Lea Michele is officially trading in her sequins and good girl Rachel Berry persona for what will presumably be leather and a more hardcore attitude, but only for a guest appearance. Michele announced via her twitter that she will be appearing on the hit show Sons of Anarchy, "I'll be appearing on an episode of my favorite show @SonsofAnarchy! Thank you so much @Harparbar & @sutterink #SOAFX"
As it usually is these days with social media, Lea beat most news outlets to the news. This is a vast change from the show that she is best known for the musical show Glee. There she is known as the overachieving star who people love to hate at times.
On Glee, Michele plays Rachel Berry a determined, yet often misunderstood ball of talent. For her guest stint on Sons of Anarchy, she is set to play Gertie. Gertie is “an empathetic truck stop waitress and single mother, who connects with Gemma during a difficult time,” an FX representative to E! News. Safe to say his is a vast change from her usual role as Rachel Berry.
Of course fans of Sons of Anarchy were awaiting a casting announcement after the show creator Kurt Sutter hinted towards a casting announcement via twitter during San Diego Comic Con. This will the last season for both Sons of Anarchy and Glee. The final season of Sons of Anarchy debuts September 9th at 10p.m. EST on FX.
