When it came time to put together Fox Television’s annual video Christmas card for viewers, chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman shrewdly decided to turn to the woman who has arguably been the network’s MVP over the last year: Jane Lynch.
As Glee‘s cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, Lynch chews up every ounce of scenery she’s in, and even though she’s the show’s main villain, she’s impossible not to love because of her outrageous proclamations and one-of-a-kind view of the world. In this video Christmas card, Lynch channels her alter-ego even though she’s playing herself, making gut-busting observations about her fellow cast members and her own value to the network. Glee‘s Ian Brennan writes all of Lynch’s dialog for the show, and he scripted this little video as well, which Glee creator Ryan Murphy directed.
This is a laugh-out-loud vid that you just have to watch.
