Talk about burning the candle at both ends: Jane Lynch is joining the ranks of Helen Mirren, Beyoncé, Michael Jackson and the like with her own wax figure at Madame Tussauds.
The Glee star is due to be immortalized as Sue Sylvester, her popular character from the Fox show. Her outfit? A track suit, of course, accessorized with her signature bullhorn.
Earlier this year, the actress, 50, met with sculptors and figure specialists, who took hundreds of measurements and photos to prepare her figurine. Total cost: $300,000.
Though sculpted in London, the life-like wax Lynch will be shipped to Madame Tussauds Hollywood – also home to the wax images of Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Kidman. Lynch’s unveiling is slated for Aug. 4 – another high point in a year that’s already seen Lynch marrying Dr. Lara Embry, to say nothing of her grabbing her first Emmy nomination.
