Heather Morris and a host of former Glee stars will reunite for the show's 100th episode.
Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy announced on his Twitter account this week that all of the original cast members are being invited back for the celebratory episode. He has now confirmed that Heather - who played cheerleader Brittany S. Pierce in the show - will return, along with Harry Shum Jr. (Mike), Mark Salling (Puck), Dancing with the Stars winner Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Kristin Chenoweth (April), who won an Emmy for her guest turn.
Heather hasn't appeared in the program since the fourth-season finale when Brittany was written out of the series, after announcing she was bound for early admission to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since her exit, actress Heather and her boyfriend Taylor Hubbella welcomed their first child in the world, Elijah, who was born in September.
Whether Dianna Agron, who played Quinn, will return for the special episode remains unclear. The actress has not appeared since the 14th episode of Glee's fourth season and was not a part of season five's tribute to late star Cory Monteith.
Renee Zellweger is being lined-up to appear on Dancing with the Stars.
Bosses for the reality show are keen to pull out all of the stops for the next season by choosing celebrity contestants who have all won Oscars, and they believe securing Renee - who took home the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for her role in Cold Mountain in 2003 - will encourage other stars to sign up.
"Renee is being seen as the lynchpin contestant that would seal the deal for the theme season. The producers are fixated on Renee, in part because she hasn't done much dancing at all since Chicago more than 10 years ago and there's this real mystery about her and what she's up to. They keep raising the amount of money they are willing to give her in the hope that she'll say yes, and the theory is that if they can get her to sign on, then it would attract some other really prominent Oscar winning stars - who wouldn't normally do reality TV - to fall in step," a source said.
Ratings for the ABC program have decreased in recent seasons after producers only wanted celebrities with little dancing experience to take part, but they believe a talent like Renee's could boost viewings. "Now that the rule that stars had to be total dance novices has been broken, it opens the door wide for someone like Renee, who hoofed it in Chicago, to strut her stuff. The DWTS masterminds think the idea of having a theme of Oscar winners would be a sure ratings-grabber," the source explained.
Roseanne Barr is not happy with the executives over at NBC - where she was developing her comeback television series - and she evidently wants the internet to know the extent of her anger.
The comedienne took to social networking site Twitter to unleash her disapproval with the NBC suits, pointing out that she gets treated differently than younger women in the industry, despite her career: "women who have achieved far less than me are allowed to write their own shows, bit I’m constantly forced 2 work w a censoring ‘show runner.’"

Mike Tyson wants a role on Downton Abbey.
The boxing legend wants to take on more acting roles since his retirement from the sport, and would love Julian Fellowes to write him a part in the British period drama set in the early 20th century. When asked whether he wanted to act more, Mike said, "I would. I'm coming to the West End soon for my one-man show, so maybe when I fly to the UK they'll give me a part on Downtown Abbey [sic]. I like that show. I'm sure they could give me a part."
The former world heavyweight champion found it tough reminiscing about the past for his new memoir, Undisputed Truth, and claims his childhood was harder to bear than the "good days" he spent in jail in the 90s in the intimate company of his female counselor. "There were some horrific things [in my childhood] that I did not enjoy. Jail was a lot easier ... I had a female counselor and we'd do it for a long time. I had some good days in there," Mike quipped.
Now that the buzz has died down from the excitement (which was quickly followed by disappointment) of the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who, BBC fans have something new to look forward to: the season premiere of Sherlock!
Announced via public stunt that was later posted to the show's Twitter account, Sherlock will return to the BBC on New Year's Day while us American folks can catch it air on PBS January 19th. Season three - which begins with the episode titled "The Empty Hearse" - will be divided into three 90-minute episodes. Episode two and three of this season are titled "The Sign of Three" and "His Last Vow," respectively.
Check out the season three trailer for Sherlock after the jump!

Matthew Morrison says that the Glee cast are over the "hump" of Cory Monteith's tribute episode.
