Blaine gets a power patron!

Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss) is getting some pretty fantastic help career wise – as Glee announces Oscar-winning actress Shirley MacLaine will join the show for “multiple episodes!”

TVLine reports that Ms. MacLaine will play a powerful New York City socialite who decides she’s going to make young Mr. Anderson a superstar. Just what that will entail we’ll find out soon enough – her first episode will air later this month.

Will we get some big song and dance numbers? (I’m guessing yes.) Will she be his fairy godmother or an obstacle to be overcome in his quest for a successful career? We shall see!

Shirley MacLaine has an extensive background in film and stage but very few television credits. She’s done a recent guest stint on Downton Abbey and it’s exciting to have her grace the small screen on Glee this season.

Glee airs on Fox, Tuesdays at 8pm EST.
