John TravoltaJohn Travolta won't be jumping on the 'Glee' cameo train. The 'Grease' star told 'Entertainment Tonight' he was asked to cameo but turned down the offer.

"They've asked, but when I do musicals I train for six to nine months ... and a show like that is an on-demand thing," Travolta said. "I really have a criteria or a pride that I would wanna knock 'em dead, and I don't think I'd knock 'em dead in a week."

Travolta's 'Grease' co-star Olivia Newton John has appeared on the show twice. Among other high-profile guests, Oscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow has a recurring role on the series and Anne Hathaway dreamed up her own role and pitched it to producers.
