SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Sarah Jessica Parker has had a longstanding association with Vogue magazine thanks to her famed Carrie Bradshaw character in “Sex and The City,” but her guest arc on “Glee” too will have a major connection to the fashion bible.
“Sarah Jessica Parker is gonna be running Vogue.com,” “Glee” co-creator and executive producer Ian Brennan told AccessHollywood.com at Comic-Con on Saturday.
According to Ian, Sarah’s character will be kookier than we’ve seen the actress before.
“That’s sort of where we encounter this character, who’s sort of frazzled, eccentric, hilarious,” he told Access. “It’s gonna be good.”
The producer confirmed Sarah Jessica’s storyline will have her encountering both Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) in New York City, and with Kurt having missed out on attending his dream school, could an internship be the reason the fashionable teen crosses paths with the actress?
“We’ll see,” he said.
Darren Criss told Access he hopes Kurt’s new storyline could lead Blaine into an SJP interaction.
“I’ve had a good ride, sort of hanging on to Chris’ coattails. If I could continue to do that, that’ll be great… And if that yields work with Sarah Jessica Parker, I’ll be thrilled. That’d be so cool. I love her,” he told Access.
As for Kate Hudson, Ian revealed to Access her unique character name – Cassandra July.
“Kate Hudson will play Cassandra July,” he laughed. “And she’s gonna be able to sing and dance. It’s going to be pretty awesome. She’ll be Rachel’s dance teacher at NYADA and it’s gonna be good.”
Asked about Kate’s new role in her storyline, Lea told Access she can’t wait.
“I’m super excited about that,” Lea said.
And the actress said you can expect to see Rachel in some spandex-esque fabric at the start of the coming season.
“I know I’m going to be in a leotard in the first like, five scenes of the show,” she smiled.
A Glee-otard, perhaps, Access asked.
“Well, no, just Rachel Berry in a leotard, so I’m gonna have to make sure it’s nice and comfortable,” she laughed.
