Could Glee be getting another American Idol?

As we already reported, AI runner-up Jessica Sanchez has been in talks to join the list of the show's season four guest stars, which also includes Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker.

And now, a source confirms that Sanchez's Idol pal Pia Toscano has met with Glee showrunners.

As it turns out, Glee reached out to Toscano to read for a part on the show. "They absolutely loved her," the source says. "She's a huge fan of the show."

Unfortunately, showrunners changed the part but are interested in having Pia back in the future for a different role on the hit Fox series. Fingers crossed.

While Toscano won't be making her Glee debut just yet, we can exclusively report that the 23-year-old singer has landed her very first feature film role!

"I'm so excited about my very first acting role in Grace Unplugged," Toscano tells us of the upcoming gig. "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."

In Grace Unplugged, Pia plays the part of Alyssa, a role that was written specifically for her and that's actually loosely based on Pia herself. The film is about an aspiring musician named Grace who battles with maintaining her Christian faith while trying to make it in Hollywood.

Grace Unplugged is set to start filming this month in Birmingham, Ala.
