Get ready for something “wicked cool” as Watch with Kristin and The Aussielo Files confirm that Idina Menzel is in fact in talks to join the cast of Glee as a recurring character. Though it has been hinted that Lea Michele looka-alike Menzel might potentially play Rachel Berry’s birth mother, it seems we’ll have to settle for seeings her as rival glee club coach to Vocal Adrenaline. But we’re not fussy. When it come to Idina Menzel, we’ll take what we can get!
Known for originating the role of Elpheba in the Broadway musical Wicked, Menzel will be following in the footsteps of her former Wicked castmate, Kristin Chenoweth, who guest-starred in a previous episode of Glee earlier this season.
If everything works out, we can expect to see Menzel in the remaining season one episodes to air this coming spring. We’ll definitely be looking forward to not only an Idina Menzel appearance but also getting more of glimpse into the inner workings of Vocal Adrenaline.
How about you guys? Already pumped for April?
