It might seem like a weird mix, but "Glee" star Jane Lynch thinks the Fox hit and the Super Bowl make a great team.
Speaking during a conference call about the highly anticipated "Glee" episode set to air on Super Bowl Sunday, Lynch said the two are not mutually exclusive.
"[F]ootball is very masculine and basically, to me, anyway, a metaphor for war," Lynch said. "And then you’ve got these 'light in your loafers' guys, and I’m talking about even the straight guys, singing and dancing. I think it’s a terrific world we live in and I love seeing these two things come together."
Fans will get to see an even meaner Sue Sylvester on the Super Bowl episode, she added.
"We’re kind of doing an episode of Glee that is on steroids and writ large," she said. "Sue Sylvester is a little bored with her routine, even though she has kids riding around on BMX bikes and jumping through fire. "
For example, there's a scenario set to Katy Perry’s "California Gurls" where Sylvester wants to shoot Brittany out of a human cannon - although she doesn't get away with it.
"[Sylvester] has two hissy fits where she just rips two rooms apart," Lynch said. " So it was definitely Sue Sylvester on the war path."
The show will take on Michael Jackson's iconic "Thriller," and Lynch said she enjoys the big productions.
"I look forward to getting the script all the time," Lynch said. "These shows, where we’re doing Britney or Madonna or [the] Super Bowl where it’s special, they’re very fun as well and there’s always a lot of anticipation."
