As do we, Sue Sylvester. As do we!

It didn't take long beforeGlee creator Ryan Murphy and superstar Kristin Chenoweth to pull out their big guns against the disgusting Newsweek article written by Ramin Setoodeh claiming gay actors could not play straight roles convincingly.

Now, one of the Glee stars and out lesbian Jane Lynch is applauding her peers for making statements backing not only her show, but her community. She says

“The thing is, actors are actors: You can’t play gay anymore than you can play somebody who’s Catholic. Aaron Sorkin wrote a wonderful thing in the Huffington Post. I don’t think you have to slap somebody down for making an opinion that you don’t agree with. But I do think what Kristin and Ryan did was so important, and I’m glad that they said it. It doesn’t mean, ‘Off with [Setoodeh's] head.’ But I’m very glad, and I thought it was very heroic what the two of them did.”

Bravo! Classy! Well said!

    I FEEL SORRY FOR ANY ACTRESS THAT WOULD HAVE TO PLAY OPPOSITE A GAY. THINK OF HOW GREAT THE RISK OF GETTING AIDS OR ANOTHER DISGUSTING GAY DISEASE WOULD BE. IT WOULDNT BE WORTH IT OVER A FRICKEN ACTING JOB

    Re: h8terboi – They still make you? What a freak you are! A homo hater who comes on a super flamboyant gay guy's gossip website. There are psychologists who could write their dissertation on you alone. Anyhoo, I don't watch Glee (heard it's good) but Lynch was really funny in Christopher Guest's movies:)

    You WERE one of the ones screaming "off with his head" and you slammed Aaron Sorkin's article in the Huffington Post when it originally posted a couple of days ago because you thought he wasn't harsh enough on Setoodeh. But out comes Jane Lynch speaking in favor of Sorkin, and now it's all "Bravo!" "Well said!" Lame.

    Re: h8terboi
    Are you one of those "boiz" that claim to be "str8" while your taking it up the ass at the same time ur cum guzzling another man and stroking his cock in a bukkake orgy?!? U seem like one

    the guy probably only wrote the article knowing the backlash it would get…anddd the attention/ publicity

    Ramin Setoodeh's theory of theatrical casting is so ridiculous that it barely deserves mention or rebuttal. Should Ron Howard have only cast real astronauts in Apollo 13? Mel Gibson should have been replaced in Braveheart by a Scottish warrior from the Middle Ages? This was the most idiotic crock that I've ever heard. I know they said that he's gay. Please tell me that he's also Newsweek's drama critic.

    its so true you know shes gay so it just looks so weird watching her try and act straight because it will never look believeable
