Talk about exciting, Anne Hathaway actually got the role (that she basically made up and then went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to plead her case to be cast on GLEE) during the actual Golden Globes…insane! She should be filming her episode in a month or so!
Anne Hathaway is heading to â€œGlee,â€ co-creator and writer Ryan Murphy confirmed to Access Hollywood on Sunday night.
â€œIt is true,â€ Ryan told Access at the FOX post-Golden Globes party. â€œShe said it in the press that she wants to play Chris Colferâ€™s lesbian aunt.â€
Ryan revealed that casting Anne on â€œGleeâ€ happened on Sunday night, while the Globes telecast was still going on.
â€œShe walked by our table and we have a mutual friend and I said, â€˜Do you really want to do it?â€™ And she said, â€˜I do.â€™ And I said, â€˜OK, weâ€™re gonna do it.â€™â€
The â€œGleeâ€ honcho said that they will likely film Anneâ€™s guest role in the coming weeks.
â€œI think weâ€™ll do it probably in a month and a half or soâ€¦ I have to talk to Anne about what she wants to sing. Iâ€™m sure she has ideas,â€ he said. â€œIâ€™m excited about that.â€
Anne actually revealed her interest in â€œGleeâ€ on Jimmy Fallonâ€™s â€œLate Night with Jimmy Fallonâ€ back in November.
