"She wants to play Chris Colfer's lesbian aunt," Ryan Murphy said. "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."
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.
