'Glee': Idina Menzel 'would love' to play Rachel's mom

michele_menzel.jpgMany " Glee" fans have whispered and speculated about Rachel Berry's family for months.

But we still have never met Rachel's parents -- her gay dads or her biological mom -- but what if when we do meet mommy, she's played by Broadway babe, Idina Menzel?

Seems Menzel, best known for her role as Elphaba in "Wicked," is game.

Menzel's husband, "Private Practice" star Taye Diggs, told Fancast.com this week that he and his wife are admirers of both "Glee" and Lea Michele, who plays the young Ms. Berry. He said he knows Idina "would love" to do the show.

The couple is actually friendly with Lea, who starred on Broadway in "Spring Awakening" during her pre-"Glee" days.

So, yeah, this all seems like a super solid idea.

Are you hearing this, Ryan Murphy? What are your thoughts, Gleeks?
