Jane Lynch Gets Animated For ‘The Simpsons’

Jane LynchEveryone’s always talking about what big-name celeb will be the next Glee guest star, but what about Glee stars guesting on other shows? The woman of the hour – seriously, she pops up every five seconds, probably because she ROCKS – Jane Lynch is slated to slip over to Glee’s network mate and Fox standby, The Simpsons, for a guest spot to air next season.

Of course, Lynch isn’t the first gleek to grace the cartooney classic with her vocal presence; Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley have already tested their voice-over skills. While she won’t be the first from the singing show, she’ll certainly be the most involved. The singing gleeks just popped in for a quick b-plot stint in this season’s premiere, but Lynch will take on a bigger role when it’s her turn.

She’ll play Roz, a combo of her critically praised spell as the always sunny and sweet Constance on the now defunct series Party Down and the conniving, delightfully self-serving cheer coach Sue Sylvester. Roz is Homer’s seemingly sweet new assistant, but he later finds she’s undermining his every move. Classic Sue. Hopefully her guest spot lives up to these promises; you don’t invite someone like Jane Lynch as a guest star and then use her sparingly.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
