Idina Menzel in Talks to Join the Cast of 'Glee'


Idina Menzel


She is set to play the coach of rival glee club Vocal Adrenaline, a role that will possibly appear in the remaining nine episodes of season one.

Tony Award-winning actress Idina Menzel is in advanced talks to join the cast of "Glee" when the comedy-musical series returns from its four months hiatus in April next year. Bearing a striking resemblance to Rachel Berry's depicter Lea Michele, the 38-year-old star has been confirmed not to play her long-lost mother though.

Idina, instead, will get into the shoes of the choir director for New Directions' rivals, Vocal Adrenaline. The character, reportedly, would potentially appear in the remaining nine episodes of season one. And should a deal is reached, Idina will be fifth Broadway star to appear in the show, following the footsteps of Victor Garber, Debra Monk, Kristin Chenoweth, and Jonathan Groff.

Idina Menzel is widely known for originating the role the green-skinned Elphaba in "Wicked", which won her a Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical back in 2004. Her former "Wicked" castmate Kristin Chenoweth guest starred in "Glee" earlier this season as an alcoholic glee-club has-been named April Rhodes. Kristin is expected to recur later this season, opening the door for a reunion with Idina in the FOX's hit TV series.
