Check out the promo for the upcoming episode of “Glee” titled “Girls (and Boys) on Film” – set to air March 7 at a special time slot of 9.30/8.30c on Fox.
Chord Overstreet is the definition of pop-culture perfection. How else do you explain how an actor with the name of Chord—there are three notes in a chord, and he was the third child born to songwriter Paul and makeup artist Julie—got cast on a show that is all about musical theater? It’s just in the
We caught up with the multi-talented Overstreet over SAG Awards weekend to talk life on the set, those “fish lips,” and his two favorite Glee guest stars.
What’s a typical day on the set of Glee like for you?
Chord Overstreet: It all depends on how big of a day it is or how many scenes we’re in. We’re usually in every scene that we’re there for, so it’s nice to have a little downtime where we can chill and get work done in our trailers… write, take naps, do whatever.
Sam certainly hasn’t been immune from being attacked on the show. Were you sensitive to the fish lips comment?
Chord: Not really. I really could care less. [Laughs] The show is about the underdog and the outcast at school, and people that are a little self-conscious and insecure. I didn’t even know that I had big lips until I guess I joined the show. I hadn’t even thought about it. But if that’s the only thing they can point out, then I’ll take it! A lot of girls always compliment guys with big lips, so I don’t know! [Laughs] But I could care less. I think people ragging on me is kind of a form of flattery.
Who has been your favorite guest star?
Chord: I love John Stamos. John’s a really friendly, cool dude. I thought when I met him for the first time, ‘I wonder if this guy is going to be kind of a little bit of a…” but when I met him he ended up being one of the coolest guys and playfully makes jokes with everybody. I watched Full House. I loved Full House. He’s just a cool dude.
Another one of my favorite guys is Matt Bomer, who is by far one of the sweetest guys I’ve ever met. He was constantly going out of his way. I didn’t know how good he was at comedy, but he just killed it. I love Matt Bomer. I hope he comes back on the show. I don’t see why not.
Blaine may have been the one all worked up over Chord Overstreet’s Sam in last week’s “Sadie Hawkins” episode, but according to Chord Overstreet himself, soon Sam will be having a hard time of his own.
“Sam’s trying to figure of what these next few next steps are in life, and he goes through a lot of his insecurities. He deals with his grades a little bit and he’s struggling with that,” Chord Overstreet tells [E! Online]. “He’s a little hard on himself, but he has everybody towards the end of the episode bring some life back into him and cheer him up. It has a lot of heart and funny stuff.”
Well we know Blaine will definitely be there to cheer Sam up. While Chord of course couldn’t spoil too much, he also mentioned the big wedding coming up – but he’s kind of worrying Wemma fans a little here with this strange tease.
“We were just talking about that last week. There will be a wedding. I’m not saying whose wedding it is,” Overstreet teases. “There will be some shockers, some happy moments, some singing, some dancing, and some affirmations. I don’t know what I’m allowed to say. I just gotta be careful!”
Love is in the air!
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, people so either get excited (Ugh, couples!) or start stocking up on chocolate to ease the dull ache—or celebrate the freedom—of being alone (#singlepeopleproblems)! In today’s Spoiler Chat, we’re dropping some scoop on Glee and The Big Bang Theory’s big Valentine’s Day episode, plus juicy info on one of The Following’s complicated pairings. If that’s not enough, we’ve also got spoilers on Smash, The Vampire Diaries, Community and more!
GleekFreak4298 : Anything you can tell us about Glee couples? Especially Finchel, Klaine and Brittana! Please! You’d be like my best friend!
OK, but only if you get us BFF necklaces! We recently asked Chord Overstreet about the show’s upcoming Valentine’s Day episode and whether or not there’s a lot of Brittana and Sam action going down. “You’re going to get a lot of different relationship stuff from all the relationships, so I think it’ll be really fun and really good,” he teases. “There are a lot of great musical numbers that we just shot.” Too vague? Does Overstreet telling us he’s “down to a sock” in Thursday’s “Naked” ease the pain?
Glee’s Blake Jenner, Chord Overstreet and Jacob Artist without shirts on. Do you need more context than that?
