Chris Colfer 'Very Excited' By Possible Bette Midler Glee Appearance

One “Glee” star is “gleeking” out about Bette Midler’s rumored guest spot on the hit FOX series.

“I heard she might have a close encounter with my character,” Chris Colfer told Access Hollywood at the junket for his new movie, “Struck By Lighting,” which he wrote and also stars in.

“I’m very excited about [it], because I’m a huge Bette Midler fan!” the actor added.

On Friday, Bette addressed the rumors about joining the lengthy list of guest superstars on the FOX comedy.

“I don’t know. [Ryan Murphy] never called me,” she told Access’ Shaun Robinson at the junket for her new movie with Billy Crystal, “Parental Guidance,” when asked when fans will see her on the series. “He mentioned it, but… I’m still waiting for the call. But, it’s fine!”

If Bette does wind up on the show, she already has an idea of who she’d love to play.

“I love [Jane Lynch’s Sue Sylvester character]. She’s hilarious,” Bette told Access. “Maybe I could play [Sue’s] evil sister!”
