Javier Bardem is going to show up on Fox’s hit show Glee, and he’s going to be singing heavy metal.

“Spanish heavy metal, which is the worst,” the great actor tells EW.

Apparently Bardem became a big fan of the show after watching it all over the course of a week and working with show creator Ryan Murphy on the upcoming Eat Pray Love. Bardem will be a rocker who befriends wheelchairing Artie, a character who really has remained steadfastly at the margins of the show.

Apparently it was Bardem’s idea, and he pitched the character to Murphy.
