A little cross promotion with X-Factor?
TV Line reports that Demi Lovato is in negotiations to join the cast of Glee for season five. She is close to signing the deal, which would see her play Dani, a struggling artist in New York City who is a friend of Rachel and Santana. She will also interact regularly with Adam Lambert's character and the two will have musical numbers together. The deal would have her appearing in at least six episodes, starting with the second part of the Beatles tribute that airs on October 3. The series will work around her X Factor schedule, as she is still a judge on that show.
This will be her first acting role since her Disney Channel series Sonny with a Chance was canceled two years ago. She has also starred in the Camp Rock films and episodes of both Prison Break and Grey's Anatomy.
This gives Fox the ability to cross-promote both shows, as X Factor's results show leads into Glee on Thursdays. Glee returns on September 26 at 9/8c.
