Glee is going to have to put the brakes on hiring guest stars soon—it’s like we hear of a new one every single week!
The latest star to Gleek out is Billy Joel. This was hinted about by show creator Ryan Murphy months ago, and it sounds like Joel is up for it! He told Access Hollywood, “I already have,” when asked if he would sign off on a ‘Glee’ episode of Billy Joel.
“I said, ‘Yeah, go ahead, use my stuff,” said Joel. “I was in a chorus when I was in high school, why not?”
But unlike Britney Spears or Neil Patrick Harris, Billy won’t be playing a character, or even himself for that matter, on the episode. “I’m just not a big TV actor type of guy. I’m a piano player,” he said.
Speaking of Neil Patrick Harris, he sang Joel’s song “Piano Man” on the show last season, and earned an Emmy for his work on the series.
We think the show can convince him to do a small role too!
