American Idol Alum Pia Toscano Tapped for Glee Role?

What is it about American Idol alums transitioning into actors these days?

According to E! Online, Idol Season 10 contestant Pia Toscano has landed her first film role and — like Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez — may be heading back to TV for Glee!

Glee’s showrunners reportedly reached out to Pia to read for a part in the show’s next season. Apparently “[t]hey absolutely loved her,” but the part was later altered. Still, they’re reportedly hoping to find a place for her in future episodes, so the book’s not closed on that possibility just yet!

Meanwhile, Pia will be starring in a film called Grace Unplugged as Alyssa, a role which was written with her in mind. “I'm so excited about my very first acting role in Grace Unplugged,” Pia said of the role. “I'm honored to be a part of this amazing film, and my character is a reflection of me, which makes this special for me.”
