The No Country for Old Men star, who is dating Penelope Cruz, has confirmed he will play a rocker who befriends Kevin McHale's character Artie Abrams in an upcoming episode of the programme.
Bardem tells Entertainment Weekly, "We're going to rock the house! We're going to do some heavy metal - Spanish heavy metal, which is the worst."
The news comes as Katie Holmes' representative dismissed reports the actress is set to join the cast, branding the rumours "not true".
Other celebrities who have already made guest appearances include Olivia Newton-John, Eve, Josh Groban and Neil Patrick Harris.
The former Dawson's Creek star is reportedly negotiating a deal with Fox network bosses to feature in a five-part guest spot during Glee's upcoming second season.
The National Enquirer reports Holmes has already hired a private singing coach to help her prepare for the role.
A source says: "Katie is finalising a deal to join the cast for a limited story line next season."
Previous episodes of the hit U.S. series have featured cameos by Olivia Newton-John, rapper Eve, Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth and comedienne Molly Shannon.
Animation particularly when it comes out of the Disney/Pixar stable is one of those areas of filmmaking that regularly inspires the phrase "They don't make them like they used to." In the case of Toy Story 3 however it's more accurate to say "They have never made them like this." It's certainly not unheard of for an animated film to be good for a Pixar film to be great or for the third film in a trilogy to be outstanding (though that's the rarest of the three) but in the case of Lee Unkrich's film the sheer degree at which it exceeds at all three is not just rare it's unprecedented.
Eleven years have elapsed since Woody (Tom Hanks) Buzz (Tim Allen) and all of Andy's favorite playthings had their last adventure -- rather 11 years have elapsed since Andy stopped playing with his toys. Buoyed by Woody's never-failing devotion the gang is all optimistic that Andy will elect to bring them with him to his first year of college but as that fateful empty-nest day approaches it becomes clearer and clearer that the only toy that will be making the trek to school is Woody. The rest are all by a series of unfortunate events consigned to live out their remaining days at Sunnyside daycare. Things are actually looking up for the neglected entertainers until they realize just how careless the ankle-biters are when it comes to playing with toys.
Unfortunately there is no escape in sight for the lovable personalities Pixar has been refining for over a decade. Lotso Huggin' Bear (Ned Beatty) runs a tight ship at Sunnyside; the new toys are just going to have to be sacrificed to the aggressive toddlers so the old veterans can have a relaxing time with their more mature counterparts. Eventually Woody catches wind of what kind of life his old pals are being forced to live and Toy Story 3 quite brilliantly becomes a riff on classic prison escape movies as Woody seeks to breach Lotso's security measures and bring his bunch back to Andy where they belong. And while this on-the-run chunk of the film is some of the most thrilling material Pixar has ever delivered it's also some of the most touching.
Unlike most sequels not a moment of Toy Story 3 feels artificial. There's no sense that Pixar decided to make a third film because it knew that the box office would gladly support another entry; no sense that this is a cash grab (unlike a certain green ogre's most recent trip to the big screen). All of those typical sequel pitfalls are carefully avoided by a swelling sense of finality. Toy Story 3 isn't just another adventure with these characters -- there is in fact no doubt that this is their final adventure their final hoorah together. Director Lee Unkrich and screenwriter Michael Arndt meticulously lead the audience along with bated breath the entire time culminating in a life-or-death scenario for the toys that is more heartfelt and genuine than most live-action films can ever muster.
It's astonishing how the creative team at Pixar can make you forget that what you're watching is all a bunch of digital wizardry. Maybe it's the 3D this time around maybe it's that this is the studio's most accomplished technical feat to date (there are single shots at a landfill that pack in richer detail than the entirety of the pioneering first film) that makes Toy Story 3 such an immersive experience. Or maybe it's simply because Pixar treats its property which is ostensibly for children with the utmost sincerity. The result is an overwhelming success the rare kind of film that were it a human being would be your best friend.
