Best known as Rachel Berry on “Glee,” Leah Michelle is one of the big names rumored to be getting ready to move to Charming for the upcoming season 7 of “Sons of Anarchy.” According to an April 7 report on International Business Times, “Glee’s” exectutive producer Paris Barclay recommended the singer to “Sons of Anarchy” creator Kurt Sutter.
Here’s how it went down. Barclay tweeted a picture of Michelle attending the Kids Choice Awards to Sutter with the caption, "Yo, @sutterink! She ready for CHARMING, or what?" Sutter seemed to like what he saw. The showrunner replied, "Smoking hot. All class. Charming could use a p**** upgrade."
“Glee” is winding done and with the recent news that show’s season has been shortened, the actress-singer is looking for new work. She has made it known that she is game to try new things and has expressed her desire to star in "American Horror Story: Freak Show."
A role in “Sons of Anarchy” could give the girl with the goody-two-shoes image a chance to play an edgier character. But who would she be if she joined the SAMCRO family?
Love Interest for Jax
It’s not likely anyone could ever replace Tara in Jax’s affections. Still, he is a man with needs and she is similar enough in looks to fit his tastes.
Old Lady for the Rumored Aaron Paul Character
Rumors have flowed for weeks that Sutter wants to cast Aaron Paul, possibly as Jax’s long lost brother. Michelle could be Paul’s character’s old lady.
One of the Cara Cara Escorts
SAMCRO has left the drug business behind and moved on to the escort business in partnership with Nero. Michelle could play one of the high priced escorts.
In any of these parts, Michelle would need a makeover along the lines of the transformation Sandy went through in Grease. Any of the roles would give the actress the chance to play a more mature and edgier character. Who do you think Leah Michelle should play if she joins SAMCRO and moves to Charming?
"Sons of Anarchy" season 7 returns on FX in September.
