Matthew Morrison wants Jessie J to star in 'Glee'.

The 32-year-old actor - who plays Spanish teacher Will Schuester in the comedy musical TV show - thinks the British pop star would be "absolutely great" in the series and is pushing for her to have a guest role.

He said: "She's incredible! That voice! It'd be great to have her as a lunch lady, serving dinners, with a net on her hair, absolutely great. We've had so many big names - now we want Jessie."

A number of major stars have taken part in 'Glee' before.

Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow took on the role of Holly Holiday for a number of guest appearances, while Britney Spears has also featured.

Matthew has since revealed he would like Gwyneth, who starred as his love interest in the series, to take on a permanent role.

He said: "I would definitely welcome that and I think everyone on our show would, but I don't think that's possible because she has her family in London. I've begged her but I don't think it's going to happen."
