Lea Michele really, really wants JT to do 'Glee'

Everyone's buzzing about the upcoming Britney Spears episode of "Glee," but star Lea Michele would prefer that the pop singer's former flame Justin Timberlake drop by McKinley High.

In fact, she even begged Timberlake's current girlfriend to make him do the series.

"When I met Jessica Biel, like a loser, I asked her to tell Justin to come on our show," 23-year-old Michele, who plays diva Rachel Berry, told The Hollywood Reporter. "She was a little taken aback and said, 'Um, OK. I'll tell him.'"

Michele is convinced the "SexyBack" singer will appear on the big Super Bowl episode that's in the works - at least, she won't "stop believin'" that. Says the Broadway veteran, "I think they are saving Justin Timberlake for the Super Bowl episode. They have to be, because he is so perfect for our show. He has to be on it!"

Otherwise, she'd prefer more of the Material Girl. "If not Justin, I would hope it would be the sequel to the Madonna episode," she says of the Super Bowl extravaganza. "She has so many more amazing songs we didn't even touch."

    totally agree with frank.

    @allison: they are not high and mighty observations. they are educated notes which those of lesser and malicious intent would prey on..

    Reporters should state things as they are and as how people actually said it...adding anything else is opinion and fodder for tabloid journalism....

    1.. She didn't say she would prefer Justin over Britney.
    2. She didn't beg Jessica Beal she asked.
    3. She didn't say she was convinced she thought it might be a good time for him to be on after the super bowl

    Don't spin things. Why did you add prefer, beg and convinced, when her quotes tell what she really said anyway.

      Wow, Frank, this your first time on the Internet? Is this your first time reading something in general? Seriously, ever?
      Are you an editor, Frank? Do you run this site? Do you have the credentials to make these high and mighty observations?
