Sue Sylvester joins New Directions! Has her rivalry with the singing students finally come to an end?

Jane Lynch is fresh off of her Golden Globe win for Best Supporting Actress in a Series and she couldn’t be happier. Adding to her joy is her upcoming stint as a brand new member of the Glee club.

“I’m actually a part of the Glee club right now, singing with the kids and I am having a blast!” revealed Jane at the Producer’s Guild Awards red carpet on Jan. 22. The actress plays Sue, the cheerleading coach who recently had a stint as principal but stepped down to keep an eye on bullies around the school.

Sue has always had it out for the Glee students, but now that she’s part of the Glee club, we’ll get to see a whole new side of one of our favorite characters! And although Jane says she’s having a great time, Matthew Morrison told TVLine.com that she’s “a little bored because the choir room scenes are always the hardest and require the longest hours. So she’s getting a taste of what it’s like to be in the glee club and have the long hours.”

Jane also expressed her excitement for Anne Hathaway‘s upcoming episode: “I love Anne Hathaway, and I can’t wait for her to be a part of the show! It is so flattering!”
