Jane Lynch’s Overnight Stardom: A Happy Accident

If I could go back in time and have a conversation with my 18-year-old self, the first thing I’d say is, ‘Lose the perm’. Second, I would say, ‘Relax. Really – just relax. Don’t sweat it. For a long time, I was anxious and fearful that the parade would pass me by, and that someone or something outside myself had all the answers. Having finally reached a happy place – a happy accidents place – I want to share my story with others, to let them know things aren’t as bad as they fear.

—Jane Lynch, announcing the September publication of her new memoir Happy Accidents

    I hope she starts to make movies after Glee ends – she really is hilarious and dominates the screen!

    @NY152: Rent “Best in Show.” She was great in that.

    My alltime favorite Jane Lynch character was as Charlie’s psychiatrist on Two & a half Men. The way Glee writes Sue Sylvester is just annoying for me.

    Come to think of it, once Glee is done I think that Lynch would make a GREAT ‘Bob Newhart’ type headlining therapist character for the 21st century!
