Lea Michele Lands Gritty Role on Her Favorite TV Show
“Glee” star Lea Michele is dropping her good-girl image for a gritty new role.
Michele will appear in the sixth episode of the final season of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.”
She announced the news via Twitter, adding that the drama is her “favorite show.”
Lea followed up the tweet with a picture of her on set with her "favorite person" director and producer Paris Barclay. "This is so cool" she gushed.
EW confirmed that Michele will play Gertie, “an empathetic truck-stop waitress and single mother, who connects with Gemma (Katey Sagal) during a difficult time.”
The Season 7 episode is set to air Oct. 14.
Lea isn’t the only star to appear on the show this season. A few weeks back, FX announced that Courtney Love is also joining the cast... as a preschool teacher!
