Just don't expect to see her anytime soon. Ryan Murphy is sticking by his word and not even an Oscar-nominated actress is going to deter him.
Last awards season, the big Glee buzz at the Golden Globes, besides Chris Colfer winning, was Anne Hathaway getting the green light from Ryan Murphy to be on the show. She had previously expressed a fervent desire to join the cast as Kurt's lesbian aunt and since Gleeks seemed genuinely excited about that, Ryan agreed to write her in.
But things happen. Time gets away from you. Shows pile up and as we all know, Anne never made it to Lima, OH. Then, when Ryan promised the press that there would be no guest stars for the first half of this third season, we were sure that would be the end of Anne's chances.
"I'm meeting with Anne in the next couple weeks. We're not going to do guest stars at all the first half of the season, but I would love to work with her and she supposedly has the whole thing mapped out. I'm curious as to what she wants to do. I love her. I think she's great."
She WILL be great! Listen, give her all the slack you want for the Oscars, but when she sang, she was impressive. No doubt. Plus, this would be a great time for an obscure relative to show up. Someone who will help Kurt get on the path for the rest of his life.
Get it down, Murphy! Put that writing team to work for her!!!
