Ricky Martin to Play ‘Hottest Spanish Teacher in History of Ohio’ on Glee

Father_Ricky_martinMichael Ausiello at TV Line reports that Glee is in negotiations with Ricky Martin:

The bon-bon shaker extraordinaire will play what a Glee insider is calling “the hottest Spanish teacher ever in the history of Ohio.” And a musically inclined one at that. I’m told Martin’s scalding instructor will headline two big musical numbers in the episode, which is slated to air in late January.

    I’m glad I didn’t have him for high school Spanish…super hot teacher plus teen hormones. Bad combination.

  2. Strepsi says

    I hope he duets with Chris Colfer.

    Ricky strikes me as a super-humpy muscle bottom, and it would be great for Kurt to discover that he is actually a power top. We just know Blaine is really a fuzzy, bossy bottom.

    Or they could all be versatile, it’s all good to me. Google translate tells me Menage à trois is the same in English, French, and Spanish.

    But man, if I were a kid at that high school, between Mr Schue and Ricky Martin, I would so be taking Spanish. Que rico!

    @JERRY – yes I know all too well. My french teacher in high school was pretty hot. My “teen hormones” is probably the best explanation for why I took three years of french.

    Is it just me, or is it sterotyping that he has to be a spanish teacher? Why not a coach or music teacher, shop teacher, or nurse?
    WHile thay are at it, why not a hairdresser-homie-ec teacher?

  5. BGKev says

    Why is it stereotyping? Plenty of people teach their native tongue as a second language – most of my Spanish instructors were from Spanish-speaking countries. It’s not like he’s from the Bronx. Now it may be typecasting, but it’s not like he’s an experienced actor, so of course they’re going to make the role one that should be easier for him.

    @bgkev Ricky has been a professional actor for years on Spanish TV. Mas alcanzar Las estrellas and Mama ama el Rock were regular shows he was on and he was a regular on General Hospital in the mid 90s so he doesn’t need a role made “easier” for him. I think maybe having more than one Latino (Santana) on the show is OK. Maybe the storyline will be a connection with the new Irish boy or Santana and not the gay boys.
