Kristin Chenoweth to Play Dolly Parton on Broadway? PLUS– ‘Wicked’ Movie, Returning to ‘Glee’ & Supporting LGBT While Being a “Jesus Freak”

The immensely talented and utterly charming Tony Award winning singer-actress Kristin Chenoweth sits down with Larry King on the Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now” to talk about her new album ‘Coming Home’, the prospect of returning to “Glee”, being a “Jesus freak” and the possibility of playing Dolly Parton on Broadway.

Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth dished to Larry King about introducing the “Glee” cast to old musicals, and Chris Colfer’s priceless reaction to meeting her, “I can remember Chris Colfer saying, ‘This is like working with Jesus!'” Kristin also told Larry she’d love to play the queen of country, Dolly Parton, “When she very first met me, she said, ‘You could play me!’ and I thought, ‘I could play you!'”

Kristin Chenoweth talked about who she’d play in the ‘Wicked’ movie — and who she wouldn’t, “I would love to be in it somehow, just not one of the midgets.” She also dished on getting fired from an early job for her support of LGBT rights, “They asked me to step down, and I said, ‘Well, you’ll have to go ahead and fire me,’ and they said, ‘We’d really like for you to just step down.’ I said, ‘No, that’s okay. You can just go ahead and fire me.'” (clips below)
