When Katie Couric asked “Glee” star Jane Lynch what she thinks of Rush Limbaugh on her new Web show this week, Jane replied, “We could do without him, can’t we?”

Couric also asked the openly lesbian actress, who’s marrying her partner Dr. Lara Embry this month, about that controversial Newsweek article that argues gay actors cannot convincingly play straight.

Poppycock, she says.

]]>Aaron Sorkin who wrote a wonderful blog on the Huffington Post and said, you can no more play gay than you can play Catholic,” Lynch says. “It’s kind of just one part of who somebody is, unless they’re a flamer or a butch dyke, if you’re going overboard with a stereotype. But I don’t think it really matters…I play straight people all the time and nobody’s upset about it.” Do you agree with Jane and Aaron?
