Remember when Jane Lynch was a semi-regular presence on “Two and a Half Men“? For many TV viewers, her role in either this or “Party Down” was what got her media attention before joining “Glee” as Sue Sylvester; unfortunately, donning that tracksuit has made it harder for her on recent years to do other things.
But, a little problem known as “Glee” shifting its focus to New York City has made it easier for her to do some other things, and thanks to that, producers for the CBS show quickly came calling with an opportunity to return for a spot. While many details are still unfortunately unclear, we can confirm that Lynch will be returning for the show’s April 20 episode “Lotts Delis in Little Armenia.” (As for why the show chooses out-of-context quotes for its titles that nobody will ever remember, it’s a good question.)
Lynch is mentioned in a CBS press release as a guest star, though she is not featured in the actual synopsis (which you can see below):
“Alan stumbles upon an opportunity to make money. Meanwhile, Walden has to address his co-dependency issues.”
What in the world could Alan actually do to make money? It’s probably not something that falls within the bounds of “honest living” knowing the character, but we’ll take anything to change this guy from being the louse he has become. If you remember, at least this character used to at some point have a job and a modicum of ambition that we’d like to see back before this story comes to an end.
As for Walden and his “issues,” it doesn’t sound so good for either Kate or Mila Kunis’ upcoming Vivian, does it? Neither are mentioned as guests in this story, but we’re not too surprised by that based on the way the show flutters guest stars in and out like they are going through a revolving door of an office building.
Let’s hope that Jane brings some laughs, since nothing else about this episode stands out. Still, you can share your thoughts on it below, and click here if you want to watch the first promo from us featuring Kunis. You can also sign up to get further updates via our CarterMatt Newsletter.
