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.
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.
