Jane Lynch gets Hollywood star

Glee star Jane Lynch has been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

The actress who plays mean cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in the hit musical TV series was given star number 2,505 on September 4 and was joined by Glee creator Ryan Murphy.

Ryan said of his show's star: "She is the hardest-working person on the set... she makes everybody better and everybody happier. She is one of the comedy greats in our business - a true class act."

Jane, who also starred in The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Role Models, told Variety how similar she felt she was to Sue.

She said: "I do feel that softness for the vulnerability and the innocence in our world, including my own. I have, in the past, been a warrior in that way. And how am I not like her? I'm not openly mean. I think my cruelty hides beneath the surface a lot more than Sue Sylvester's."

Jane also spoke about the upcoming tribute episode to Glee star Cory Monteith who played Finn in the show and who died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol in July.

She said: "I don't think you fill a void. We're going to honour his memory in our third episode of the season, one of the most beautiful things I've ever read written by Ryan and Brad (Falchuk) and Ian (Brennan), the three writers who wrote the first season who are the beating heart of this show.

"Speaking of beating hearts, Cory was, in life and his character, the most empathetic, heart-centred person I've ever met. And he's going to be missed big time."
