On-screen siren Anne Hathaway is following in the footsteps of many musical stars before her – by appearing on hit show Glee!
Popeater is reporting that Glee creator Ryan Murphy confirmed Hathaway’s appearance just after the series took home the Golden Globe for best Comedy or Musical last night.
“She created her own character, and we ran into her, and I said ‘Really?’” Murphy said. “She said ‘Yes!’ so we’re going to do that. We love her.”
Murphy’s announcement was still fresh news to most of the cast, who heard about the appearance mere minutes before it was announced to the public. Amber Riley, who plays divalicious Mercedes on the show, only got 10 minutes notice.
But most excited of all about Hathaway’s appearance is Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on the show.
“Can you imagine a family with myself, Mike O’Malley, Julie Andrews, and Anne Hathaway?” he gushed. “That’s one hell of a family!”
We hate to be a downer, but maybe Glee should stop putting so much money into getting guest stars and spend more time building an actual, sustainable plot that lasts more than one episode? We love Anne Hathaway but Glee is more like a revolving door of “substitute teachers” than an actual show!
