Idina Menzel heading to 'Glee'Meet Will Schuester's new rival.
Broadway star Idina Menzel is in negotiations to join Fox's "Glee" as a recurring.
Menzel, who is expected to appear in all of the remaining nine episodes of the season, will play the coach to glee club Vocal Adrenaline, the McKinley High glee club's main competition.
Menzel had said she is a big fan of "Glee" and its young star Lea Michele, also a Broadway pro.
Because of Menzel and Michele's similar musical theater background and strong resemblance, fans had been lobbying for Menzel to appear on the show as Rachel Berry's (Michele) biological mother.
