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 started, their 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."
