Hollywood star and Oscar winner Anne Hathaway is next in line to join the Glee guest star list. E! News confirmed the story yesterday with Ryan Murphy backstage at the Golden Globes right after they won for best Best Musical or Comedy series. Apparently, Anne will play Kurt’s lesbian aunt in an upcoming episode. Amazing.
According to Murphy, Anne Hathaway had created this creator and brought it to Ryan and the producers of the hit FOX show. When Ryan finally had a chance to meet with her, and hear about this character, he couldn’t say now. Brad Falchuck, the shows executive producer says its hard to say no to someone of her caliber when they come to you with this kind of idea.
The news was a shock to some of the cast as well who only found out about the news once Ryan announced backstage. Previously, Chris Colfer had mentioned his dream Glee parents would be Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews. It looks like half of his dream may come true. How do you feel about Anne Hathaway’s appearance on Glee?
