In person, Glee star (and this week’s EW cover subject) Jane Lynch is exactly the opposite of Sue Sylvester: warm, funny, and friendly. And now she’s a bona fide star: During EW’s photo shoot in New York’s West Village, the actress was mobbed like a rock star by fans clamoring to take a photo with Lynch. Even Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman stopped to watch the action. The actress sat down with EW after her photo shoot to discuss her inspiration for Sue, remaking Madonna’s “Vogue” video, her favorite Glee character (hint: it ain’t Sue), and the epic June 8 season finale (spoiler alert!).