The actor admits it was "hard and emotional" to say goodbye to both the actor - who overdosed on heroin and alcohol in July - and his character Finn Hudson in a one-off episode, but says the tragedy has brought them all closer together:
"We've kind of got over that hump of the Cory tribute episode. I'm so happy we did that, it was incredibly tough, hard and emotional for everyone but we all came together, we were happy to be on the other side of that. We're a family and we all have a great relationship with each other, but that just really solidified us and made us stronger."
Matthew was scheduled to play a concert the night he heard Cory had passed away and though he considered cancelling the show, he was happy it went ahead as he found performing "therapeutic." He explained to Britain's OK! magazine, "I had two shows after he passed and thought about cancelling them but I didn't want to let people down, I didn't think Cory would want me to. The shows were so hard to do but I'm happy I did because there is nothing more therapeutic than singing."
Kanye West doesn't like how Keeping Up With the Kardashians is filmed.
The 36-year-old rapper, who is engaged to the reality show's star, Kim Kardashian, admits he refuses to appear on the E! series because he doesn't think the production is up to his "meticulous" standards. "I don't do her show just because I don't like the way the producer shoots some of the shots. I'm very particular to that. I'm meticulous right. And I like to get a different DP [Director of Photography] or whatever," The "Bound 2" hitmaker told New York's 92.3 NOW radio station.
Elton John says that reality TV stars should be assassinated.
The 66-year-old singer thinks these kinds of shows - which he has been a vocal critic of - attract "nightmare people" who are just hungry for fame. "With reality television, you get all these nightmare people who want to be successful, when you really want them to be assassinated," Elton said, speaking on BBC World satellite radio.
The "Home Again" hitmaker - whose 31st studio album The Diving Board deals with issues surrounding entertainers finding fame young - thinks there are many talented individuals who end up spiralling out of control because they would "do anything" for fame. "It's about someone who's attracted to fame no matter what. They want fame whatever the consequences, and they'll do anything to get there," he said when quizzed about his album.
He thinks Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan - who has been to rehab on a number of occasions to combat substance abuse problems, most recently she underwent 90-days of court ordered treatment at the Betty Ford Clinic and then the Cliffside Malibu center - was a "victim of success." He added, "Lindsay Lohan, unfortunately, who had a great career as an actress and as a recording artist, she had a hit album... Suddenly, everything has fallen to bits because of the drugs. Her parents were a nightmare. She has become a victim of success and she wants success, no matter how much [it costs].''
Amber Riley has won Dancing with the Stars.
The Glee actress and her professional partner Derek Hough have taken home this year's mirrorball trophy after triumphing over High School Musical actor Corbin Bleu and his professional partner Karina Smirnoff with a perfect-scoring samba/quickstep fusion.
"Anything that scares me I want to do. You can do whatever, whatever, whatever you put your mind to," Amber said, speaking after the result was announced.
And despite coming second, Corbin was just delighted to have taken part: "I thank God for this experience. I thank my family."
Earlier in the evening, Jack Osbourne - whose sister Kelly came third on the show in 2009 - and his partner Cheryl Burke were eliminated into third place after the first round of dances. "I'm definitely not a better dancer than my sister, for one. We're both tied. Just going the distance for me was winning enough," he said.
Alec Baldwin's talk show has been officially axed.
The 55-year-old actor's late night MSNBC series Up Late has been cancelled after claims the former 30 Rock actor made a homophobic slur against a photographer earlier this month. A spokesperson for Alec and MSNBC issued the following statement to UsMagazine.com: "We are jointly confirming that Up Late will not continue on MSNBC. This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best."
The star reportedly called a paparazzo a "c**ksucking f*g" hours after winning a court case against his stalker in New York, but he later insisted he had called the man a "fat head." An insider told the New York Post's Page Six that executives were not impressed by his behavior and decided to cancel his show on Tuesday. "The decision has been made. He's gone. The [parent company] Comcast guys have decided. Word is spreading through the building," the source said.
The chat show was suspended from the Friday night slot two weeks ago and Alec admitted in a blog post at the time that the future of his talk show was unclear. "Whether the show comes back at all is an issue right now," he wrote.
