First look: Jane Lynch gets booked!

August 23, 2010 |  6:18 pm


A hit show, an Emmy nomination, her own wax figure -- and now a shameless mug shot? Looks like Jane Lynch has finally arrived.

No, the "Glee"; favorite wasn't actually arrested. The "mug shot" above is your first look, courtesy of the Ministry of Gossip, at a new viral campaign that Lynch will front about responsible texting for kids.

What, you ask, does irresponsible texting look like? Consider perhaps the case of one Kevin Kristopik, who allegedly obtained Justin Bieber's cellphone number and harassed the pop star with unwanted texts. Bieber, for better or worse, taught his alleged tormentor a lesson by sending Kevin's cellphone number to 4.5 million Twitter followers, resulting in a just a few unwanted texts going the other way.

"The campaign has funny viral videos starring Jane, encouraging parents to talk to their kids about responsible texting," a source close to the project tells us.

The first video will hit the Web on Wednesday. In the meantime, does Jane look good in stripes? Have you ever been bothered via text? Tell us in comments below.
