Jane Lynch - Jane Lynch Grabbed Movie Role From New Co-star

Actress Jane Lynch felt compelled to apologise to Escape From Planet Earth sidekick Craig Robinson while they were creating voice characters for the new animated movie because she once stole a part from him.

Robinson was almost locked in to play a store manager in The 40 Year Old Virgin before Steve Carell's wife persuaded her husband to add a female to the almost all-male cast.

She tells Wenn, "It was originally a man's role. That's why I have to thank Steve Carell's wife Nancy Walls, who is a wonderful actress in her own right. She said, 'You have so many men in your film. Why don't you read Jane for the store manager?' and they did!

"I'm sorry for Craig, but that's what happened."
