EW is reporting that Glee’s Jane Lynch will be hosting an episode of Saturday Night Live in October.
Though NBC will still not officially confirm Jane Lynch’s Saturday Night Live hosting gig October 9, Glee creator Ryan Murphy told the Hollywood Reporter at Tuesday’s Eat, Pray, Love premiere in NYC that he had a heavy hand in orchestrating this epic cheerleading routine of a schedule shift. “Saturday Night Live called to say, ‘Would you give us Jane for a week in October?’” explained Murphy. “We just don’t do that, but for Lorne Michaels, I said yes.”
Lych is one of the better character actors that have hit the screen in a long time. She should do well on SNL, as long as the writers show up and do their job.
