Jane Lynch Says GLEE's Sue Sylvester Will Make the Move to NYC
GLEE's pithy, power-hungry cheerleading coach-turned-principal Sue Sylvester is set to plow through New York City as this season of the FOX series continues in Manhattan.
Jane Lynch told E!: "I'm going to New York from what I understand. I haven't heard how or why, but I'm excited to see."
She continued: "I BET you [Sue] has a career change. I think it would be really cool if she goes out there to be an actress and she does a one woman show and just becomes this huge hit. All these people working so hard to become actors and performer and professionals and I just kind of waltz in and become a big splash.

FOX chairman Kevin Reilly confirmed earlier this week at the TCA event that the remainder of GLEE's current season will exclusively be set in New York City, leaving McKinley High behind. Reilly also confirmed that the sixth season of Ryan Murphy's hit dramedy will be its last.
Glee is a musical comedy about a group of ambitious and talented kids who escape the harsh realities of high school by joining a Glee club, where they find strength, acceptance and, ultimately, their voice. Last year's graduates and aspiring singers, RACHEL BERRY (Lea Michelle) and KURT HUMMEL (Chris Colfer), packed their bags for New York and enrolled at a prestigious performing arts school, NYADA, where they made new friends and learned the cruel realities of college. These naïve freshmen moved into a Brooklyn loft, signed up for internships, auditioned for Broadway shows and gained a roommate when SANTAna Lopez (Naya Rivera) moved to the Big Apple.
Since its debut, Glee has become a bona fide cultural phenomenon, received prestigious honors, including a Golden Globe Award and a Peabody Award, and singlehandedly made Glee clubs cool again. The series boasts critical acclaim, a die-hard fan base, two Grammy Award nominations, two platinum and five gold albums, more than 43 million songs and more than 13 million albums sold worldwide, two sold-out concert tours, a 3-D movie and four Emmy Awards and three Golden Globes, including the award for Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical.
Glee has attracted A-list guest stars, from Gwyneth Paltrow to Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker. This season, Demi Lovato (THE X FACTOR) guest-stars as "Dani," a New York-based struggling artist and friend of Rachel and Santana's.
