After coming in second on American Idol this past season, Jessica Sanchez is headed in a new direction — actually, make that New Directions. Our sister site TVLine reports that Jessica, 16, is in talks to join the cast of Fox’s Glee in a recurring role after wrapping up the American Idols LIVE! tour.
Jessica’s role has yet to be formed, but now that Rachel (Lea Michele), Mercedes (Amber Riley) and Santana (Naya Rivera) have fled McKinley’s hallowed halls, there’s a serious diva void that needs to be filled — and Jessica’s definitely got the pipes.
