Jane Lynch talks Emmy gig and 'The Three Stooges'

The small-screen meanie gets to praise people for a change

Posted on

Glee star Jane Lynch doesn’t get many chances to showcase her musical skills on the Fox hit, so she’s hoping for a splashy production number when she emcees this year’s Emmys on Sept. 18. ”Any opportunity I get to sing and do very easy dance steps, I’m all for it,” says Lynch. She won’t have much time to work on choreography for the big night, however, since she’s heading to Atlanta for the summer to shoot Bobby and Peter Farrelly‘s The Three Stooges, in which she plays Mother Superior, a nun who raised the titular trio. Says the actress, ”They were brought up in our orphanage, and then fast-forward to 35 or 40 years old and they’re still there! It’s a really funny script. I laughed out loud a lot.”
