Jane Lynch Speaks on Glee Guest Stars

by at . Comments

The Glee spoilers are coming fast and furiously these days. Follow the preceding link to learn about storylines ahead on the second half of season one.

For most fans, the focus of what's to come is centered around the show's impending big guest stars. Foremost among them: Neil Patrick Harris.

"I have a terrific scene with Neil," star Jane Lynch tells KTV in the video below. "He plays a great, kind of has-been arrogant kind of character who used to be a glee clubber and now is all bitter about any musical dreams. And he's on the school board now and wants to cut the glee club and I'm of course in favor of that.

"I love [his character] at first, but then he turns on me."

As for Molly Shannon? Lynch says her character does something no one would think possible: "She makes [Sue] cry."

Lynch added:

"[She's]  meaner than me and she is a floozy drunk who had to leave her last school for being inappropriate with the students. And she is the only person, probably on the planet, who can intimidate Sue Sylvester. At one point I tell her, Get out of my grill or I will kick you square in the vagina... she gets Sue's goat. She's the only one in the school that [Sue] cowers around."

Glee returns on April 13.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.
