Following in the footsteps of Gwyneth Paltrow and Idina Menzel, Ricky Martin could possibly be the next high-profile celeb to play a teacher on Glee.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the openly gay singer/actor is in talks to guest star in an episode of Fox’s musical phenomenon currently scheduled to air in January.

The episode is said to feature two musical numbers headlined by Martin, who will play a Spanish teacher with a talent for singing and dancing.

Paltrow’s performance as McKinley High substitute Holly Holliday was praised by fans and earned her an Emmy. A guest spot on Glee could offer a similar boost for Martin, who has had limited mainstream performances or exposure to US audiences since publicly coming out in 2010.
