Anne Hathaway Officially in Talks for Glee

Glee is one step closer to getting another A-list star on their hit show. Anne Hathaway is thiiiiiiis close to closing a deal to star in the musical series.

Anne has been talking up a storm about how badly she wants to be on the show. And when a big star like Anne talks, producers listen. She’s already set up a meeting to talk about her ideas for the show and creator Ryan Murphy admits he’s “curious” to see what she has in mind.

He told MTV News: "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."

Anne has previously spoken of her desire to appear in 'Glee' saying: "I would love to be on 'Glee'. Can I make a confession? In my head I've written a part for myself! It's so arrogant and obnoxious, it's like, 'Ryan Murphy no one else wants to be on your show.'

“But in my head I've cast myself and I know which song I'd sing. 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 'No One Is Alone' from Stephen Sondheim's epic show 'Into the Woods'."

Glee has had some seriously huge stars on the show, the most notable being Gwyneth Paltrow. She even won an Emmy for the guest role!

Though Gwyneth Paltrow won an Emmy at last week’s Creative Arts Emmys, Glee walked away empty-handed during last night’s televised broadcast. Modern Family completely dominated every single category, so Glee didn’t stand a chance.

In 2010, the show won a Golden Globe Award for "Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy". The Glee cast won the "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series" award at the 16th Screen Actors Guild Awards.

In July 2010, Glee received nineteen Emmy Award nominations, including "Outstanding Comedy Series", "Outstanding Lead Actor – Comedy Series" for Morrison and "Outstanding Lead Actress – Comedy Series" for Michele; it won four of these, including "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series" for Lynch and "Outstanding Guest Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series" for Neil Patrick Harris.
