Character actress and comedienne Jane Lynch is the ultimate scene-stealer of comedy today. Her breakthrough came when she joined Christopher Guest's gang of improvisational comic actors in his mockumentary films, such as 2000's 'Best in Show.' She gained further recognition for her supporting roles in other comedy classics like 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin' and 'Role Models.' These days, Lynch can be seen chewing the scenery as the main antagonist on the hit Fox musical comedy 'Glee.' Lynch stars as the scheming, Scrooge-like cheerleader coach, Sue Sylvester, whose every line makes the show legitimately laugh-out-loud funny.
