Lea Michele Would Do 'Anything' to Join Jonathan Groff on HBO's LOOKING
Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff could soon be reunited onscreen - if HBO will have her.
In a new interview with Pride Source, the GLEE star and Broadway vet confirmed she'd 'do anything' to join best friend Jonathan Groff on the network's LGBT series LOOKING, which was just picked up for a second season today.
Michele's even reached out to executive producer Andrew Haigh on a potential guest spot. "Once I saw the entire series, I emailed Andrew Haigh and I was like, 'Look, I loved it before, but I love it even more now," she said. "You gotta get me on the show. I'll do anything. Anything you want me to play, even if I'm in the background, I'll do it.'"
Though she's admittedly up for anything, she also confirmed she'd 'one-hundred percent' play a lesbian on the series if she were asked.
"I mean, I just wanna get to work with Jonathan. I love Jon," she continued. "I feel like everything that we've gotten to do together, whether it was "Spring Awakening" or working on "Glee" together, I just love working with him. Every time we get to play different characters together it's so fun, so I'll do anything that they want."
Michele made her Broadway debut in 1995 as a replacement for the role of Young Cosette in the original New York production of LES MISERABLES. Following her theatrical debut in LES MISERABLES, Michele was cast in the role of Tateh's daughter, the Little Girl, in the 1998 original Broadway cast of Ragtime and in 2004, Michele portrayed "Shprintze" and "Chava" in the Broadway revival of the musical Fiddler on the Roof.
Michele originated the role of Wendla in Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik's musical version of Spring Awakening on Broadway in 2006. Michele was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for her performance in Spring Awakening in the category of Outstanding Actress in a Musical.
In early 2009, Michele won the role of Rachel Berry on the FOX television SMASH hit, Glee (2009) and since the show's premiere on May 19, 2009, Michele has since received worldwide critical and public acclaim for her performance on the show.
