Jane Lynch, Emmy-winning star of ‘Glee’ and ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,’ talks about getting her big break at 40 in Christopher Guest’s ‘Best in Show,’ improvising with Steve Carell in ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin,’ acting opposite Meryl Streep in ‘Julie and Julia’ and having a blast hosting NBC’s ‘Hollywood Game Night.’ Plus, how Ellen DeGeneres made it so she never had to ‘come out’ but rather just got to ‘show up.’

Highlights from this episode and others at The Daily Beast.
