Glee Scoop: Jane Lynch on Sue's Job Change, 'New Lease on Life' and Killer Fantasy Sequence
As teased in the promo for this Thursday’s Glee (9/8c, Fox), the former McKinley High villainess — who tendered her resignation earlier this month in the wake of the school shooting — has rebranded herself as a female Jack LaLane.
“I retreat to 23 Hour Fitness [to] teach aerobics,” Jane Lynch tells TVLine. “I’ve got a new lease on life, baby!”
But as the old adage goes, you can take the acid-tongued antagonist out of McKinley but you can’t take McKinley out of the acid-tongued antagonist. As Lynch reveals, Sue starts “stalking” the school.
“I’m back at the bleachers and I sing ‘Little Girls,’” she says of the abrasive Annie anthem. “In this fantasy, I kill them all by the end of the song.”
The sequence will prove a nice warm-up for Lynch, who is set to make her Broadway debut next month as Miss Hannigan in the Great White Way’s current revival of Annie. “I’m over the moon,” she says of slipping into the iconic role. “It’s a favorite of mine. I know every breath of it.” (Reporting by Scott Huver)
