This won't be the first time that Paltrow has flexed her vocal chords on screen though. After performing with Huey Lewis in Duets and posing as a sultry lounge singer in Infamous, the Hollywood actress has proved that an all-singing, all-dancing appearance in Glee is well within her capabilities.
According to Glee creator Ryan Murphy, Paltrow will play a substitute teacher in the show and we speculate that she is almost certain to draw the attentions of Puck (Mark Salling), Finn (Cory Monteith) and even Mr Schuester (Matthew Morrison).
Extolling Paltrow's virtues, Murphy told the BBC that "Gwyneth is a great singer, she's done it a little bit but I really want to show it off and show everyone how great she is."
Glee airs 7:30pm Wednesdays on TEN.
