'Glee': Anne Hathaway's character is already written (in her head)

Posted on

Michael CeraAdd Anne Hathaway to the growing list of celebrities vying for a guest spot on Glee. Despite the competition, the Oscar-nominated actress’ preparedness just might put her over the edge. Last night on Late Night, the Love and Other Drugs star – and current EW cover girl — confided in Jimmy Fallon that she already has ideas for her character and a song choice in mind. What could it be? A princess-y Queen Bee, or something edgier, like her character Kym in Rachel Getting Married? See for yourselves, as Hathaway launches her Glee campaign after the jump. Are you watching this, Ryan Murphy?

Hardly the nerdiest interview ever, Stephen Sondheim FTW! Hathaway was raised on musical theater and held her own beside song and dance man Hugh Jackman during Oscar’s 2009 opening number, so we know she’s up to the task.

Gleeks, would you welcome Annie with open arms? Sound off below!
