    HOLLYWOOD (CNS) – Jane Lynch will receive the 2,505th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, honoring a career best known for her Emmy-winning portrayal of villainous cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on Fox’s “Glee.”

The ceremony will be streamed live on the Walk of Fame’s website, walkoffame.com.

    Lynch won the outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series Emmy in 2010, the same year she received an outstanding guest actress in a comedy series nomination for her recurring role as psychiatrist Linda Freeman on “Two and a Half Men.”
