Martin plays the sexiest Spanish teacher in all of Ohio (sorry Mr. Shue) and in the episode, he’ll be singing alongside Naya Rivera’s character, Santana. Rivera told MTV that working with the out “La Vida Loca” singer was a dream come true. “I got to do a duet with him which was insane. He’s a beautiful man, and I had my hands all over him.”
Here’s the general plotline: Will (Matthew Morrison) gives New Directions a Spanish-singing assignment and enlists the help of a musically-inclined night-school teacher (Martin). Meanwhile, Rachel (Lea Michele) tells Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) about Finn’s (Cory Monteith) marriage proposal.
The week after Martin’s episode also has some interesting guest stars: Jeff Goldblum (right, with Martha Stewart) and Brian Stokes Mitchell will play Rachel’s adoptive gay dads.
“In honor of Valentine’s Day,” goes the press release from Fox, “Mr. Schuester challenges New Directions to find and perform the world’s greatest love songs. Meanwhile, Rachel’s two dads, Hiram (Goldblum) and LeRoy (Mitchell), pay a visit to McKinley High.”
