The new series of Glee is storming the ratings both in Australia and the US -- no doubt helped by its glittering array of top-notch guest stars.
It became a top-trending topic on Twitter and discussion of the episode continued long after its broadcast.
So, with all the enthusiasm and exposure the show offers, it's hardly surprising that celebrities are hammering at the door in an attempt to get a shot at Glee fame-dom.
Iconic Aussie film director Baz Luhrmann (Australia, Strictly Ballroom) has made his interest in getting involved in the show known during an interview with MTV, saying that he has spoken with show creator Ryan Murphy.
"I'm a great fan of Glee. I spoke to [show creator] Ryan. I tried to find a moment to do an [episode] with him," he divulged.
"I'd love to do that. I think those kids are phenomenal. If I could, I'd love to [direct an episode]. I'd like to contribute to that, because I do think that is what I hoped when I tried to smash the door 10 years ago."
It wouldn't be the first time that Luhrmann has dabbled in television -- one of his first brushes with the small screen was as an actor in the classic Australian television drama A Country Practice in 1982.
He also directed a TV documentary about the Tony Awards called Great Performances in 1994.
"So I mentioned it on Twitter, and everyone is retweeting it and saying, 'That would be great!'" he recently told the publication.
