Gleeâ€™s Jessalyn Gilsig Wants Bette Midler to Guest Star
February 26, 2010
With all the celebs flocking to the set of Glee for their guest spots, one of the showâ€™s stars, Jessalyn Gilsig, says thereâ€™s one icon sheâ€™d love to see join the cast for a little song and dance.
â€œBette Midler should be on the show,â€ said Gilsig, who plays Terri Schuester, at the Costume Design Guild Awards Thursday. â€œIâ€™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 sheâ€™s driven the same way Rachel is driven. I think she would be a good fit.â€
Still astounded by the overwhelming success the show has seen, Gilsig says the cast couldnâ€™t be happier. â€œIt hasnâ€™t even been a full season,â€ she says, adding with a giggle, â€œmaybe we should quit while weâ€™re ahead.â€
Also excited about costar Matthew Morrisonâ€™s upcoming album, the actress says, â€œHe can do anything from rap to a folk song with a ukulele. Iâ€™m just like â€˜When are we doing a duet on your album?â€™ He hasnâ€™t asked me yet,â€ she jokes. â€œBut fans want to hear it.â€ â€“Jessica Herndon
