Jane Lynch: Glee is NOT High School Musical!

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

I had sex with you because you got me drunk on wine coolers and I felt fat that day. But it was a mistake.

Quinn [to Puck]

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?
