Playing the trainer of McKinley High's synchronized swimming team, the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star slips into her coach jacket and looks straight into Sam Evans' eyes.
"Glee" has offered a sneak peek at how NeNe Leakes will look like as Coach Roz through a brand new still. Coming out via ET Online, the first-look image sees "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star wearing a training jacket as she stares Sam Evans straight in his eyes.
Portraying McKinley High's new swim coach, NeNe will make her debut on the "Yes/No" episode when the hit show returns to the small screen. Her character is set to train the synchronized swimming team, which Sam joins to impress Mercedes, and will become a major rival for mean cheerleaders coach Sue Sylvester.
NeNe isn't the only guest stars coming to the series in 2012. Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren is also on board to make a cameo. She, however, will not make an appearance in person. Instead, the Oscar winner will provide the "inner voice" to one of the characters that is still being kept as a secret.
In addition to NeNe and Helen, "Glee" has other A-list guest stars for its 2012 episodes. They include Latin singers Gloria Estefan and Ricky Martin. Meanwhile, "Yes/No" will air on January 17, 2012 on FOX.
