Considering both are brilliantly funny women, with a love of short blonde hair (and the ladies), it's no surprise that Jane Lynch is often mistaken for Ellen DeGeneres. Now the "Glee" star is revealing how she used the celeb confusion to her advantage when time came for the Emmy Awards to hire a host!
In a new commercial for the September 18th ceremony, which honors the best of television, Jane busts out an excellent Ellen impersonation. One that she used (along with a small amount of subterfuge) to help lock down the gig. "I am tickled pink to be hosting the Primetime Emmys," Lynch previously said. "I'm looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit."
And if the pressure of hosting the biggest night in TV wasn't enough, Jane is also nominated for Outstanding Comedic Actress in a Supporting Role, a category she won last year, for her performance as the venom-spewing Sue Sylvester on “Glee.”
