Jane Lynch on The Emmys, her book and Sue Sylvester

HollywoodNews.com: Aren’t you looking forward to seeing what Jane Lynch has in store for us as host of the Emmys next month?
I think it’s great to have a female hosting one of the these shindigs and my hunch is that Jane will be sensational.
She talked to TV Guide about the gig and other topics recently. Here are some excerpts:
Q. What makes a great awards show host?
A. The ability to know when to stand back and let others shine – and to move things along.
Q. What would Sue Sylvester think of that?
A. Sue would think she should be given every award and she should be on every moment of the telecast – which is where she and I differ.
Q. Is Sue really going to run for political office on Glee?
A. Yes. She’s going to run on the platform of, ‘Let’s get rid of the arts and cut all the entitlements.’ She’s basically running as Michele Bachmann without the crazy ‘I hate homosexuals’ bit.
Q. Your memoir is coming out next month. Is it funny?
A. You’ll have a chuckle. [laughs] It’s called Happy Accidents, and my wife [psychologist Lara Embry] made it readable.

No Jane Lynch in “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: So the “Glee” kids finally found a way to get back at their nemesis, Sue Sylvester.
They cut her out of their upcoming 3D concert movie.
Series co-creator Ryan Murphy says that actress Jane Lynch, despite being shown in the film’s trailer, will not be in the version “Glee” fans see in theaters when they check out “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie,” which hits theaters on Aug. 12.
Instead, Lynch’s taped bits will show up on the DVD when it eventually hits stores, probably sooner than you think.
“We’re doing another version in a couple of weeks on DVD,” Murphy said, as reported by USA Today. “Jane will be on that. We’ll do it that way.”
The official soundtrack for “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie,” meanwhile, hits stores tomorrow. It will feature songs from the show and the movie, including Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” and Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing).”

‘Glee’s’ Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch for ‘Funny or Die’

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: On ‘Glee,’ their characters of Sue Sylvester and Will Schuester are comically at odds.
Off-screen, Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison appear to be great pals. But not in this ‘Funny or Die’ parody that has them carpooling to work.
Let’s just say that Matthew gets on Jane’s last nerve with his singing along with whatever song comes on the radio.

‘Glee’s’ Jane Lynch is getting a David Bowie makeover

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Glee’ fans will apparently soon see Jane Lynch’s character looking a bit like David Bowie in an upcoming episode.
The TV star revealed that her character is going into disguise, states Access Hollywood. “Sue Sylvester is going incognito as David Bowie today,” Lynch revealed about what was going on with filming.
While the look may be a bit intimidating, Lynch is excited for the bit: “Ryan Murphy is the evil scientist that is creating all of this and I just love him for it.”

Was Jane Lynch’s character a little too screwy on ‘Glee’ last night?

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: What did you all think of last night’s special episode of ‘Glee’ which aired after the Super Bowl?
I loved that “Thriller” zombie half-time number and the The Dalton Warblers’ performance of “Bills, Bills, Bills.” But I gotta say, I think there was some jumping of the shark in the episode when it came to Sue Sylvester, played by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Jane Lynch.
We know Sue can be outrageously mean but is she supposed to be psychotic? Homicidal?
Her wanting to shoot Brittany (Heather Morris) out of cannon during a half-time show was just plain stupid and the fact that she was allowed to take it as far as she did was ridiculous.
We also got to see her throw a gigantic tantrum at school, trashing and breaking things. It was not funny. It was annoying.
In the end, the cheerleaders in glee club quit the squad and she loses funding for the Cheerios as we learn when she is interviewed by Katie Couric who has chosen her as one of the biggest losers of the year because she failed to win the national cheerleading title for the seventh year in a row.

2010 Greggys: ‘Glee’s’ Jane Lynch is Female Star of the Year

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: It’s not like Jane Lynch suddenly became more talented this year – 2010 just happened to be the year when the world decided to really take notice.
The gifted actress who we had long loved from Christopher Guest movies including ‘Best in Show’ and ‘For Your Consideration,’ had been delivering stand-out performances in increasingly high-profile movies (’40 Year Old Virgin,’ ‘Talladega Nights’) and TV shows (‘Boston Legal,’ ‘Two and a Half Men’) when along came the role of a lifetime: Sue Sylvester in ‘Glee.’
In 2010, Jane turned 50 and found herself a superstar. She landed on the cover of magazines, won the Emmy Award for ‘Glee’ and had her talents on full display during last spring’s Madonna episode when she eplicated The Material Girl’s performance in the famous video for “Vogue.”
Through all of this mainstream success, Jane has not for a second turned her back on the LGBT causes she has been active in for so long. She was honored with the LA Gay and Lesbian Center’s Distinguished Achievement Award in November – the center’s highest honor.
She was also honored with the Outfest Lifetime Achievement Award in July and when she appeared during the festival for a Q&A, the large DGA Theatre was filled to capacity.
Jane has also been true to herself as an out actress and got a lot of coverage in May when she married psychologist Lara Embry in Massachusetts on Memorial Day.
“I really started to be known when I was 40 and I was a big les by then, I wasn’t turning back. There were stories to be told if I denied it. I didn’t have a moment’s worry about it at all.”
But that was not always the case: “I will say that when I was in my 30s and had no reason to be thinking about fame and fortune at that time, I would lay in bed and night and think, ‘How would I do this? How would I come out? How would I hide it?” I had restless nights about that. But when it came and people started to care – and kind of not care too – I’m a character actor and you’re allowed to be gay. When you’re an ingenue or a leading man it’s apparently still too hard for America to deal with. And it might not even be America, it might just be studio executives.”

