Dot-Marie Jones on her 'Glee' Emmy nomination on 'Good Day LA'Dot-Marie Jones's Coach Beiste is perhaps the only person in the 'Glee' universe who could go toe-to-toe with Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester. For that fortitude and charisma, she was rewarded with an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress.

Tuesday, 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on FOX) anchor Tony McEwing got a glimpse of how intimidating Jones can be when he mispronounced her character's name (it's pronounced like "beast," but McEwing said "beasty").

McEwing immediately apologized, and asked her to be gentle. "I'm always gentle," she said, "for a minute." He also noticed she had a broken foot. "I broke a bone because somebody wasn't gentle, Tony," said Jones.

Jones rattled off the impressive list of names against which she is vying for the Emmy, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Kristin Chenoweth, both for their spots on 'Glee,' Cloris Leachman from 'Raising Hope,' Elizabeth Banks for '30 Rock,' and Tina Fey for hosting 'Saturday Night Live.' "I think we should all just get liquored up and roshambo for it," she said.

Hopefully, she meant the "rock-paper-scissors" version of roshambo, not the more physical interpretation. Otherwise, you would never see some of your favorite stars again.
