Way back before Glee, no one really knew Jane Lynch’s name. Back then (oh so long ago!), if we were excited to see a movie or a commercial (who remembers those Washington Mutual commercials where she staples a piece of paper to some guy’s head!!) because Jane Lynch was in it, we’d get a lot of crinkled noses, followed by, “Who?” But now, after all this Glee success, most people know her; nonetheless, by “most”, we definitely mean “not all.” Her name is Jane Lynch, people. And she’s been in a lot more than Glee. But, really, you definitely already knew that – you’ll see.
Back then, we had problems trying to figure out where she’d pop up next. And, running through her extensive IMDb CV, we saw an awful lot of roles on an awful lot of television shows – but we couldn’t remember seeing her in them, or we never watched the show. And then we thought, if our dog deserves a fansite (she really does – check a nifty woodcut version of herself here), then Jane effing Lynch should have at least one site where people can go to for news and notes and upcoming appearances and awards earned and whatnot. So, a combination of curiosity, boredom, and curiosity caused by boredom led us to create Her Name is Jane Lynch. You are welcome.
We’re based in Los Angeles, but based on the web traffic (thank you Google Analytics), we’ve traveled as far as Australia and Hong Kong.