One could reasonably make the case that Toy Story 3 is the single best animated film ever made. I wouldn't outright agree with such grandiose claims but it's certainly not a baseless proposition that you'd be laughed at for bringing up. However with part three now tucked under Pixar's belt one could present an even better case that Toy Story is the best film trilogy ever made -- a claim I am far more comfortable signing on the dotted line for.
The actress has shot to international fame since joining the cast of the all-singing-all-dancing programme, which has seen a Madonna music tribute, while Olivia Newton-John, Neil Patrick Harris and Josh Groban have all filmed cameos.
But she's still getting used to the show's massive celebrity following - and she was taken aback when Roberts approached her at this year's (10) Golden Globes to gush about her love for Glee.
She tells Britain's Glamour magazine, "Julia Roberts came up to our table at the Golden Globes and said how much she loved the show. And I was reading in a magazine the other day that J.Lo had mentioned how much she liked my performance, so that was also really cool... I am trying to grasp the fact that we have become as successful as we are in the United States, let alone the rest of the world."
Lynch's character, sports teacher Sue Sylvester, will sing hit track Let's Get Physical with Newton-John in an upcoming episode of the musical show.
And the 49 year old admits it's a dream come true to perform with the singer/actress.
She says, "Sue Sylvester will be singing Let's Get Physical with Olivia Newton-John. I cannot wait to meet her. I met her once at a premiere of a movie she did but this will be (better). I'll get to hang out with her.
"I named my dog after her! I was a huge fan of hers and always loved the name too, so Olivia Newton-John lives in my dog Olivia."
Singer/actress OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN is set for another movie musical role after signing up to play a hockey mum in an indie film. The Grease star will be a big part of Score: A Hockey Musical.

The majesty of the Emerald Isle is on full display in Leap Year an opposites attract romantic comedy starring Amy Adams (Julie & Julia Enchanted) and Matthew Goode (A Single Man Watchmen). Director Anand Tucker (Shopgirl Hilary and Jackie) shooting entirely on location in Ireland takes us on a whirlwind tour of the country’s breathtaking landscape reveling in its fabled fairy-tale charm.
Pity then that such a magnificent setting is so mercilessly defaced by Leap Year’s unrelenting mediocrity. The film’s dubious premise testing the already loose limits of rom-com believability casts Adams as Anna a type-A career girl who flies to Ireland intending to pop the question to her feet-dragging boyfriend on February 29th aka Leap Day. Why Leap Day? Because according to some idiotic old Irish tradition that’s when women are allowed to do such things. (Click here to watch Adams herself try to explain the plot.)
Unfortunately for Anna weather problems force her plane to land far away from Dublin and her would-be fiance. Trapped in a tiny coastal town with no reliable transportation at her disposal she enlists the help of a scruffy abrasive barkeep named Declan (Goode) to drive her cross-country so she can reach her destination by the 29th. And thus begins the traditional rom-com mating ritual of sexually-charged bickering followed by moments of abrupt awkward intimacy.
While watching Leap Year I swear I could hear the Irish countryside quietly weeping as it witnessed Goode and Adams slog through the film's succession of trite misadventures the talented actors straining in vain to manufacture some semblance of romantic chemistry as an assortment of jolly Waking Ned Devine types futilely spurred them on. Oh if only Greenpeace could have intervened and put a halt to such wanton environmental desecration. It's the worst thing to come out of Ireland since The Cranberries.
The Desperate Housewives actress and her basketball star husband are inviting fans to recreate scenes from the 1978 musical for a new online competition - and they've made the contest's first entry with their own take on the classic Grease track, Summer Nights.
Longoria Parker donned a blonde wig and a bright yellow dress to play Newton-John's Sandy in the spoof, while her husband showed off his dance moves as Travolta's bad boy Danny Zuko.
In a clip on his official website, the San Antonio Spurs guard explains they chose Grease because "it's Eva's favourite film," before challenging fans to submit their own parodies.
The couple will select their favourite videos and fly the winners out to one of Parker's basketball games in Texas, where they'll meet them.
The deadline for video entries is 31 January (10).