2010 Greggys: ‘Glee’ is TV Show of the Year

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Gee, what a surprise, right?
A friend of mine was teasing me that it was a no-brainer that as a Gleek myself, I would choose ‘Glee’ to win the 2010 Greggy for TV Show of the Year without even considering other shows.
But the truth is, I did give this category some serious thought and the superb ‘Modern Family’ was a close runner-up. It is not only hilarious, smart and features the best acting ensemble in television, but Cam and Mitchell are my favorite TV couple (sorry Kevin and Scotty!).
Still, ‘Glee’ continued to move, entertain and inspire me in season 2 as much as it did in its first year – if not more. It just touched my LGBT heart more often than did ‘Modern Family’ and far more than any other show on television although I’m encouraged by the Teddy storyline on ’90210′ and continue to appreciate Scotty and Kevin on ‘Brothers & Sisters.’
The characters – especially Brittany and Santana (Heather Morris and Naya Rivera) are being fleshed out more and the new cast additions have been inspired – especially Darren Criss as Blaine and Chord Overstreet as Sam.
Jane Lynch’s Sue Sylvester remains intriguing as the onion is slowly peeled and we are beginning to find out what motivates this miserable woman! Lea Michele as Rachel remains annoyingly self-absorbed and brilliantly talented and her big ballad solos are always a high point for me.
Matthew Morrison as Will Schuester continues to anchor the show so well by managing to be a flawed but well-meaning (and darn sexy!) teacher.
There have been some big themed episodes like the Britney Spears one and the Rocky Horror-themed Halloween show but not too many and guest stars Gwyneth Paltrow, John Stamos and Carol Burnett were all used nicely.
But creator Ryan Murphy has wisely stuck to the core characters who were never more unified than in the Furt episode.
And finally, there is Kurt Hummel played to perfection by Chris Colfer.
We watched Kurt come out to his friends and his family last season and struggle with his feelings for Finn (Cory Monteith) who is now his stepbrother. We have been moved to tears by the love Kurt’s dad Burt (Mike O’Malley) has for his son.
But no matter how much love and support Kurt has, he still fell victim to a self-loathing bully. Football player Dave Karofsky (Max Adler) is gay himself and kissed Kurt but then [...]

‘Glee’s’ Jane Lynch responds to Ed O’Neill’s Emmy remark

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: It doesn’t look like Jane Lynch is losing any sleep over ‘Modern Family’ star Ed O’Neill’s recent comment to ‘TV Guide Canada’ that she did not deserve to win the Emmy for best supporting actress in a comedy series for her performance as Sue Sylvester on ‘Glee.’
Jane’s rep, when reached by E! Online to comment about the diss, thanked columnist Ted Casablanca for his outrage and said via email: “Thanks for being repulsed. But let it go, that’s what we’re doing.”
As I posted earlier this week, O’Neill said the Emmy should have gone to co-star Sofia Vergara who plays his on-screen wife: “I love Jane, honestly I do,” he said. “I’m dying to star in one of Christopher Guest’s movies alongside her, but I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. (Sue Sylvester) is just a one-note character.”

‘Glee’ star Jane Lynch gets dissed for Emmy win

HollywoodNews.com: Although everyone appears to love ‘Glee,’ it seems not everyone loves Jane Lynch enough to think she deserved the Emmy she won.
Ed O’Neill from ‘Modern Family’ thinks the world of Lynch and would like to work with her someday, but he isn’t convinced she earned her 2010 Emmy, states PopEater. He calls her role as Sue Sylvester a “one-note character.”
So who does he think should have won? Well of course his TV costar Sofia Vergara: “Sofia is just so, so funny. I don’t think people realize how hilarious she is. She’s so sharp with her wit, it’s amazing.”
Do you think Ed O’Neill only thinks that because his show didn’t win that category?

“Glee” captures raw emotion in “Furt” episode

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: “Glee” had me reaching for the Kleenex last night. The episode, titled “Furt,” was so good, so emotional, so satisfying.
It dealt with bullying and interwoven was a beautiful wedding and a well-written role for a famous guest star.
Here were some of the highlights for me:
In the wedding reception scene (Kurt’s dad married Finn’s mom) when Finn made a speech about having his brother’s back from now on then sang to him and danced with him, the tears rolled out and didn’t stop until we were well into the commercial break. God it was beautiful.
There were several high other points in the episode which dealt with Kurt being bullied by football player Dave Karofsky (Max Adler) who is gay himself and kissed Kurt a few weeks back.
Early in last night’s show there were some very positive actions in the way that others in the school reacted to Kurt being bullied, Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) immediately took action when he witnessed the bullying; Kurt’s friends in Glee club confronted the bully in the locker room and Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch), as principal, expelling the bully from school.
Says Sue: “Lady, this kid lays a finger on you, you come straight to me and I will expel him faster than a Thai take-out place can read back your delivery order.”
Kurt tells Sue that he doesn’t to be called Lady. She says in a soothing tone: “I’m sorry. I thought that was your name. As an apology, I’ll allow you to choose from the following nicknames: Gelfling, Porcelain or Tickle-Me-Doughface.”
