Jane Lynch to host DGA Awards

Jane Lynch is set to become the first female host of the DGA Awards at its 66th annual ceremony on Jan. 25 in Los Angeles.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jane Lynch as host of the DGA Awards for the very first time,” said DGA President Paris Barclay (who has directed Lynch on a number of Glee episodes). “I have known Jane for years, and have envied her quick wit – and her extraordinary height. She always makes the job of directing her a joy, and I look forward to her helping us honor the year’s best in film and television.”

Previous hosts included Carl Reiner — who led the ceremony an incredible 23 times — and Kelsey Grammer, who hosted for the past two years.


Jane Lynch explains how to cope with 'A.C.O.D.' -- VIDEO


If you title your movie A.C.O.D., you might have to set aside some money in your budget for educating the public. After all, what is A.C.O.D., and will I need a vaccination before seeing it?

Fortunately, A.C.O.D. — which stands for Adult Children of Divorce — features a cast that can make such marketing extremely painless and fun. Adam Scott plays the Adult Child in question, a restauranteur who attends his younger brother’s wedding only to discover their divorced parents (Catherine O’Hara and Richard Jenkins) are still at war and to learn that his childhood therapist (Jane Lynch) turned his troubled family life into a book. Amy Poehler co-stars as Scott’s bitter stepmother, and Jessica Alba plays one of the other study subjects whose childhood has been used for literary fodder.

In the public-service announcement, Lynch explains in soothing tones how to cope with A.C.O.D: “The way to feel normal is to remind yourself that the person next to you is way more damaged.”

'Afternoon Delight' trailer: Juno Temple is a stripper/nanny with a heart of gold -- VIDEO

When your marriage hits a lull, mix it up a little bit! If you happen to be Rachel (Kathryn Hahn), mixing it up hinges on your decision to invite a stripper to be your live-in nanny.

Rachel doesn’t fit into her life, with her social-media-obsessed housewife friends and a distant husband, and decides to take matters into her own hands by learning to get in touch with her sexuality under the keen tutelage of a 19-year-old “sex worker.”

Afternoon Delight also stars Josh Radnor as the uninterested husband, Jane Lynch as a dry, to-the-point therapist and Juno Temple as the stripper/nanny.

The film, which won the directing award and was nominated for the Grand Jury award when it premiered this year at the Sundance Film Festival, goes wide later this year. Check out the trailer here:

'Wreck-it Ralph' Blu-ray: Jane Lynch on her curves, stealing the guys' roles, and working with Harrison Ford on 'The Fugitive' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

After four seasons as Sue Sylvester on Glee, Jane Lynch has gone from sitcom guest-star extraordinaire and comic dynamite in films like Best in Show and The 40-Year-Old Virgin to one of television’s most recognizable and celebrated actors, hosting the Emmys and Saturday Night Live. But way back when, she paid the bills with her clipped Midwestern voice, in numerous commercials and animated cartoons. “I made my living doing voiceovers, and getting an animated film was always the brass ring of being a celebrity,” says Lynch. “So now I’m just really grateful that I’m a celebrity and I get to do it. I’ve always loved it.”

In Wreck-it Ralph, the Disney animated blockbuster that mashes together worlds of familiar-looking arcade classics, Lynch voices Sergeant Calhoun, the voluptuous battlefield leader from the Halo-type game, Hero’s Duty. Sue Sylvester would be proud — judging by her gruff demeanor, Calhoun might just be related to R. Lee Ermey’s sergeant from Full Metal Jacket — but she’s not dressed in anything from Sylvester’s wardrobe. Calhoun’s leather and armor outfit shields a body that makes Lara Croft look like Peter Pan.

It’s no wonder that goody-two-shoes Fix-it Felix (Jack McBrayer) falls for her. When big-lug Ralph (John C. Reilly) grows weary of his villainous role in his video-game and sneaks into Hero’s Duty to earn a medal, he threatens to unplug both games forever. Calhoun and Felix team up to bring Ralph back home before their worlds are officially Game Over.

With Wreck-it Ralph already available as a digital download and due on Blu-ray and DVD on March 5, Lynch spoke to EW about her resemblance to Calhoun, her hopes to reunite with Christopher Guest, and how much she was paid to act opposite Harrison Ford 20 years ago. Then view an exclusive behind-the-scenes extra that explains the inspiration for Calhoun’s terrifying alien world.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congratulations on the Best Animated Film Oscar nomination for Wreck-it Ralph. Do voice actors get to attend the Oscar ceremony?
JANE LYNCH: They do not, sadly.

That doesn’t seem fair. I was really looking forward to seeing you walk the red carpet dressed as Sgt. Calhoun.
I did that on Ellen. You’ll have to check that out. I went as Sgt. Calhoun for Halloween and I wore it on Ellen. READ FULL STORY
