Jane Lynch

What can we say? Jane Lynch rules. She received a Golden Globe nomination last year for her portrayal of the delightfully slimy cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on Fox’s hit comedy Glee; this season Lynch starred in the show’s spot-on send-up of Madonna’s Vogue video, which took the Internet by storm. The hilarious actress has played a variety of memorable characters during her career, including a lecherous poodle trainer in Best in Show and Tina’s nefarious lawyer on the L Word. Her latest role is playing a newlywed: the statuesque actress recently married her partner, psychologist Dr. Lara Embry, in a Memorial Day ceremony in Massachusetts. -CB
