Will Idina Menzel Fly Over to GLEE?

Inside Track   Will Idina Menzel Fly Over to GLEE?
 
Rumors of Idina Menzel stepping into the role of Lea Michele's mom on FOX's Glee just might become a reality....if Idina Menzel has anything to do with it!


A few weeks ago, Michele (as prissy song bird, Rachel Berry) tore it up on Glee's version of "Defying Gravity", a song made famous by Menzel's Tony-winning turn as Elphaba in Wicked.  Which then set the whole theatre-blogosphere atwitter with the hopes we'd one day see a "Menchele" duet.

While promoting his own TV-turn as Dr. Sam Bennett on ABC's Private Practice, Menzel's husband Taye Diggs told Fancast: “I know that she would love that.” He goes on to say, "They know each other, so we knew that [resemblance] existed far, far before the TV world did.” (and also because he's not blind!)  “We are just so happy to see a lot of these theater kids get the opportunity to do some television work.”

Us too, Taye!  So listen up Glee Gods--bring these two Broadway babies together!
