Kelsey Grammer + David Hyde Pierce = Rachel Barry's Two Gay Dads on Glee? Yes or No?

There's a lot of news about casting stunts on Glee. Every week, you hear [insert actor's name here] supposedly scoring a guest appearance. Names like Javier Bardem, Katie Holmes and Justin Timberlake have come out. Some of the rumors are so absurd that Cory Monteith had to twitter a denial of it.

It's no secret stunt casting sparks interest for any TV show. And inspired by all these crazy news, I thought I'd pitch for my own stunt cast rumor for Glee, too.

Who knows? This could actually happen.

Kelsey Grammer & David Hyde Pierce 
We've never seen Rachel's gay dads on the show, haven't we? And at some point, they will have to make an appearance. Who do you have in mind playing the roles?

Well, I have two and I think they would be perfect for it: Kelsey Grammer & David Hyde Pierce.

I can already imagine it. Together, they're going to be a riot. As gay dads of Rachel, they're going to cause a lot of ruckus. These two have an amazing working chemistry, having them back on TV playing a gay couple would actually be a stunt casting COUP!

And as a bonus? Kelsey and David are seasoned theater actors who CAN sing! If there's anyone who can relate to Rachel's character, it's them.

Watch these two on their hit show, Frasier, from a few years back, as they find themselves awkwardly inside.... a gay bar:

So, what about it, Ryan Murphy? Think this will work?
