Glee Casting Rumors: Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews to Guest Star?

by at . Comments

It's sounding more and more like Anne Hathaway and Chris Colfer might both get their wish.

The actress appeared on Jimmy Fallon earlier this month and talked of her desire to guest star on Glee. The 2011 Oscars co-host said:

"I 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.”

Meanwhile, Colfer is on record as saying he'd love for Julie Andrews to come on board as "Kurt's fashionable grandmother."

According to The Toronto Sun, producers are in negotiations with the Sound of Music star to do just that. She has worked with Hathaway before, on The Princess Diaries, meaning we could very well see both actresses on the same episode.

Would this be a dream come true, fans? Or a case of too much stunt casting? Sound off now in our Glee forum!

ENOUGH GUEST STARS!! Please, dear God. Can't we just focus on Tina, Emma, Terri and Burt already? Besides, Anne Hathaway is too young to be Kurt's aunt! It's even more weird that she is younger than Cory Monteith and Mark Salling, who are both months older than her! If this is true, my head will explode.

I agree with Emma Julie Andrews on Glee would probably make my hear stop too. I love that they already did one of her numbers from Victor/Victoria. Anne Hathaway is good too.

Glee Quotes

Rachel: This is what I wanted!
Sam: No, what you wanted was a second chance to get it right and Carmen just gave it to you. If you throw all that away you're going to be making the same mistake all over again

Finn: I seem to recall a rumor about a certain cheerleading coach at this school who once took horse estrogen and posed for Penthouse back in the day. So maybe I can just track that down and make a few copies and sell those to raise money for Regionals.
Sue: That's nothing but a rumor. But if that rumor were true, my Penthouse centerfold so groundbreaking that it completely redefined the term 'hirsute,' and gave birth unto these United States a pose so limber they named it the Regal American Not-So-Bald Spread Eagle, I promise you, my friend, you would never find it.
