Kate Hudson, a familiar face to those who love watching romantic comedies, is currently scheduled to appear in a multi-episode guest role on FOX’s hit musical drama “Glee”. According to the NY Daily News, Hudson will portray Cassandra July, a dance instructor at the fictional New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts, where Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) is studying this season. For Michele, working opposite Hudson was apparently quite a thrill.
“I’m so obsessed with [Kate Hudson],” Lea explained to ET Canada in July. “She’s one of the greatest comedic actresses right now and I just think she’s so great.”
Michele’s excitement bubbled over into a photo tweeted by writer and series co-creator Ryan Murphy, who has recently been posting an array of “Glee”-oriented info over the past few weeks. Murphy recently tweeted that one of the first songs tackled during the opening of season four will be “Chasing Pavement” by Adele. That’s sure to make fans of the songstress more than a little happy.
However, Kate Hudson isn’t the only Hollywood A-lister who has signed on for a brief stint on FOX’s insanely popular program. “Sex and the City” alumnus Sarah Jessica Parker is also slated to make an appearance later this season. Like Hudson, her guest spot is rumored to span several episodes. US Weekly reports Parker will play a Vogue journalist who takes an interest in Rachel and Kurt. Beyond this, details are sketchy.
“I really think having Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson come in for our fourth season is so exciting,” Michele told People magazine. “I think I’m more excited for this season than ever before.”
