Ellen Recruited Jane Lynch to Our Team

Jane Lynch admits Ellen DeGeneres helped her become a scissor sister. Watch a clip from Lynch's interview on DeGeneres' show after the jump.

In an interview on yesterday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jane Lynch admitted DeGeneres is one of the reasons she came out.

Lynch, who plays Glee‘s maniacal cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, said DeGeneres’ coming out during the peak of her career was inspirational.
