Sitting across from Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith of Glee
, it's hard not to
think you're sitting across from Kurt Hummel and Finn Hudson. The pair share incredible comedic timing, just as they do on the show. Chris with his rosy
cherubic cheeks and impeccably coiffed hair seems like a kinder, gentler version of Kurt. And the strapping Cory
in his white henley looked every bit the dreamy small town
quarterback, but nicer and with a better sense of humor. Just
a few minutes with Chris and Cory, and it's abundantly clear why creator Ryan Murphy cast
these virtual unknowns for two of Glee
's most important roles.
The newly-minted stars could not have been more enjoyable or engaging
interview subjects. The pair amiably talked about the "cloud
nine-esque" nature of their lives since Glee
similarities (and lack thereof) with their characters, their thoughts
on Gleeks, and their dream guest stars. ("Alec Baldwin!") Cory even sang me a
line from the next 80's ballad he'd like to tackle,
adding, "I think there's something so fantastically horrible about that
music." The pair went on to share what it was like working with their oh so
talented guest star from tonight's new episode, Kristin Chenoweth.
Let's just say that Miss Chenoweth is a little bit quicker with
choreography than the rest of the Glee
cast, or as Chris put it: "Glee
Cast 40 hours, Kristn Chenoweth 1."
Watch my full interview with Chris and Cory below and then be sure to
tune in tonight to see the boys in "The Rhoades Not Taken."
