While Glee‘s Matthew Morrison prepares his debut album and Lea Michele whisks away to Oz, Dianna Agron—who plays the sometimes bitchy, sometimes lovable, endlessly pregnant cheerleader Quinn—has joined the cast of Burlesque. Dianna recently sat down with Interview magazine and revealed she has a supporting role in the upcoming Cher/Christina Aguilera movie-musical, which is already destined to become the Moulin Rouge of the new decade.

The film follows a Midwestern girl (Aguilera) who moves to Hollywood to become a star, but ends up working in a burlesque club. (So, basically, it’s a PG-13 vesion of Showgirls set in LA.) We’re excited to see Dianna on the big-screen, alongside other notable names like Stanley Tucci, Kristen Bell and Peter Gallagher. But honestly? We’re surprised the film’s producers didn’t sign up the whole damn cast of the Golden Globe-winning show.


Dianna also posed for a superglam photoshoot for the mag, and we’re delighted to finally see her out of her sans Cheerios outfit and faux baby bump.

Dianna’s extracirricular activities outside of Glee club extend beyond acting. The 23-year old actress recently sold her first screenplay, which focuses on “a guy who can’t say ‘I love you.'” (Why doesn’t he just say “Ditto” like Sam Wheat in Ghost?) No word if Dianna’s planning on starring in the film as well, but we can definitely see her becoming the next Kate Hudson of romantic comedies, since Kate would rather spend most of her time starring in flops and prancing around with mysterious men.
