Katie Couric is a Gleek

So Katie Couric thinks she can dance? Apparently so! The "CBS Evening News" anchor is set to show off some fancy footwork while warbling a tune during her upcoming guest spot on "Glee."

As Marquee previously reported, the 53-year-old former cheerleader will appear on the February 6 post-Super Bowl XLV episode of the hit Fox series and is expected to share scenes with acerbic Cheerios coach Sue Sylvester.

"She's a Gleek! She has been since the beginning," Jane Lynch, who plays Coach Sue, tells "Access Hollywood" of Couric. “I haven’t shot with her yet, but yeah, she’s going to be in our Super Bowl episode.”

But that's not all.

“She’s also doing a dance with [Matthew Morrison]," Lynch, 50, reveals of Couric's cameo with glee club director Will Schuester. "She’ll be doing ‘Tea for Two.' "

Are you excited to see Couric kick up her heels? Let us know in the comments below?

    Funny, when I was a kid the term 'Gleek" described spitting between your teeth. Funny, I think that is a better use of the word.

    She is totally a Gleek! I recently got a message from her on Twitter in reponse to a tweet I made about a Glee episode. So refreshing and funny when famous people act normalish 🙂

    By the way, it's very easy to figure out which commenters support the Wasilla Imbecilla.

    I would think she's still laughing too hard from her "interview" with the Wasilla Imbecilla.

    As a serious brokaw fan but non glee fan I really have gained respect for her after seeing her in a real and more natural light on the late late show last night. She is human and a beautiful woman inside and out...love her awesome personality and intellect.

    I actually find this offensive. She's the head anchor of a major news network and should act like one. To think some people said she wouldn't be taken as seriously as Peter Jennings or Tom Brokaw becasuse she is a woman! No, it's because of stunts like this. Maybe she should quit her post and get a job hosting the View, then she can do glee, DWTS, and anything else that's asinine.

    Too much gum. For someone who could be really attractive, her smile will scare little children (and adult males).

    I love Glee and I don't care who guest stars. I watch it because I like the show. Katie Couric is probably on her way out of CBS and I don't think her doing Glee makes a difference. I will watch the SuperBowl and having Glee on afterwards is something to look forward to.

    Really? Not only am I troubled that this is considered (entertainment) news, Katie again shows she is just a newsreader....miles from being a respected journalist, legitimate reporter or competent editor.

    Katie on Glee? Great. But if anyone wants to watch the news, they head somewhere else.

    I'm actually surprised that CBS is allowing Katie to do a project on another network.

    There putting on a show after the super bowl? I get the feeling that a majority of the Glee audience won't have been watching the game in the first place. I cannot wait until this show has faded into a memory....and this from a gay man...go figure.

      Vince, whining about a show no one's forcing you to watch is hilarious. And this from another gay man...go figure.

      Is it my imagination, or is the entire show just one big commercial for all things gay?

      Actually, that's incredibly on topic..do you think Murrow or Cronkite would go on TV to do a song and dance routine?
