Glee already has enough princesses on the show in the form of Rachel Berry and, um, Kurt Hummel, but the show is about to get a whole lot more royal! Princess Diaries co-stars and, oh yeah, legendary actresses Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway are in talks to join the show as Kurt’s very gorgeous kin — his grandmother and his gay aunt, respectively.
Chris Colfer has made it known that he wants both stars on the show, saying “Anne Hathaway wants to play my lesbian aunt. I’m all for that. Could you imagine a family with myself, Mike O’Malley, Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway? That’s one hell of a family.”
It’s being reported that the two megastars are getting closer and closer to inking a deal with the show. And just as happy as Chris would be if it came through? Anne! She recently said:
“In my head, I’ve cast myself in ‘Glee’ and I know what song I’m going to sing! I would wanna play Kurt’s long-lost aunt’s mother’s sister who is also gay, (who) comes back to help him deal with his sexuality, and I would sing You Are Not Alone from Steven Sondheim’s epic show ‘Into the Woods.’”
Epic is right. Do you want to see Julie and Anne on Glee?
