Did you hear the great news? We don’t have to wait until April to be gleeful!

We’re utterly devastated that we have to wait until April 2010 to see more episodes of Glee, but luckily we get to see our favorite sourpuss cheer leading coach, Jane Lynch, on the small screen before then!

On Jan. 10, the wise-cracking 49-year-old actress will make her animated debut as a recurring character on the Family Guy spin-off, The Cleveland Show.

Jane’s character, a high school teacher named Ms. Eck, sounds frighteningly familiar to another teacher we know and love to hate—her Glee character, Sue Sylvester. “They both lack filters and say whatever awful thing comes into their mind. In-the-head-out-the-mouth syndrome,” Jane told Entertainment Weekly‘s Michael Ausiello.

She did point out some key differences between the snarky characters. “Ms. Eck lacks Sue’s icy Nordic aggression, [and she] may have the largest, most disproportionate butt in cartoon history,” Jane explained.

The Cleveland Show had us thoroughly entertained before, but now there’s even more reason to tune in!

Do you think catching Jane as a cartoon will tide you over until Glee-time?
