Michael Musto says it best in his Village Voice interview with Jane Lynch: she’s everywhere — and it’s a good thing, too. I mean, we can’t keep watching her as Joyce Wischnia on our L Word DVDs forever, no matter how great the scene where she proposes to Phyllis in the nude truly is.)
Lynch first popped up on our radar playing the hilarious butch dog handler Christy Cummings in Best in Show, a role that obviously wasn’t much of a stretch for her.
Now she’s part of the ensemble for Nora and Delia Ephron‘s Off-Broadway hit, Love, Loss and What I Wore, Musto asks her if she’s replacing Rosie O’Donnell, to which Lynch says, "I know they’re gonna give me the butch lesbian to play!"
It’s because she does it so well, and says she’s "very attracted to feminine women."
When asked if she’s always been out, Lynch says:
While she can currently be seen as Sue Sylvester, the merciless, media-happy cheerleading coach on Glee, Lynch reminisces about her roles in other Christopher Guest films in addition to Best in Show. Her favorite role, she tells Musto, was the porn star-turned-folk singer Laurie Bohner in A Mighty Wind.
It seems that Lynch’s personality isn’t all that different from most of her characters. While she’s played gay plenty of times (it was sort of hard to buy her as Julie Child‘s newly-married sister in Julie & Julia, wasn’t it?), it’s her sense of humor and candidness that is always consistent. Her involvement in any show is basically enough to get me to watch (smart move, Fox). How about you?
