Anne Hathaway wants to star on Glee -- and she's already come up with her role.

"She wants to play Chris Colfer's lesbian aunt," Co-creater Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter backstage at the Golden Globes after his Fox hit won best comedic television series. "She presented the whole episode. She came up with the songs."

"I love her and would definitely be interested," added Murphy, who tells THR Hathaway approached him "on her way to the bathroom."

Later that night, they "finalized a deal with Anne to come on to the show," Murphy said, adding that she will likely sing Stephen Sondheim.

Co-creator Brad Falchuk also spoke about Glee's much anticipated Super Bowl episode, which will guest star Katie Couric: “It's huge. There's pretty intense makeup, a couple of unexpected kisses in there. A huge number with flaming whips, BMX bikes."

It's the "biggest budget" episode of all time, he added.
