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

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
