Jane Lynch Brings Some Glee to Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live

Jane Lynch, the epitome of the ensemble actress, topped off her opening monologue on Saturday Night Live with a song that jokingly claimed her character, cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, was the only reason to watch Glee.

Lynch, who's also starred in SNL alum Christopher Guest's ensemble mockumentaries, sang what she maintained should be the Fox series' theme song — co-written by two bottles of Jose Cuervo... read more

Ricky Gervais is assembling a diverse, star-studded cast for his upcoming film, This Side of the Truth — and he just added four more talents to his roster, starting with Tina Fey.Along with the 30 Rock star, Gervais has also tapped Christopher Guest, Jeffrey Tambor and Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman (aka the PC man to Justin Long's Mac) for the flick. They'll be joining a cast that already includes Jennifer Garner and Jonah Hill, among others. The film imagines a world in which lying doesn't exist (seriously). When a dorky "loser" (played by Gervais) invents the concept, his own world, not surprisingly, changes exponentially. What's your take on the lineup? Are you ready for a Gervais-led film? Or wish he would stick to the small screen? — Anna DimondUse our Online Video Guide to get some Extra clips of Ricky Gervais. read more

DVD Tuesday Walk Hard This Is Spinal Tap and A Mighty Wind I got the music in me Its the first day of 2008 and Im more than a little surprised that the musical biopic parody Walk Hard The Dewey Cox Story is tanking so dismally Make no mistake I think its a flawed comedy but when its cooking its flat-out brilliant And it got me to thinking about one of my favorite music-business send-ups of all time A Mighty Wind 2003I dont inherently love parody especially not the lazy bone-stupid kind of parody epitomized by the sorry likes of the Scary Movie franchise But A Mighty Wind is a worthy successor to the granddaddy of all music-parody pictures the utterly brilliant This Is Spinal Tap 1984 Which should come as no surprise given that A Mighty Winds writer director and multitalented performer Christopher Guests rsum goes back to yes Spinal Tap A Mighty Wind chronicles the staging of a memorial concert in honor of pioneering folk-music impre read more

For Your Consideration: Christopher Guest's Latest Has Crazy Buzz

Harry Shearer and Eugene Levy, For Your Consideration; Christopher Guest (inset)

If you ever happen to meet Christopher Guest, the multitalented auteur behind a string of wince-inducing, documentary-style satires, there is one thing you must not do: Call his films mockumentaries. Although the actor/author/director/composer helped pioneer the genre — first as a writer and performer (the 1984 cult classic This Is Spinal Tap), and later as a director, too, (beginning with 1996's Waiting for Guffman) — Guest detests the word. "Don't get caught saying mockumentary to Chris," warns Catherine O'Hara, who has starred in four of his films, including his newest read more

Season-Finale Scoop from Kyle XY's Dad!

Matt Dallas and Bruce Thomas, Kyle XY

For months fans have wondered, "Who is Kyle XY? What is he?" In the end, might this seemingly supernatural being with the rather super abilities be just a long-missing milk-carton kid named Noah Peterson? That is precisely what's proposed in the opening minutes of the ABC Family series' first season finale, airing tonight at 8 pm/ET. But it can't be that simple, right? Right?! TVGuide.com spoke with Kyle's "dad," Bruce Thomas, about the switch in parental units ahead. TVGuide.com: I just watched the season finale where Kyle's real parents show up, so I guess we're all done here, eh? The series is over?Bruce Thomas: [Laughs] Yeah, no more need for the Trager family! We're out of the picture! I actually thought about that this m read more

Lovespring's Tiffany Gives Good Phone

Jennifer Elise Cox, Lovespring International

Perhaps you know her best as the big-screen Jan Brady, but Jennifer Elise Cox is rapidly eclipsing that memorable characterization with her current gig on Lovespring International, Lifetime's improv series (airing Mondays at 11 pm/ET) about a dating service staffed by people who really shouldn't be staffing a dating service. As Tiffany, Cox gives indifferent, gum-snapping receptionists a bad name — ironic, seeing as how her phone-interview manner is as friendly, if not frisky, as our own. TVGuide.com: So, are you ready for me?Jennifer Elise Cox: Yes, I'm completely ready! So excited! TVGuide.com: Oh, please. read more

Jane Lynch Enters the Dating Game

Jane Lynch, Lovespring International

Who put the overly amorous boss from The 40 Year Old Virgin in charge of a dating service?! Part of the credit goes to Will & Grace's Eric McCormack, one of the executive producers of the Lifetime series Lovespring International (premiering tonight at 11 pm/ET). In this improv comedy, Jane Lynch plays Victoria, the head of an "elite Beverly Hills" dating service... based out of Tarzana, California... whose staffers are as pathetic as its pretend pedigree.
