Lynch: Sylvester set for hissy fit


Jane Lynch says Glee fans should prepare themselves for a major Sue Sylvester hissy fit

Jane Lynch says her Glee character Sue Sylvester throws “a hissy fit the likes of which no one has seen before” when the show returns.

The Fox hit is taking a break in the US until a special post-Super Bowl episode on February 6 that features guest shots from Gwyneth Paltrow and Katie Couric, and the students offering their version of Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

“It’s got so much firepower,” the Emmy-winning actress said. “There is so much going on in the show that is crazy and funny and wild.

“I have a hissy fit the likes of which no one has seen before, where I try to destroy the locker room and principal’s office. I try to shoot one of my cheerleaders from a cannon.”

Jane talked about her show while promoting another project – an educational campaign on teenage mobile phone misuse that she is doing for LG Mobile Phones.

The star has made a series of short videos about texting while driving, sexting, cyber-bullying and other misuses of mobile phones by teenagers. The vignettes are available on YouTube and the company’s website.

Before being called by LG, Jane acknowledged being guilty of one of the habits she’s being paid to discourage – she used to text while driving around California.

“I knew I should not be doing it,” she said. “It was really just the luck of the Irish that kept me from hurting myself or somebody else.”

:: Glee returns to UK screens on January 10.
