Jane Lynch to host 'Hollywood Game Night'

 

Jane Lynch

 

Hilarious comedian and 'Glee' antagonist Jane Lynch will be adding a new accolade to her resume: game show host.

Lynch has signed on to host NBC's upcoming game show 'Hollywood Game Night,' where celebrities hang out and play pop-culture-based games with non-celebrity contestants. The series is supposed to capture a "cocktail party atmosphere" filled with humor, off-the-cuff comments and an all-around good time. The series will offer celebrities being themselves, out of their element, much in the vein of 'Password' of decades gone by.

Contestants and celebrities alike will relax in a party atmosphere, including drinks, edibles and a house band. No word yet on who will comprise the band, but it seems like a good gig for a well-known group that wants to return to the limelight.

Eight episodes of 'Hollywood Game Night' have been ordered by NBC, though there's no word yet on when the series will debut. Given society's endless appetite for star-gazing, I expect this show to be a smash-hit.

NBC alternative president Paul Telegdy released a statement regarding Lynch joining the project:

"With Jane Lynch on board as our host, we now have a key component in place that will further enliven the sheer fun of a raucous Hollywood party that will include real everyday people. Her exuberant wit and ability to think quickly will be the perfect match for our show which will give viewers a fresh look inside the off-set lives of their favorite celebrities — and allow them a chance to win money as well."

Hey, I'd like to be a contestant! Sounds like a blast.

When asked about the exciting new gig, Lynch added: "The format is sure to provide a lot of unexpected results that will keep everyone off-balance and entertained." Lynch is now best known for her role as Sue Sylvester on 'Glee' but also has a recurring role on 'Two and a Half Men.'
