Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway must've made a good impression on 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy at the Golden Globes this weekend, because he's already confirmed she will appear on the award-winning show this season and that he liked the character idea she pitched.

"She created her own character, and we ran into her, and I said 'Really?' and she said 'Yes!' so we're going to do that," Murphy told E! Online. "We love her."

Executive producer Brad Falchuck added, "[With] someone like her, it's sort of hard to say no!"
