The colorful cast of A-list guest stars have become as much of a signature of Glee as the dazzling musical numbers, and Jane Lynch is can't wait to appear with this season's newcomers!

"Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson will be guest starring so they will have arcs this season and we're really excited about that," the actress who plays cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester told in an exclusive video interview. "I don't know what they will do or what they will be singing, it is always a big surprise until we get the script.

"Kate Hudson was in Nine and Sarah Jessica Parker was on Broadway as a kid in Annie, so they've got some chops!" she laughed.

When it comes to the revolving door of Hollywood icons who have visited the Glee set, "There's something about acting and singing that is a great level playing field, it is not more nerve-wracking to work with celebrities than anyone else," Jane explained. "When you get together in song it is always a great equalizer."

When asked who should would like to have on the show given the chance, "I love musical theater broads, I would love Tyne Daly to come on the show," she gushed. "I think that would be a lot of fun.

"I would also love to have Carol Burnett come back and play my mother the Nazi hunter, I would play them for that opportunity."

With plot lines that included teen bullying, an attempted suicide and a gay kiss, the last season of the Fox musical had an explosive ending and its far share of controversy, which Lynch says: "I would imagine it is good for the show, I don't concern myself with that but I like that we have all flavor of kids," she explained.  "I like the diversity on the show and the diversity of experience. I wish I had a Glee growing up."

Next up for the seasoned actress is hopefully a return to the stage and the bright lights of Broadway, but don't expect her to be hosting an award show again any time soon. "You do the Emmys and you can probably retire!" she told

"It is a complete resource for kids to research student loans because more and more the only way to go to college to get loans," she explained. "A lot of these kids are crippled with debt.

"I had student loans back in the late 70s or early 80s it was a very simple process and there were very low rates, and I paid it back by the time I was 30," Jane revealed. "But now, college for some kids is just not an option. I think that any kid who wants to go to college should be able to."
