Jane Lynch of “Glee” and “Best in Show” Fame–NY Times Exclusive on Her Wedding


Jane Lynch, one of the funniest women to walk the planet, got married over the weekend. Paula Schwartz of the New York Times was the only reporter on the scene, and got the exclusive.

Lynch plays wild Sue on “Glee,” but most of us know her from Christopher Guest‘s hilarious films like “Best in Show” and “For Your Consideration.” On Saturday she married Dr. Lara Embry at the Blue Heron Inn in Sunderland, Massachusetts. All of a sudden People and US Weekly are tripping over themselves issuing stories about the nuptials. But Schwartz and the Times got the real story.

Schwartz is one of the hidden treasures at the Times. There almost 30 years, the intrepid reporter went to Hollywood this winter for the Oscars and the Golden Globes. Any time an actor mentioned they might be getting married, Schwartz simply offered to cover the ceremony. The result was gold with Lynch, who’s the star of the hottest TV show. “Glee” is a “Fame” for the 2010 set.
