Transcript:Jane Lynch Interview - Paul and Glee
Rebecca Murray from About.com Hollywood Movies at the American Premiere of Universal Pictures' Paul.
Jane Lynch- 'Pat Stevenson' in Paul
So this one was actually a role not written for a man - like you always end up playing in films.
Jane Lynch: "Yeah, I know! How about that? This is a real woman who actually exists, too, and I hear might be here tonight. She's the proprietress of the A'Le'Inn Inn. And it's on the alien trail in Nevada and it's where people think that aliens can be found. So these guys are just kind of crazy about the possibility of aliens. They've just come from ComicCon and they stop at my place, of course, to have some of my specialities."
Did you meet her?
Jane Lynch: "I have not met her. I'm hoping to."
Why are audiences going to want to see this?
Jane Lynch: "Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, I think, and Seth Rogen are probably three reasons why you'd want this. And I think there are cameos - I have one of them - with a lot of people, a lot of comic people, so I think it will be fun that way. It's a cast of many funny people. And Kristen Wiig - I'm a huge fan and she's hilarious in the film, too."
Are there aliens out there?
Jane Lynch: "It would be naive to think that we're by ourselves out here in the universe. It's an infinite universe and to think we're the only beings would be kind of silly. So these are people who I think have more curiosity than the rest of us. I don't think about it too much, you know? But now I am. You're asking me this question and I'm pondering it."
What can we expect from the original songs in Glee?
Jane Lynch: "Well, the original songs are amazing. They're really cute. It's regionals and they're pretty ballsy going out there and doing original songs. And, of course, The Warblers are doing a couple of songs. And then my group, Sue Sylvester's group Oral Intensity, does a kind of a pandering song for the Tea Party candidate judge which is called 'Jesus is my friend,'"
