The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

Hudson’s char­ac­ter in Glee is ‘‘mean and petty’’. In the lat­est sea­son, Hudson (pic­tured) and Sarah Jes­sica Parker join the show. Hudson plays a New York dance in­struc­tor who will teach mu­si­cal the­atre wannabe Rachel Berry, por­trayed by Lea Michele. Jane Lynch says fans are in for a treat when the two char­ac­ters clash. ‘‘I hear she’s do­ing just great and I read the scripts and they’re hi­lar­i­ous,’’ Lynch says. ‘‘She’s mean and petty and yet there’s a heart there too. She’s re­ally good. She gives Rachel a re­ally hard time.’’ Lynch, speak­ing at the Com­edy Cen­tral Roast of Roseanne Barr in Hol­ly­wood, is close friends with comic star Barr and would love her to ap­pear on Glee. Barr ap­pears to share Lynch’s en­thu­si­asm. ‘‘I’m ready to be­come a les­bian to get on there,’’ she quips. Last sea­son, Lynch’s char­ac­ter Sue Sylvester was preg­nant. Sea­son four will show the cheer­lead­ing coach cop­ing with the per­ils of moth­er­hood. ‘‘Mo­men­tar­ily I’m nice. I’ve just given birth to a beau­ti­ful baby girl who has Down syn­drome and her name is Robin,’’ Lynch says. In other Glee news, Ryan Mur­phy, the man who helped cre­ate the se­ries and other suc­cess­ful shows, will be hon­oured for his im­pact on TV with a spe­cial Emmy Award in Novem­ber. Mur­phy will re­ceive the In­ter­na­tional Emmy Founders Award at a New York gala on Novem­ber 19 in recog­ni­tion of his TV shows, which in­clude Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story and the up­com­ing sit­com The New Nor­mal.
