JANE LYNCH’S KEY TO SUCCESS: “I DON’T HAVE THAT BURNING AMBITION ANYMORE”

jane5

Jane Lynch’s career is at its peak thanks to her acclaimed work as manipulative (but at times, thoughtful) cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on Glee. After years of doing scene stealing work on projects like Two and a Half Men and Role Models, Lynch explains one reason for her overwhelming (and relatively newfound) success.

“I don’t have that burning ambition anymore,” says Lynch. “It’s funny, once I let go of (such questions as)  ‘is the parade going to pass me by’ or ‘when am I going to get mine’ and ‘will I ever find love,’ ‘will I ever live in a nice house,’ ‘will I ever drive a nice car’ –  it all happened.  But my internal shift happened first, and I don’t think that happens for everybody.  There’s a lot of miserable people out there who have everything they think they want.  Mine came after I let go of the steering wheel, if I could use another metaphor…I have much more equanimity than I had five years ago.”

JAMES MARSDEN VS. ALEXANDER SKARSGARD IN “STRAW DOGS”

straw2 Opening September 16th, Straw Dogs will try to carve its own ground, especially since the original film, directed by Sam Peckinpah and headlined by Dustin Hoffman, is a story that’s pretty hard to shake.

This time out, James Marsden is a Hollywood screenwriter who returns to his actress wife’s (Kate Bosworth) small town and tries his best to fit in, but unfortunately his spouse’s ex (True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard) has a violent way of greeting the couple.

CHRISTINA APPLEGATE IS ‘UP ALL NIGHT’ WITH NEW SITCOM

NUP_144555_0383.jpg Christina Applegate, whose early acting career featured a storied run on Married with Children, must have been a bit heartbroken when the critically acclaimed sitcom Samantha Who? was unceremoniously canceled by ABC.

Now she’s back with Will Arnett (co-star of the short-lived sitcom Running Wilde) in Up All Night, as they play a married couple who are a bit overwhelmed by parenthood.

During the NBC TCA sessions, Applegate explains why it was a bit detrimental to take two and a half years off from acting (this was before she landed the lead in Samantha Who?):

SAM WORTHINGTON’S EARLY ACTING DAYS WERE ALL ABOUT A GIRL

samw21

It’s the standard story for any actor, musician, writer, or anyone involved in the creative arts – it all started with a girl.

Before he was the best thing about Terminator Salvation and had his life forever changed with Avatar, Sam Worthington, he was a working actor in Australia.  And before he was an actor, he was a bricklayer.

It was an ex-girlfriend who unwittingly put him into the acting track, and although Mr. Worthington has told this story to countless journalists and late night talk show hosts, it’s still a pretty cool anecdote.  Listen to the actor, whose next film The Debt opens Wednesday, elaborate on his early initiation to the National Institute of Dramatic art:
