While “Other Asian” eagerly anticipates his next line of dialogue, Fox’s ‘Glee‘ has drawn the interest of Javier Bardem.

The Academy Award winner (‘No Country For Old Men’) pitched the very special stop-by to ‘Glee’ creator Ryan Murphy as they collaborated on the August 13 release, ‘Eat Pray Love,’ which also stars Julia Roberts and was directed/cowritten by  Murphy.

If the guest gig comes to fruition, Bardem would play a rocker who befriends Artie (Kevin McHale), Entertainment Weekly reports. “We’re going to do some heavy metal — Spanish heavy metal, which is the worst,” Bardem tells the mag.

Other guest stars on tap for ‘Glee’s second season include John Stamos (as Emma’s dentist-beau) and international pop starlet Charice (as an exchange student whose mad pipes make Rachel quake), but not Miley Cyrus.
