Lindsay Lohan's acting career appears to be on the rebound.

The "Mean Girls" actress, who's generated more headlines for her personal life than her professional life lately, has landed a guest-starring role in an upcoming episode of "Glee," her spokesman told TheWrap.

Details on her appearance are scarce, but the casting suggests that her career is on an upward trajectory. Lohan, 25, has also signed on to play screen icon Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming biopic to air on Lifetime.

The actress has had a contentious relationship with Fox's show — Lohan was said to be none too thrilled in late 2010, when a "Glee" episode guest-starring Gwyneth Paltrow made light of her troubles and rehab stints.

Lohan is due to appear in court on a probation hearing later this week. According to TMZ, the Los Angeles Country District Attorney's Office will not object to Judge Stephanie Sautner terminating the actress' formal probation, after she successfully completed the terms of her probation. This would be the first time that the troubled actress would be off formal probation in more than four years, the site notes.
