Matthew's wife Sarah Jessica Parker will also appear on the small screen when she stars in the latest series of Glee. The former Sex and the City actress will be a "frazzled and eccentric" editor of an acclaimed fashion magazine's website when she makes her guest appearance in the musical drama and show bosses think she is "hilarious."

"Sarah Jessica Parker is gonna be running Vogue.com. That's sort of where we encounter this character, who's sort of frazzled, eccentric, hilarious. It's gonna be good," said the show's co-creator and executive producer Ian Brennan.

Sarah Jessica's storyline sees her encounter both Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) and Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) in New York. Darren Criss, who plays Kurt's boyfriend Blaine Anderson, previously spoke about how excited he was about the casting: "I've had a good ride, sort of hanging on to Chris' coattails. If I could continue to do that, that'll be great... And if that yields work with Sarah Jessica Parker, I'll be thrilled. That'd be so cool. I love her."
