Funny lady du jour, Jane Lynch, is hosting Saturday Night Live this (spoiler alert)… Saturday!
Known by most as Glee’s acerbic, tracksuit-sporting cheerleading coach, Sue Sylvester, Ms. Lynch is finally getting mainstream praise for her comedic chops. But some of us have admired Jane’s improv genius and delivery for years thanks to her earlier appearances in Christopher Guest comedies like Best in Show and A Mighty Wind. More recently, she stole scenes from the bros in bromantic flicks like Role Models. And last year, Jane was seen guffawing loudly alongside Meryl Streep in Julie & Julia.
And before all of that? Jane’s big break was in a Frosted Flakes cereal commercial!
Well, we all gotta start somewhere…
There should be no doubt that Jane Lynch can rile up a humorous ruckus on SNL, but that’s only so long as the writers and cast can keep up with her. I gotta say: if these awkward promos with regular, Fred Armisen, are any indication of how Saturday’s show will go… well, my beaming smile might start to twitch and crack into a concerned, Stepford Wife-style grin:
Ehhhhh… Well, just tune in to Saturday Night Live on NBC this Saturday to see if J. Lynch gets you LOLzing! *fingers crossed* Musical guest is Bruno Mars.
