Lynch impressed by Ford's power

Jane Lynch has recalled how impressed she was when Harrison Ford insisted on changing the script when she appeared with him in The Fugitive.

The Glee star worked with the Indian Jones star on the now classic 1993 action film, and revealed how Harrison invited her to his trailer to redraft the scenes they shared.

Jane revealed: "I remember getting there to shoot one of the scenes in the lab with Harrison Ford, and Harrison was not happy with the script. I had just met him; he was probably the first big star I'd ever met. He grabbed me and he brought me into his trailer and we worked out how he wanted the scene to go, and we improvised together, and as we improvised he wrote it down, and took it to the director and said, 'This is how we're going do it'. And I thought, 'Wow. That's throwing your power around'.

She added: "It was a big deal to get cast in that film; I was a Chicago actor, it was shot in Chicago, and every actor in Chicago was vying for a part... and to have a speaking part with more than one scene!

"Actually, a couple of my scenes got cut, so it was a big deal. And I was paid 8,000 US dollars."

As well as starring as Sue Sylvester in Glee, Jane has a new show called Hollywood Game Night on NBC.

She revealed: "We're gonna replicate what Sean Hayes does at his house, where he invites a bunch of his friends over, a mix of celebrities and civilians, and I'm going to host it. It's going to be a lot of fun."
