Hathaway, 28, had been confirmed to appear on Glee to play the role of a lesbian aunt of Kurt Hummel, the character that made Chris Colfer win the best supporting actor on Sunday’s Golden Globes.

“We just finalized a deal with Anne tonight to come onto the show; she’s already created her role.” Glee creator Ryan Murphy told People.

“She wants to play the lesbian aunt of Chris Colfer. Because everyone needs a lesbian aunt.” Murphy said, adding that Hathaway was not the only Hollywood star who wants to join Glee.

“They always do, I can’t even think of who. But it’s so sweet. I think they support the show because it’s about the arts.” He said.

On the other hand, Jane Lynch was named best supporting actress for her role in Glee as coach Sue Sylvester, who also won the same award at Emmy for the same role.

Meanwhile, Glee was awarded as the best comedy or musical show for two consecutive years.
