Jane Lynch has given voice to a cartoon goose in Rio and a prehistoric bird in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. Now she's turning to penguins -- in a Discovery Channel special.
Discovery on Monday said the Glee star will narrate Penguins: Waddle All the Way, a 2-hour special airing Nov. 23 (9 p.m. ET/PT).
The show, a co-production between Discovery and BBC, has a hidden secret. Instead of cameramen crouching to get just the right angle, filmmaker John Downer fashioned 50 moving "penguincams" that closely resemble life-size animatronic penguins, chicks and even eggs,
"I've been a big fan of Discovery's wildlife programming for years, and I am truly thrilled to be narrating Penguins: Waddle All the Way," Lynch says in a statement. "It's hard to go wrong with a title like that. And seriously, is there anything cuter than a penguin?"
