[ # ] Jane Lynch crossed everything off her bucklet list thanks to Annie!
June 10th, 2013 under Broadway, Jane Lynch, Sean Hayes

Last night Jane Lynch wowed us when she sang Little Girls from Annie at the Tonys and I spoke to her about starring in the Broadway show at a set visit for her upcoming NBC game show Hollywood Game Show right before she left to do it.
Lynch will be hosting Hollywood Game Night starting on July 11th at 10p and I asked what was left on her bucket list because she has done TV, movies, hosted the Emmys, won one and now can add hosting a game show to the list. She told me, “I don’t have a bucket list.” She then explained, “It was Broadway, it was the last thing on it. I thought a Broadway musical was preposterous, in terms of fantasy.”
Well that fantasy is now a reality until July 14th. So how did it happen? She told us, “I didn’t seek out Annie. It kind of just feel into my lap. Things happened perfectly, it just showed up one day.”
And another thing that happened perfectly was before she sang Little Girls on the Great White Way and on The Tonys, she sang it on Glee. Here’s a little tidbit about how that happened, creator Ryan Murphy did that on purpose for her to cross promote her Broadway musical debut. And she admitted, “It’s a perfect song for Sue Sylvester too.” There is a lot of Miss Hannigan in Sue Sylvester if you think about it.
As you might remember in 1982 Carol Burnett played Miss Hannigan in the movie version of the musical; and the lendary comedian also played Lynch’s mom on Glee. So I wanted to know if the former head of the oprhanage had any words on how to run the place now. Lynch said, “She was the first person to text me and say, ‘Congratulations, enjoy it.'” Then she added that Burnett, “is the best.”
And Jane Lynch is up there with Carol Burnett when it comes to be being the best out there in the comedic world. Something you will really see her shine at when Hollywood Game Night makes it debut next month. I honestly think that the NBC game show will be the biggest hit of the summer. Everyone in the family will enjoy it and then after the credits roll, they will want to play the games with their friends and family. I know I have played a few with my friends already, and I will be honest I sucked just as bad them. But that is the fun about Hollywood Game Night. So mark your calendars to watch the show on July 11th, I promise it will be the latest addiction of your TV viewing and you are not going to want to miss celebrities and non-celebs go all out in the spirit of competition as they play games we can all play at home. The best part is we get to see them make fools of themselves. Who doesn’t love that? And who won’t love this show?
What more do you need from great television? Nothing, so make sure to watch it. And tell your friends and family to too, so that you can play these fun embarrassing games with them when the episodes end.
