Glee‘s Jessalyn Gilsig Wants Bette Midler to Guest Star
With all the celebs flocking to the set of Glee for their guest spots, one of the show’s stars, Jessalyn Gilsig, says there’s one icon she’d love to see join the cast for a little song and dance.
“Bette Midler should be on the show,” said Gilsig, who plays Terri Schuester, at the Costume Design Guild Awards Thursday. “I’d want her to be my aunt or something. You can imagine Bette Midler as a kid. She must have been one of these Glee kids. She must have been so misunderstood and struggled so much, but she’s driven the same way Rachel is driven. I think she would be a good fit.”
Still astounded by the overwhelming success the show has seen, Gilsig says the cast couldn’t be happier. “It hasn’t even been a full season,” she says, adding with a giggle, “maybe we should quit while we’re ahead.”
Also excited about costar Matthew Morrison‘s upcoming album, the actress says, “He can do anything from rap to a folk song with a ukulele. I’m just like ‘When are we doing a duet on your album?’ He hasn’t asked me yet,” she jokes. “But fans want to hear it.” –Jessica Herndon
