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."
