Hot off of winning an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy, Jane Lynch will be guest starring on Nickelodeon’s hit show iCarly. The show, which is about two girls and a boy who are running their own website, has been a big hit for Nickelodeon and has even had a couple of movie-episodes run. Lynch will be appearing as Sam’s mother. Sam, played by Jennette McCurdy is best friends with Miranda Cosgrove’s Carly.
So far, Sam’s mother has been mentioned on the show, but never seen in the previous two seasons. The guest shot is also something that appears to be special to Lynch’s family. Lynch’s stepdaughter is such a huge fan of the show that during her wedding ceremony with Dr. Lara Embry, her now wife, the show was mentioned in the vows.
Lynch is currently on the show Glee as the resident villain Sue Sylvester. Lynch has appeared in many films and shows, including a guest shot on Criminal Minds playing the mother of Dr. Spencer Reid, Diana Reid. Her character in that show is schizophrenic, which can be very hard to portray on the screen.
Lynch will be appearing on iCarly on 11 September at 8pm EDT, 7pm CDT.
