Glee Producer Brad Falchuk on Guest Stars: “I’d Never Say No to Gwyneth”!
According to the producers of Glee, Season 3 has such mind-blowing storylines that no guest stars will be needed to add spark to the show — but there is one celebrity they’ll never say no to.
“Anything Gwyneth [Paltrow] would want to do, I would say yes to,” Executive Producer Brad Falchuk told reporters at San Diego Comic-Con after the show’s panel. “She’s like a light. She brings a great energy and that character brings a great energy to the show. And she’s a great talent.”
Contrary to other guest cameos that tend to take the attention away from the core cast and storylines, Paltrow’s substitute teacher Holly Holiday actually makes the plots better.
“If you look at the sexy episode last year, I thought it was using Gwyneth in a way that was really wonderful and really organic to really help tell the Santana/Brittany story,” says Falchuk. And it doesn’t hurt that Paltrow’s a cool chick. “Everybody absolutely loves her. She works so hard and the cast absolutely loves her. So I’d never say no to Gwyneth. I don’t think anybody can say no to Gwyneth!”
