quinn fabray on gleeGlee fans haven't seen Dianna Agron -- aka Quinn Fabray -- since last season's finale. But just because the stunning blonde actress has been out of sight definitely doesn't mean she's been out of mind. Not only is Dianna rumored to make a return appearance to the show later this year (guess Quinn will hop a train from Yale to Manhattan?), but now there's buzz that she may be up for an even more mature role ... the part of Kate Kavanagh in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

Okay, okay, so E.L. James' lips are sealed and the production heads have only just hired a screenwriter. Still, that doesn't mean there can't be at least a shred of truth to the rumor that Dianna's name is being thrown around! After all, she'd be a pretty darn good fit, right?

Not only because she's done a helluva job portraying an opinionated, sassy, and super-smart blonde on Glee. But Dianna's clearly interested in -- and capable of -- moving from Glee into more mature work. She just wrapped the 2013 mafia drama Malavita, which stars Tommy Lee Jones, Robert De Niro, and Michelle Pfeiffer, so depending on how that does, I wouldn't be surprised if producers took note and called her in to read for the role of the razor-sharp aspiring journalist/Anastasia Steele's roommate.

It sure as hell would be a coup! Could set her up for a major career evolution! Then again, I'm sure that there are many young, talented actresses just like Dianna who are vying for that same opportunity. The list of actresses who have already had the chance to prove they've got dramatic acting chops to take on the part is even longer. And I wouldn't be surprised if the real front-runner right now is Blake Lively. (Something about her just SCREAMS Kate Kavanagh to me.)

Still, Dianna's certainly not a long shot. Let's hope they give her a chance, as more grown-up Gleeks like me would be thrilled to see her in the part.

Would you like to see Dianna Agron cast as Kate Kavanagh?
