The star played nasty Cheerios coach Sue Sylvester.
When 'Glee' made its debut all the way back in 2009 from showrunner Ryan Murphy, it became an instant success and shot the likes of Lea Michele, Naya Rivera, and the late Corey Monteith straight into the spotlight. Children and adults across the globe fell in love with the roster of compelling characters, all with their own emotional stories to tell through six seasons of singing and dancing, drama and tragedy.

The series was hit with the death of Monteith just before the cast came together to shoot season 5, meaning that storylines had to be rewritten and the star had to be written out of the show. It was a sad time for fans, and the punches to the gut of the fan base would continue to come when it was announced actor Mark Salling, who played Puck on the series, had been accused of holding child pornography.

There are some very dark corners in this cheeky comedy, which explores relationships and sexuality in unusually realistic ways. But filmmaker Jill Soloway doesn't offer easy answers, forcing her characters to sort out a messy situation on their own. And it's refreshing that we are left to find the message ourselves.
The story centres on stay-at-home mum Rachel (Kathryn Hahn), raising her young son Logan (Sawyer Ever) while her husband Jeff (Josh Radnor) is a hotshot app-creator. But this domestic set-up hasn't helped their sex life, so Rachel goes to a strip club with her pal Stephanie (Jessica St. Clair) for some inspiration. There she meets lap dancer McKenna (Juno Temple), and later contrives to become her friend, eventually inviting her to live in their spare room and work as a nanny to Logan. But of course Jeff is freaked out to have a stripper in the house.
After terrific supporting parts in everything from Revolutionary Road to Wanderlust, Hahn steps into a lead role like a natural. She holds the film together effortlessly, giving Rachel a loose complexity that makes her likeable even when she does something stupid. Her chats with her therapist (a hilarious Jane Lynch) help show how her life hasn't gone as expected, and the way she reaches out to this stripper feels intriguingly uncharacteristic and potentially perilous, but also edgy and invigorating. Opposite her, Temple is wonderfully free-spirited and unpredictable.

Jane Lynch had some advice for the younger actress in light of her coming out speech.
Celebrities have rushed to congratulate Ellen Page on her coming out announcement from Friday. That includes Glee actress, famed comedienne and LGBT+ advocate Jane Lynch, who had some additional words of wisdom for Page. Lynch, who has been out for the entirety of her career, had this to say to the 26-year-old (half Lynch’s age) actress (via People): "When I was younger, I lied by omission. She should give herself a break and not call it 'lying'. "
Lynch is speaking from experience, when she says the younger actress shouldn't be so hard on herself.
This refers to Page’s touching speech at HRC’s Time To Thrive conference on Friday, where the younger actress declared: “I’m tired of hiding and tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain.”

Rachel is a married stay at home mother who you'd think had no worries in the world; she has a well-off husband, a beautiful house, an adorable son and plenty of friends but somehow, she just doesn't seem to fit in. She visits her therapist regularly to discuss her floundering career prospects and totally diminishing sex life. One day, however, a friend of hers comes up with an idea to hit a strip club where Rachel meets a 19-year-old lap dancer named McKenna. Rachel later bumps into her in the street, where she had been thrown out of her home, and offers her a place to stay. Enlisting her as a live-in nanny, Rachel becomes fixated on helping McKenna find a better life, to the shock of her husband Jeff and friends. McKenna's presence soon becomes a strain on her marriage and Jeff starts to wonder if it's Rachel who needs the help, not McKenna.
