Jane Lynch is awesome. This is just a fact like gravity and global warming and that if you drop your toast it will always, always, always land butter-side down. She is so funny that no matter where you put her, she will get you a laugh -- be it “The L Word” or “Two and a Half Men” or “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” or all those Christopher Guest movies. She is so good that it’s easy to forget that what she does is actually really hard. It’s hard to swoop in and steal every scene. But she does it and she does it with a wink and a smile and you just know she loves it. In fact, she is so great that you wonder if the casts of the shows she guest stars in ever get nervous. Better be on your toes, folks, Jane is bringing her A-Game.
While she’s known for her deadpan-meets-smarmy genius, I’m licking my chops to see Jane stretch her chops in the new film “Julie & Julia” with Meryl Streep. Meryl will play culinary legend Julia Child and Jane will play her sister. Jane + Meryl + Food = I’ve had dreams that weren’t this good. Also, every time I look at Jane and see that twinkle in her eyes and grin on her face, I just know that if you were ever to get – shall we say – extra special private time with her, damn, that woman would absolutely curl your toes. Like I said, awesome. Happy weekend, all.
