Jane Lynch Doing SNL, Found Out By Accident

Jane Lynch is hosting SNL in October, but she found out by accident when 'Glee' guru and 'Eat Pray Love' director Ryan Murphy let it slip.

Murphy told THR at the movie's premiere Tuesday night that, "I notified her by accident."

He went on, "'Saturday Night Live' called to say, 'Would you give us Jane for a week in October?' We just don't do that, but for Lorne Michaels, I said yes."

After the call, he texted her the fun news.

"I said, 'Lady, you're doing 'Saturday Night Live,'" Murphy said. "And she literally wrote back, 'What are you talking about?'"
