Move over, Mr. Schue. Pop star Ricky Martin will be livin’ la vida Lima this season as the “the hottest Spanish teacher ever in the history of Ohio,” sources tell TV Line.

If you’re thinking, They could’ve just stopped at “ever,” then you’re not alone. And after the new year, the ladies of Glee won’t just be rolling their R’s with Mr. Martin. Oh, get your minds out of the gutter. It’s not what you think! The new faculty member is, naturally, musically talented and will do not one but TWO musical numbers on the show. 

While we might be stoked by the news, we can think of one guy who might not be: Javier Bardem.

The Spanish actor, whom Glee creator Ryan Murphy directed in Eat Pray Love, was lobbying for a guest spot on Glee this time last year — despite the fact he didn’t want to sing or dance... at all. Still, we kind of liked his idea of a crazy, tatted-up rock star shaking things up in Lima a la Gwyneth Paltrow’s Holly Holliday. What better way than as... a high school Spanish teacher!

Maybe next time, Javier. For now, we’re OK with this smoldering stud speaking sweet foreign nothings in our ear (via our television speakers).
