Grammy Award winner, actress and fashion designer Eve is set to guest-star in two episodes of GLEE as the coach of a rival glee club that could threaten McKinley High’s chances of winning big. Additional guest stars appearing throughout the upcoming season include Josh Groban, Kristen Chenoweth and Victor Garber. GLEE, the distinctive new comedy from Ryan Murphy (“Nip/Tuck”), premieres Wednesday, Sept. 16 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Eve will kick off her triumphant return to music later this year with the release of her fourth studio album, “Flirt.” After her 1999 debut, “Ruff Ryders’ First Lady,” went double platinum, her critically acclaimed sophomore album garnered tremendous cross-over appeal with the Grammy Award-winning hit “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” featuring Gwen Stefani. In 2002, she appeared in the action blockbuster “xXx” alongside Vin Diesel. Her additional film credits include “Barbershop” with Ice Cube and “The Cookout” with Queen Latifah. She is also set to star in the Fox Searchlight film “Whip It!” directed by Drew Barrymore. In 2003, the former Ruff Ryder produced and starred in “Eve,” a sitcom about a fashion designer that ran for three seasons. Soon after, life imitated art when she launched her clothing line, Fetish.
Featuring a soundtrack of hit songs from past and present, GLEE follows an optimistic high school teacher who – against all odds and the wishes of his wife – attempts to restore his school’s fading glee club to its former glory, while helping a group of aspiring underdogs realize their true star potential.
