Jane Lynch on Hosting Emmys As Her Glee Alter Ego: 'A Little Bit of Sue Goes a Long Way'

Jane Lynch — and not her Glee alter ego Sue Sylvester — will be hosting the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards next month.

“I think a little bit of Sue goes a long way,” Lynch told reporters Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills.” There are some Sue ideas floating around out there, but I think we’ll leave her track suit on the Paramount lot.”

Lynch divulged few details about her stint, except to say that she hopes it’ll include at least one song-and-dance number. She’s also determined not to make viewers “cringe, or at least [make] very few people will cringe.”

And while Lynch confessed that she “really enjoyed” Ricky Gervais’ controversial Golden Globes hosting stint last January, she has no plans to launch any full-scale attacks against her Hollywood peers. “[I] don’t have that snarkiness that Ricky has, although I am a huge fan [of his]. I laughed many times at the Golden Globes.”

The Emmys will air on Sunday, Sept. 18 on Fox.
