Jane Lynch talks life after “Glee,” Catholic guilt and crushing on Susan Sarandon
By Chris Azzopardi
You better believe Jane Lynch can sing, and even if you don’t, “I think by the time you buy the ticket and come to the show, you hope I can sing! You’ve got your fingers crossed!” the “Glee” alum said of her touring act “See Jane Sing,” cracking her signature booming laugh.
Lynch is best known as iconic cheer coach Sue Sylvester, who tormented McKinley High for six seasons of Fox’s musical-dramedy behemoth “Glee,” which brimmed with all sorts of songs — just not many sung by Lynch herself. There was, of course, the playful homage to Madonna, when Lynch donned black lace for a frame-by-frame remake of the Queen’s video “Vogue.” But on “Glee,” the 55-year-old Emmy winner was better known for her tyrannical outbursts and hair taunts (poor Mr. Schuester) than she was for breaking into song.
