the second season - and he's a fan of the show. "He requested it," Murphy said, adding that the actor will play "some demented Spanish rock star substitute teacher something, but I don't know -- we haven't figured that out yet."
-The Britney Spears tribute episode is a go, and is designed to highlight actress Heather Morris, who plays hilariously dumb cheerleader Brittany. (The show has already done tributes to Madonna and Lady Gaga).
-"Glee" has a famous fan in Paul McCartney. Murphy said he received a note from the star saying he was a fan of the show, and enclosed a mix of some of his songs, including "Michelle," and asked the creator to consider using them. ("Of course, we are going to do something," Murphy said.)
-A "Rocky Horror" tribute episode is being planned for near Halloween, and will feature the signature song "The Time Warp." Murphy said, "My favorite thing to do is to torture the boys and claim that I don't know who's wearing those gold lame briefs, because now they're all on diets. They're all in terror that I'm going to tell them that they're the one who has to get naked."
