Jane Lynch Lends Voice to THE SIMPSONS

Jane Lynch

It was probably only a matter of time given how in demand she is, but it’s fun news nonetheless: Jane Lynch will get animated for THE SIMPSONS. Entertainment Weekly reports the Emmy winning and Golden Globe nominated Glee actress will play Roz, Homer’s new assistant at the power plant in the “Replaceable You” episode.

The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean told EW, “This woman seems terrifically nice, but then it turns out she’s just completely undermining him every step of the way and gets his job.” How very Sue Sylvester. Apparently Homer will team up with Ned Flanders to find a way to take Roz down.

Lynch recorded her lines last week and her episode is slated to air early next season.

The Simpsons airs on FOX Sundays at 8pm eastern/7pm central.
