Glee‘s fire-breathing badass Jane Lynch will show off a whole new side to herself on the Jan. 10 episode of The Cleveland Show when she debuts as Roberta’s brusque, no-nonsense new teacher Ms. Eck. To mark her toonful new gig on the Family Guy spinoff, the Golden Globe- nominated actress graciously agreed to participate in the following mini-interrogation.
Are you a fan of Family Guy?
JANE LYNCH: I love Family Guy. I am also appalled and shocked by Family Guy. And I am proud to say that several children in my family under the age of 10 get it and love it, too.
How is Ms. Eck similar to Sue Sylvester?
LYNCH: They both lack filters and say whatever awful thing comes into their mind. In-the-head-and-out-the-mouth syndrome.
And how are they different?
LYNCH: Ms. Eck lacks Sue’s icy Nordic aggression.
Your first reaction upon viewing yourself in ‘toon form?
LYNCH: Ms. Eck may have the largest, most disproportionate butt in cartoon history.
