Although “Glee” is reportedly courting “American Idol” Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez to guest star on the FOX hit, she’s not the only former “Idol” contestant the musical show is looking to book. Pia Toscano, the booted-too-soon ballad singer from Season 10, is also reportedly in talks to join “Glee.”
According to E! Online, the 23-year-old Toscano was contacted by “Glee” brass to read for a part on the show. Although a source says “they absolutely loved her,” it didn’t work out because they changed the role. Now, they’re hoping she’ll be able to come back in the future when a different, more appropriate role arises.
Toscano will still make her acting debut, though — she’s starring in a feature film called “Grace Unplugged” as Alyssa, an aspiring musician who “battles with maintaining her Christian fath while trying to make it in Hollywood.” It’s actually based on her own life, and the part was written for her. Sounds like she’ll be a natural!
