Anne Hathaway will guest star on Glee later this season.
Series creator Ryan Murphy has written a part especially for Hathaway, 28, after the Oscar hostissued a public plea to play the lesbian aunt of flamboyant Gleeker Kurt, played by Chris Colfer.
“The thing that’s great about Anne Hathaway is that she created her own character and we just ran into her and we said ‘Really?’ So we’re going to do that. We love her…” Murphy confirmed backstage at Sunday night’s Golden Globes, just moments after the musical-comedy won a Golden Globe for Best Series.
Celebs Katie Couric, Gwyneth Paltrow, and David Alan Grier are also tipped to drop into the halls of McKinley High during Glee’s ratings-winning second season. We’re still waiting to hear whether producers will try to nab Anne’s Princess Diaries co-star, screen dame Julie Andrews, who Colfer has also expressed an interest in working with.