If not, watch a sneak peek video from Glee’s upcoming episode titled “Naked” For those who want to know what’s going on, here is the gist: New Directions wants to raise money for Regionals, so they decide to shoot a sexy “Men of McKinley” calendar featuring the boys of the glee club. You might remember creator Ryan Murphy tweeting about the episode back in December. You might have thought it was just a fun fake, but it is all very, very real.
It looks like everyone is having fun with the photo shoot, except for Blaine (Darren Criss). What’s got ya down, buddy? Thankfully, Sam appears to be talking him through it while shirtless. We love you, Glee. Never change.
Glee’s “Naked” episode airs Thursday, Jan. 31 on Fox.
The guys of Glee serenade the crowd in this new still from the hit FOX series.
In next week’s episode “Sadie Hawkins,” The girls of the glee club organize a Sadie Hawkins dance at McKinley High, in which the girls ask out their dates, leading to interesting couplings among the members of New Directions.
Meanwhile, Sam (Chord Overstreet) is convinced that the Warblers cheated at Sectionals, and he makes it his mission to find the evidence. And Kurt (Chris Colfer) attempts to find his niche at NYADA.
“Sadie Hawkins” airs Thursday, January 24th @ 9PM ET/PT on Fox. Check out a preview below!
“Glee” star Chord Overstreet did a brief Q & A with his Twitter followers early this morning, Dec. 18.
As Christmas is quickly approaching, someone asked him to name his favorite Christmas song and he answered, “All I Want for Xmas.”
Someone else asked what character he would love to play in “Glee” besides the ever-lovable Sam. Overstreet’s reply: I would have to say “Sue.”
It seems irresistible for any actor to slip into Sue Sylvester’s sneakers and track suit, megaphone blazing all sorts of politically incorrect zingers for sheer shock value. Overstreet’s already sporting the requisite short blonde hair …
In the infamous “Props” season three body swap episode, Sam swapped with Rory (Damian McGinty) and Sue swapped with her nemesis, Will Schuester. Darn! Maybe next time.
Wait. Who else thinks it would be kind of fun to see Sam play Sue’s coaching assistant? If we throw Becky (Lauren Potter) in the mix, they could form a new Cheerios pop trio …
Jane Lynch has already earned a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy Award for her indelible performance as the series main antagonist, who is often butting heads with Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) and more recently, Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith), in her endless battle to take down the glee club and arts in education in the name of her Cheerios squad.
In last week’s “Glee, Actually” Christmas episode, Sue shows the tender side we rarely see, when she recruits an uncharacteristically humbug Becky (Lauren Potter) to help her break into the Rose household Grinch-style. But instead of taking things away (there is nothing to take), she delivers a completely trimmed Christmas tree, lots of presents and 800 dollars in cash so that Marley’s mom can pay for Marley (Melissa Benoist) to get treatment for her eating disorder.
As for Sam, he and Brittany (Heather Morris) prepare for the end of the world in accordance with the Mayan calendar prediction. Brittany cashes out her life savings and buys expensive presents for her friends. Sam surprises Brittany with a serenade of “Jingle Bell Rock,” then bends on one knee and proposes.
Coach Beiste (Dot Marie Jones) performs a “mock” Mayan wedding ceremony for the naively innocent pair, who wake up on December 22, 2012 and discover that the world is still intact and they’re not really married. Whew!
Another Twitter follower referred to the Mayan apocalypse in the Q & A, asking Overstreet “do you plan on making a survival kit for when the world really ends in a week?”
Overstreet joked in reply, “no one will survive haha.”
“Glee, Actually” marks the “Glee” season four winter finale. The series returns (fingers crossed) on Thursday, January 10, 2013 in Flint on WSMH FOX66 at p.m. ET.
Sam (Chord Overstreet) takes on the spirit of the holidays with this performance of “Jingle Bell Rock” in Glee Season 4, Episode 10: “Glee, Actually,” (airing December 13) with a little bit of help from some cheerful Reindeerios!
Entertainment Tonight has the first listen of the classic holiday tune, which also appears on Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album Vol.3 — which drops December 11 (click here to pre-order).
