"Glee" is more than actress Jessalyn Gilsig's latest series. It also describes exactly what she felt upon learning she had landed the part of the Glee Club advisor's kooky wife. Gilsig's extensive rÃ©sumÃ© is chock-full of weighty fare -- training at Harvard's American Repertory Theater Institute, then stops with TV dramas such as "Boston Public," "Friday Night Lights" and "CSI: NY." But it was her stint as Gina Russo on "Nip/Tuck" that persuaded its creator, Ryan Murphy, who is also one of the creative forces behind "Glee," to give her a shot at comedy.
