Lindsay Lohan 's mighty comeback continues at pace, ahead of her final probation hearing at the end of the week, it's been announced that the 25 year-old will be appearing on the hit musical drama Glee. It makes for a remarkable turnaround and sets everything up nicely for a full re-emergence of her career following hosting 'Saturday Night Live' recently as well as being given the starring role in the biopic 'Liz and DICk' about the marriage of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
TV Line reported that Lohan was in final negotiations with Fox about appearing in 'Glee,' with a source suggesting that she'll play herself as one of the judges at the Nationals. There has been no word as yet as to who the other judges might be, though the rumors are that Olivia Newton-John and Josh Groban could make appearances.
The move is a turnaround for many reasons, not least the fact that Lohan was the butt of many a-joke in the previous seasons of 'Glee,' with one particular scene involving Katie Couric informing Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester that she beat out Lohan's mother Dina and her dog Sparky to make the list of the "world's biggest losers." At the time Dina told E! Online It's a shame as the dance numbers are amazing, but the writers need to be nice and more creative as opposed to being hurtful."
