Ricky Martin is having a glee old time in Los Angeles this week…
The 40-year-old has started filming scenes on Fox’s hit musical dramedy, where he’ll guest star as a musically inclined Spanish teacher.
On Thursday evening, he even tweeted proof of his participation on Glee: a photo of himself with the cast, including Lea Michele, Vanessa Lengies, Naya Rivera, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Matthew Morrison, Mark Salling, Cory Monteith, Damian McGinty and Harry Shum Jr., with the message: “First day!! :o)”
Michele, who has worked with Martin before in a production of Les Miserables when she was a child, was genuinely excited to have Martin on the set.
“I’ve known Ricky since I’m 8 years old! He was in Les Mis on Broadway with me in 1996!,” Michele tweeted to her 1.4 million followers. “Crazy huh?!”
Later on, the part-Spanish actress shared another photo with Martin, calling him “a great fit for our show.”
