The cast of “Glee” opened up to ET at Comic-Con 2010 about the highly anticipated Britney Spears episode, and FOX show creator Ryan Murphy revealed which cast member will embody the iconic pop star.
ET spoke with fan favorites Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Chris Colfer and Amber Riley who revealed what songs they’d like to sing on the Spears episode. Ushkowitz said she’d like to perform anything from the “Oops! I Did It Again” album, while Riley wanted to belt out the lyrics to “Stronger.”
“I’d want to do ‘Circus’ and have a harness and fly around. … I’ve thought about this,” Colfer said of his ideal Spears performance.
Show creator Ryan Murphy confirmed to ET that actress Heather Morris, who plays Brittany on “Glee,” will exemplify Miss Spears for the episode. Murphy also disclosed to ET that he’s writing and directing the episode that is set to air at the end of September. Murphy added, “It’s sort of a very funny way we do Britney Spears. It’s not how we’ve done things before.”
“Glee” airs Tuesday nights on FOX.
