If the creators of Glee can deliver us a more likable Gwyneth Paltrow and a totally coherent Britney Spears, we can only image what an Anne Hathaway Glee episode would do for the actress’ success. While on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Thursday to promote her new film with Jake Gyllenhaal, Love & Other Drugs, Hathaway completely gleeked out, sharing her incredibly elaborate plans for a turn on the hit Fox show. Admitted a bashful Anne, “Can I make a confession? In my head I’ve written myself a part on Glee. That [sounds] so arrogant and obnoxious … in my head, I cast myself on Glee and I know what song I would sing.” Aw, only Anne Hathaway would think having a spazz attack over a high school musical show as being “arrogant,” rather than “painfully nerdy.”
Explains Hathaway, “I would want to play Kurt’s long lost aunt, his 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 Stephen Sondheim’s epic show Into The Woods. A slightly shocked Jimmy Fallon praised Hathaway’s creativity, exclaiming, “Wow, you really have though this out…you thought of the whole episode,” to which Hathaway laughed, “By the way, this is my nerdiest interview ever!” So from what we gather, the writers on Glee can basically stop working now and just let mega-celebrities write, cast and direct all the episodes going forward. Don’t worry, you guys; Anne Hathaway’s got this one.
