Gwyneth Paltrow, Kristin Chenoweth, Glee


Could the 100th episode of Glee also set the stage for a battle of the blondes?!

Kristin Chenoweth and Gwyneth Paltrow, who both played Will Schuester's (Matthew Morrison) former love interests, are returning for the Fox hit's milestone episode and we've learned that they will be sharing a lot of screen time.

"I get to do a lot with Gwyneth Paltrow," Kristin Chenoweth told E! News at the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year event honoring Carole King. "We are reprising our guest starring roles and that makes it really fun. We're having a good time."

Chenoweth played April Rhodes, a former McKinley High glee club superstar who eventually ended up on Broadway, while Paltrow, who won an Emmy in 2011 for her work on the show, took on the role of substitute teacher extraordinaire Holly Holliday, who ended her relationship with Will after moving to Cleveland and calling him out for being in love with now-wife Emma (Jayma Mays).

But it sounds like April and Holly's meeting will be a friendly affair, as Chenoweth called her return to set "amazing" and "so fun." But she did forget one downside to filming Glee: "The hours, I always forget how long and crazy they are, singing and dancing about. But [it's] fun being back with the cast!"

And another blonde will be sharing screen time with Chenoweth and Paltrow: Jane Lynch!

At the 66th Annual Directors Guild Awards on Saturday, Lynch told us she just filmed with the fan favorite guest stars. "I worked with both of them yesterday. We did a scene together," she said. "It was so great to have them back. They're so much fun. Kristin's a ball."

And Lynch revealed, "They both have songs, not with me!"

We also chatted with Paris Barclay, the director of the 100th episode, at the DGA Awards, where he spilled that filming of the landmark episode has "taken a little longer because it's a bigger extravaganza than we've done in a while!"

Glee's two-part 100th episode will air March 18 and 25 on Fox.
