Glee Books Eve as a Choir Director

R&B star Eve as a tough-love choir director? That's what we'll be seeing this Fall on Glee, as the show has booked the singer for a guest arc.

For two episodes, Eve will play a "no-nonsense" director of a girls' choir at a school that rivals McKinley High's ragtag group of misfit singers. It sounds like she'll be acting, as opposed to playing herself, which probably makes sense — but still, I'd love to see Eve step out on that stage to show the high schoolers how it's done.

Interestingly, Eve wasn't creator Ryan Murphy's first choice for the role: he initially approached Whitney Houston, whose comeback album will be out in the Fall, but Houston ultimately turned the job down. I'm a little surprised she'd stay away from a series with so much buzz, especially having seen the Glee kids' singing chops up close.

Can you picture Eve fitting the description of this part? And are there any tunes you'd especially like to see her direct?
