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.”
