Back when she was traveling the country with the national tour of Les Miserables, Sutton Foster made sure to stop by Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, Calif., home of her favorite TV series: Gilmore Girls.
Now, the Younger star says in a new interview with Philadelphia magazine, she can hardly believe that she’s going to return to the lot — but this time, as a cast member.
“I have a picture of me in Luke’s Diner” from that 2000 trip, Foster tells the publication. “I’m going to pretty much lose my s–t being on this show. It’s a thing, and when I get to hang out with Lorelai, I’m going to freak out.”
Per the magazine, Foster will shoot her Gilmore scenes at the beginning of March. Still no word on whether she’ll play Michelle, Foster’s Bunheads character also created by Gilmore boss Amy Sherman-Palladino, or a new role.
