"Glee" has had many guest actors. We've had John Stamos, Britney Spears, Kristin Chenoweth, and Idina Menzel. We will soon see Carol Burnett as Sue Sylvester's Nazi-hunting mom, and there's been speculation that Susan Boyle will be in a Christmas episode. What other actors would we love to see on "Glee?"
• Nathan Fillion: We've already had Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion's arch-nemesis from "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog." We now need Captain Hammer. "Glee" needs Fillion for his humor. Put him in the role of an egotistical dimwit and fans will cheer. If "Glee" brings in Fillion, they are sure to win over the entire Whedonverse, and the show will never die. Just imagine Fillion as a guest actor on "Glee" and try not to laugh. He can barely sing, but as long as he does so with his macho charm, we won't care.
• Sean Hayes & Megan Mullally: These two have to be together to form the perfect comedy duo. Karen and Jack in "Will & Grace" were the main reason the show lasted as long as it did. People tuned in to see them together. "Glee" needs to team them up again and toss them into William McKinley High. Chenoweth might have done a good job as a drunk, but Mullally will top her. As for Hayes, give him a number with Kurt.
• Kathy Bates: When "Glee" needs a guest actor to play a villain, the show had better bring in Kathy Bates. There isn't a single person who has watched "Misery" that doesn't flinch when they see her on screen. It doesn't matter how many nice roles she plays, we always see her with that sledgehammer and a psychotic look on her face. Not to mention, Bates can sing. No one could be a better rival for Sue Sylvester than her.
• Ringo Starr: Paul McCartney sent "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy a mixtape of songs for the show. While it would be amazing to have a Beatles episode, it isn't Paul "Glee" should have as a guest actor. We need Ringo. He's been in a number of movies, and his acting skills are way better than Paul's. Have you seen "Give My Regards to Broad Street," Paul's attempt at a film? Ringo is lovable and not afraid to be a little silly. "Glee" could have him show Finn how to really play the drums.
• Ewan McGregor: "Glee," we need a "Moulin Rouge!" episode. We need the bright colors, the flashy lights, and the large dance numbers. Mostly, we need Ewan McGregor singing in those dance numbers. We've already had a "Rocky Horror Picture Show" episode on "Glee," and now we need another movie-turned-episode theme. What better than McGregor singing in a giant elephant in the gymnasium?
• Reba McIntyre: We need her for a country-themed episode. "Glee" focuses mostly on pop and hip-hop, the popular music styles today. McIntyre can act, too. "Glee" could sing her songs, as well as those from popular young performers like Taylor Swift.
• Rob Zombie: "Glee" should bring in Rob Zombie for a Halloween episode. That is, if they could get him to want to bother. Give him free rein to turn an episode into a blood fest and he just might consider. Seriously, "Glee," we need some metal.
• Queen Latifah: Imagine the soulful ballads Queen Latifah and Mercedes could belt out.
• Alan Alda: This man is a comic genius, and he can sing. Move over, Betty White. Alda might be younger, but if we can get him on "Glee" he would become a TV hero again.
• Julie Andrews: "The Sound of Music" and "Mary Poppins"? How could "Glee" go wrong with Julie Andrews? We've already had Kurt singing a Victor/Victoria song.
