Shears eager to get Scissor Sisters on Glee
Jake Shears has applauded Scissor Sisters fans for starting an online campaign to hook the band a cameo appearance on Glee - because he'd love to be a part of the hit show.
Actor Chris Colfer, who plays gay student Kurt on the series, recently revealed he'd love to see the Filthy/Gorgeous hitmakers on the programme and Shears admits he's keen to follow in the footsteps of Britney Spears by landing a role.
Shears is hoping his friendship with Colfer and a Facebook group with 5,000 members campaigning for the cameo will result in show boss Ryan Murphy handing the Scissor Sisters an appearance.
In a post on the band's Facebook page, he writes, "This campaign to get us on GLEE is awesome, we're very appreciative to the fans & we love the show! We've been into it since it first aired, and then met Chris & some of the Glee cast.
"Chris comes to our shows & feels a real connection with the band & I think he sees a proper fit between Glee's aesthetic & a lot of our music. I know this would be a blast for the band, fingers crossed!"
