Jane Lynch is perhaps best known for her role as the abrasive Sue Sylvester on Fox’s “Glee,” but she has one ironclad rule when it comes to her projects these days: they can’t be Sue clones.
“It’s incumbent upon me to reach a little to the left or the right to make something a little bit different in each role,” said the 51-year-old actress, whose other recent roles include Mother Superior in “The Three Stooges” and the voice of Sergeant Calhoun in the upcoming animated film “Wreck-It Ralph.” “We have many things inside of us — murderers and Gandhi, we have it all inside of us,” she said during a recent interview with WWD. “I have to find a different part of myself every time I do a different role, so I’m not derivative or repetitive. I try to do something with their inner lives to distinguish them, not only for myself but for the audience. I don’t want them to say, ‘Oh, there’s Jane, she’s going to do her thing again.’”
