Glee may be getting a high-profile guest star next season. Anne Hathaway first expressed her desire to come on the show last fall, and show creator Ryan Murphy confirmed to press this past January that he planned to have the actress on the show, possibly in the role of Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) lesbian aunt. However, several months later, Hathaway’s still waiting for the call from Murphy, so she decided to call Murphy out on a recent interview. Hathaway recounted the story to Buzz Sugar:

Ryan Murphy goes, “Anne Hathaway! Come on Glee.” And I said, “Yes!” and he said “Fab, I’ll call you.” He went back to the press room and said, “Anne Hathaway is going to be on the show.” And I never heard from him again. Ryan Murphy, I’m calling you out: I want to be on Glee. I’ve got my songs picked out.

I’ve got my fingers crossed that at least one of those tunes is a rap song — I wouldn’t want her skills, as recently demonstrated on Conan, to go to waste. [Vulture]

After the jump, Fox grabs a drama by Fight Club writer Jim Uhls, and the kid who played Bobby Draper on Mad Men gets amusingly frank about his former TV mom.

[No photo]

We’ve already seen photos of Andrew Garfield as both Peter Parker and Spider-Man and Emma Stone as love interest Gwen Stacy in
Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man. Today we have the first looks at Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors a.k.a. The Lizard, and Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben.

The first photo, snapped by college student J. Anthony Hall, shows Ifans and Garfield filming an outdoor scene. Not much is actually happening in the still, but it’s worth noting that Ifans is clearly wearing a bright green sock or covering over his right hand — presumably so it can be made to look missing or changed in post-production. (In the comics, Connors was a war surgeon who lost his arm in a blast. Upon returning to civilian life, he developed a serum from reptilian DNA and regenerated his arm. Then he became a full-on reptilian monster. Oops.)

The other images, from the Daily Mail, feature Sheen and Garfield standing outside in sunglasses. I’d guess that they aren’t in character in these pictures, but I can’t be sure. Scroll past the jump to see the full images. [Coming Soon via Obsessed with Film]

Also after the jump: possible bad news for Wonder Woman fans, possible good news for Pepper Potts fans, and an image from The Avengers set, and details on The Avengers‘ budget and locations.

Gallery 1988 has just revealed their final of the six awesome posters made for PaleyFest 2011. This one, for the hit Fox show Glee by Tom Whalen, rounds out a broad spectrum of shows that were graced with fantastic limited edition posters. And while Glee normally isn’t something we cover here on the site, as a poster collecting completest, anxiety would have set in if we only posted five of the six posters created for the series. All of these posters – including Eastbound and Down, Parks and Recreations and more -are on sale on the Gallery 1988 website. Currently, all except Glee are on there, as their panel isn’t until the 16th. See the full image and link to the rest of the posters after the break. Read More »
