GLEE's Jane Lynch will wed her longtime girlfriend, Dr. Lara Embry, according to published reports. Embry is a psychologist who made news last year for her involvement in a custody case with a former partner that made headlines in Florida. For her role in the case, Embry received a Justice Award from the NCLR. Lynch tells the New York Times that the wedding will take place in May.
In addition to her famous stint on GLEE, Lynch is best known for her roles in the Christopher Guest film, Best in Show, and for her participation in Two and a Half Men, and The 40-Year-Old Virigin.
Following their Screen Actors Guild Award win for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, the cast of GLEE talked to the press backstage about the win, and shared why they feel the hit show has become such a worldwide phenomenon.
The 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony was simulcast live on TNT and TBS from the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center on Saturday, Jan. 23, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
Winner of the People's Choice Award for Best New Comedy, Golden Globe winner for Best Television Series Comedy or Musical, and winner of Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, GLEE, the new musical comedy series, follows an optimistic teacher who - against all odds and a malicious cheerleading coach - attempts to save McKinley High's Glee Club from obscurity while helping a group of aspiring underdogs realize their true star potential.
The show, which also garnered Golden Globe recognition, stars Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Mark Salling and Jenna Ushkowitz.
Due to the success of the first installment of the show, which aired last on December 9, FOX has already ordered a second season of the show and announced that it will soon be launching a nationwide search to cast three new roles, which will be documented on the network in the multi-part special. These newest additions will make their debut on the second season premiere.
GLEE is produced by Ryan Murphy Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan are co-creators of the series. Murphy, Falchuk and Dante di Loreto serve as executive producers, while Ian Brennan serves as co-executive producer.
GLEE returns to FOX on April 13, 2010.
