Jane Lynch on Glee, TV, and 'Happy Accidents'

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

It's fall, so a new crop of TV pilots are beginning, and many of them center on female characters — many of which are young or on the prowl for husbands.

Sue Sylvester, the bossy, overly-confident cheerleading coach on the popular musical sitcom, is arguably one of the most unique and interesting characters to grace prime-time television in recent years. That's partially thanks to good script-writing, but mainly because of the talented actress who portrays Sylvester, Jane Lynch.
