Jane Lynch: Glee is NOT High School Musical!

by at . Comments

No offense, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.

But Glee star Jane Lynch scoffs at the notion that the new Fox show is similar to the Disney series High School Musical.

"I don't know that it is anti-High School Musical," she says in the video below. "But it's much harsher. It's snarkier. It's not as sappy, if you will."

While expounding on the comparison, Lynch also revealed a spoiler about next season:

"I mean, High School Musical was good and everything, but it was kind of surface level sappy. These kids [in Glee] are going through real issues."

Such as? For example, she says, a character is coming out of the closet this fall.

Glee Quotes

Beiste: Dr. Jones said the new end of world date is September 27, 2014
Brittany: That gives us like two whole years of giving love and brutal honesty to everyone we know.

Will: I hate to say it but I think as long as you keep being yourself, your life is probably going to be a constant string of 'don't belongs'.
Unique: I know. I should probably start getting used to it.
Will: No, no. You should never get used to it. All great changes come from people who refused to get used to what was accepted but wasn't right. Slavery, gay rights, New Coke.
