Lea Michele Wanted Skylar Astin as Brody on 'Glee'!

Lea Michele Wanted Skylar Astin as Brody on 'Glee'!

Lea Michele looks darling in denim as she heads to Bellacures Nail Salon on Saturday (October 20) in Studio City, Calif.

The 26-year-old actress recently spoke to THR about the success her friend and former Spring Awakening co-star Skylar Astin is having with his new film Pitch Perfect.

“I wanted them to see him for Brody and for so many characters along the way but he just has to stop being a movie star and doing so many movies!” Lea said. “I’m his biggest fan, he’s one of my best friends, and I couldn’t be happier for him and his success. He’s amazing in Pitch Perfect. The minute I can get him on Glee, I want him on the show.”

Also pictured inside: Lea picking up snowboards later in the day with her boyfriend Cory Monteith.

I’m sure he’ll rather choose Glee, a sinking ship, over all these movie roles he has been getting recently.

But I’m very glad they didn’t give her what she wanted – I don’t feel like having the whole cast of Spring Awakening on the show.

@Jenny: Skylar hates Glee, and this fake *****. But at least he’s getting free promotion for his movie. She’ll move onto another friend soon enough, once he stops pandering to her whims like Groff did

Oh gee. I guess now we know who’s running this show. No wonder Glee has turned into the pesky Rachel Barry Hour. They have all the hot men pining for HER a s s out of all the gorgeous women there. Whatevs. I stopped watching last season anyways. It’s gone downhill.

@ugh: Skylar and Jon Groff are Lea’s good friends. You know the cast all still remain very close. And if Groff has stopped “pandering,” why was he there with Lea when she was taping Jimmy Kimmel? You must be one of “those” Spring Awakening fans. SMH

Skylar would have been so much better for the Brody character. I’m a BIG Rachel fan and I can’t warm up to the actor that’s playing him right now. I was so looking forward to Glee’s NYC scenes but now I’m just meh about it all. So disappointing.

Did anyone else hear her squeaky, perky voice while reading that quote? She talks like a Kardashian.

Haters r going to hate. She looks great and btw stop assuming that u know them and their relationship and start making up stuff

Lea looks pretty :) she is still very close friends with the Spring Awakening cast so stop making up rumors

this dude is plain fugly

Can’t wait for her album to come out. Lea looks amazing as always

Haters from a certain fan base are snarky today, she looks fine and was hanging out with skylar just yesterday

@Excuse Moi: Somehow I don’t believe that you’ve actually stopped watching the show… otherwise your bitterness is extra pathetic. Can’t wait for the album!

Lea is picking up a snowboard! She’s going snowboarding with CORY!!!

why there are only two pictures of lea and cory? i almost didn’t notice it. they are really cute i bet they were heading to cory’s hometown :)

What a surprise, Lea tries to throw her weight around on set. She’s so arrogant.

I wish Hollywood would stop trying to sell this Jewish chick to us as if she’s meagan fox, Lea Michelle is a butter face

Lea and Cory make a cute couple. Btw Lea is beautiful

@Eek: acts like one too

@ullo: they will go wherever Fox told them to get papped. Your bunch are pathetic

@ffs: You’re still delusional. lol

She’s such a wannabe.

If the snowboard she is carrying is for her, it is definitely way too short. The people at Burton should know better ;-).

They’re good friends, they went through a massive experience together and they’re all a ridiculously talented bunch. It’s actually the case for almost every Srping Awakening cast everywhere, the London cast have gone on to big things, the girl who was the Australian Wendla is in Nashville now. Anyway, it happens all the time, people who are established in a show or doing movies campaign to get ppl, how is this just a Lea thing? She’s just a good target for ppl to spit their bile at over the internet, save that for the ones who have affairs with married men maybe.

Humm I see a man !

I did too!

She is totally a bit#ch! Dean Geyer must surely be very happy to hear her statements! You can prefer work with some people but if they are not in the project is a total disrespect with those who are doing their best for the show. BTW Dean Geyer is hotter than Skylar!

there she goes! lovely!

@WideAwake: LOL Skylar Astin is a million times talented than that Aussie Idol contestant.


I watched the pic for a while like who is he, then i read the caption and i was like oh. She’d make a cute guy

I think it’s kind of rude to her to say she wanted him to play Brody. This would imply she was disappointed about the final choice that Dean Geyer got the role. Dean Geyer fits perfectly.

To Honestly!, will you shut the hell up. Her father is Jewish, her mother is Catholic, and she was raised Catholic.

Why don’t you talk about full-blooded Jews being Jewish, like Logan Lerman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Alden Ehrenreich, etc.
