TWoP: Before we get into Glee, I have to ask -- will you be back on Party Down next season?
Jane Lynch: I don't think so, because of this [Glee]!
TWoP: Is it possible at all?
JL: It's possible, yes, but I don't think so.
TWoP: Will we hear you sing on Glee?
JL: [Breaks into boisterous, old-school vibrado, then stops.] Oh, you mean on the show? I don't know! I hope I will. I'm always singing in between scenes just so Ryan'll go, 'What is that? Where is that beautiful voice coming from?' And I'll be like, [Breaks into more vibrado] 'It's me!' So we'll see.
TWoP: Why is your character so anti-glee club?
JL: She's just mean. She's heinous. She wants to break their little spirits. But she's foiled at every turn, and you'll see as the season progresses -- she indeed has a heart. She just chooses to lock it up. And the glee club threatens her light, you know, she wants to be the star. Her cheerleaders are a nationally ranked cheerleading squad, and she drives them and makes them the very best, and then all of a sudden these young upstarts start winning competitions and getting some of the intra-mural money, and I'm not getting all of it, and I don't like it at all! So I need to destroy them.
TWoP: Do you think she'll ever try to take over glee club?
JL: Oh, I have! In the fourth or fifth episode I become co-director. I put 'em through their paces.
On to the lovely and charming Jayma Mays and Chris Colfer...
TWoP: What can you tell us about your characters?
Chris Colfer: I play Kurt, and he is the fashionable soprano.
TWoP: [To Jayma] Is your character a homewrecker?
Jayma Mays: Well... no. Not so far, no. I mean, it's all about the love, right? We don't need to call it homewrecking. Other things happen with their [Will and Emma] relationships with other people on the show, so you'll see that.
TWoP: Will there be any other guest stars besides Victor Garber and Kristin Chenoweth you can tell us about?
CC: Josh Groban's coming! He's going to play himself.
TWoP: Besides "Rehab" and "Don't Stop Believing," which we know are in tonight's episode, can you tease any upcoming songs?
CC: We've got a lot of big hits -- we're doing "Push It," by Salt N Pepa, "Single Ladies," [Beyonce's] "Halo," "Walking on Sunshine"... lots of good stuff coming up.
JM: I had to sing a few weeks ago, for the first time.
TWoP: What did you sing?
JM: "I Could Have Danced All Night," did a little My Fair Lady.
TWoP: Will your character sing now, going forward?
JM: Well, let's not say I sing now, because that's misleading. But I had to sing, and I don't have a Broadway voice. But it's a comedy, right? That's okay?
TWoP: I think it is!
JM: Okay, then let's say that here and now: it's a comedy, so I had to sing.
CC: I just got to sing for the first time, too -- I sang "Defying Gravity" from Wicked.
TWoP: Oh wow, is there a lot of Broadway on the show? I was under the impression it was mostly Top 40.
CC: Umm... yeah, yeah there is a lot of Broadway.
JM: Well it's a nice mix of both.
CC: Yeah, definitely a mix, yeah.
TWoP: And lastly, do you have an Idol favorite?
JM: Me too!
CC: Yeah, Adam is the best.
JM: He's amazing!
TWoP: I couldn't agree more.
