RENT alum and Private Practice star Taye Diggs recently sat down with People Magazine to talk all things Sam, Addison & Naomi and whether or not he or his famous wife, Broadway vet Idina Menzel, have plans to grace the set of GLEE.
Diggs told People that "I know that she would love [to guest star on Glee]" in response to questions about fans' desire to see Menzel play Lea Michele's mother on the show.
People also reports that "Adding that Michele - who originated the role of Wendla in the Broadway play Spring Awakening - and Menzel are "fans of each other," Diggs acknowledged the pair's uncanny resemblance, saying "We knew that existed far, far before the TV world did.""
