[ # ] Would you want Jane Lynch on your Hollywood Game Night team?
July 18th, 2013 under Jane Lynch, Sean Hayes

Are you ready for another round of Hollywood Game Night tonight on NBC at 10p? Well you better be because Valerie Bertinelli, Cheryl Hines, Sarah Chalke, Yvette Nicole Brown, Rob Riggle and Matthew Morrison are all trying their luck at the game that tests your pop culture knowledge in fun ways that you can play at home with your friends and family.
Now when it comes to the celebrities that are competing tonight on the show, the host Jane Lynch told us that Hot in Cleveland’s Bertinelli really gets into the game. So how is Lynch as competitor when she plays during her personal games nights off-camera? On a conference call she told us, “I love Game Night, you know, I’m a pretty competitive person at it. You want me on your team. You do not want to play against me.” Then she explained, “I think that Sean (Hayes) knew that I was very familiar with all the games and although we did create all of our own games for this but we used Sean’s night as the template.” You see the show creator Sean Hayes has been having game nights at his house for some time now and Lynch was one of the players. So one night when he was over at her house for dinner, he mentioned the show to her. As soon as he told her about it, she asked if she could host the show and the rest is Hollywood history.
So that was a memorable moment for her, what moments does she remember about filming the primetime game show? She responded generally by saying, “There were great moments. There are wonderful funny, crazy moments in every episode. Everybody’s always jumping up and down and high fiving and shaming each other and it’s a lot of fun.” Then she got more specific with, “Dax Shepard calling on the judges as if they exist. Well we do have judges, I guess, going judge you have to look at this. Martin Short falling off the couch every time the band starts to play as if it was a shock to him. Amy Poehler and Jason Sudeikis getting a little bit drunk.”
So those are some of her favorite moments, but which Hollywooder surprised her the most. She told us, “Well, Fred Armisen is very low key and that’s deceptive because everybody’s jumping up and down around him that perhaps you think he’s not very game and he was one So of the smartest of them all and he was fast. Maybe not a lot of volume but he was fast and to the point and did very, very well.” Things we are going to have to look for tonight and during the upcoming weeks, so make sure to tune in to see that and to learn some new games you can add to your own list.
Hollywood Game Night is not only about the celebrities, there is one non-celeb on each team. Was it tough for them to play with people who could be answers to the questions they are being asked? She revealed, “Well the thing that happened again game nights and this happens at every game I go, to including Sean Hayes’ at his house, is that it’s such a great equalizer. You forget who’s the celebrity and you forget who’s the civilian because you just want to win that point and it’s everybody playing together.”
Something you see as soon as it is time to play the game. So tune in tonight and every Thursday at 10p for the funnest hour of summer television that continues even after the credits roll.
