NEW YORK – Actress Jane Lynch says her “Glee” character Sue Sylvester throws “a hissy fit” when the show returns.

The Fox hit is on hiatus until a special post-Super Bowl episode on Feb. 6 that features guest shots from Gwyneth Paltrow and Katie Couric, and the students offering their version of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” she said.

“It’s got so much firepower,” the Emmy-winning actress said. “There is so much going on in the show that is crazy and funny and wild. I have a hissy fit the likes of which no one has seen before.”

Lynch talked about her show Thursday while promoting another project: an educational campaign on teenage mobile phone misuse that she is doing for LG Mobile Phones. She does a series of videos about texting while driving, sexting, cyberbullying and other misuses of mobile phones by teenagers. The vignettes are available on YouTube and the company’s website.

The videos are aimed at parents to get them talking with their kids about these problems.

Stephen Baldwin sues Costner over BP spill investment

NEW ORLEANS – Stephen Baldwin has sued fellow actor Kevin Costner over their investments in a device that BP used in trying to clean up the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

The federal lawsuit filed in New Orleans on Wednesday by Baldwin and a friend claims Costner and a business partner duped them out of their shares of an $18 million deal for BP to purchase oil-separating centrifuges from a company they formed after the April 20 spill.

BP ordered 32 of the centrifuges, which separate oil from water, and deployed a few of the devices on a barge in June. BP capped the well in July and kept any more oil from leaking until the seafloor gusher was permanently sealed in September.

Costner’s publicist, Arnold Robinson, declined to comment Thursday.

Robertson’s marijuana comments stir questions

RICHMOND, Va. – Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson told his “700 Club” audience that harsh penalties for marijuana possession are costly for the nation and damaging to young people, but a spokesman said Thursday he was not calling for decriminalizing pot.

Robertson, 80, made the comments on the Christian Broadcasting Network in the context of faith-based approaches to treating offenders, the spokesman said.

“Dr. Robertson unequivocally stated that he is against the use of illegal drugs,” Chris Roslan wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

The comments, however, were widely interpreted on several websites as an endorsement by the Christian Coalition founder of legalizing marijuana. They were celebrated by NORML, a group that advocates legalization of the drug.

Whose face is on that coin?

LONDON – That’s Kate Middleton? Britain’s Royal Mint on Thursday released a commemorative coin featuring portraits of Prince William and his bride-to-be, but critics said the results were far from lifelike.

Images of the couple on the memento bear little resemblance to either the prince or his 28-year-old betrothed. Middleton appears plump in the face and lips and has bags under her eyes, while some critics suggested William looks like former U.S. Vice President Al Gore.

Available in silver or gold, the 5-pound ($7.70) coin – which costs 9.99 pounds ($15.40) to buy – marks the April 29 wedding.
