Jane Lynch plays 'Wreck-It Ralph' 'hot babe': 'God, I look good'
Comedy actress Jane Lynch, known best for her role as semi-villain Sue Sylvester on "Glee," is very happy to be playing a "hot babe" in Disney's new 3D animated film "Wreck-It Ralph."
"High praise because she's gorgeous, she's young," she joked to OTRC.com "I was watching this movie going, 'God I look good. Oh, that's right, it's animation. It's animation. No I mean I look great. It's animation. It's animation.'"
Lynch, 52, plays Sergeant Tamora Jean Calhoun, is the heroine of the fictional video game "Hero's Duty" and one of several game characters Wreck-It Ralph, played by John C. Reilly, encounters during the movie. He was a villain of his own game, "Fix-It Felix, Jr.," and dreams about becoming a hero.
"I think the reason the story resonates with kids and adults is that it's your typical hero's journey story and they're so powerful about somebody being stuck in one place and in one role like Ralph was," Lynch said.
"He was the bad guy and has the courage to jump his game to try a new experience and when you do that, you jump your game into another game, you risk death because if you die in another game, you don't get to come back to life like you do in your game," she added. "And there's a great risk and Ralph took it and then in our own ways we all take it."
Jack McBrayer of the comedy series "30 Rock" plays Wreck-It Ralph's nemesis, the hero Fix-it Felix Jr.
"It was super fun voicing Felix because I can relate to someone who just wants to do their job and do it right and be recognized for it," the actor said. "I did love the obstacles that were presented when Ralph, Wreck-It Ralph, disappears from my game and throws everything in my world out of order and then how things change even more when I jump over to 'Hero's Duty' and meet this one."
"Wreck-It Ralph" is produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of OnTheRedCarpet.com.
