Idina Menzel wants in on Glee. The gorgeous Tony-award winner, according to her hubby, Taye Diggs, told Fancast that Menzel, 38, “would love” the opportunity to play the mother of Rachel, a character played by 23-year-old Lea Michele (who bears an amazing resemblance to Menzel).
“They know each other,” Diggs said, “so we knew that [resemblance] existed far, far before the TV world did. I know that she would love that … [such casting] would be awesome.”
According to Diggs, him and Menzel, a Broadway vet synonymous with her sterling performances in Rent and Wicked, took in Michele’s appearance in Broadway production Spring Awakening, and were impressed with the 23-year-old’s talent.
