“Inside the Actors Studio” always gives us a fresh perspective on our favorite casts, so we’re looking forward to the April 9 episode (8 p.m. EST on Bravo) to get to know “Glee” stars Matthew Morrison, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Jane Lynch, and Cory Monteith — and co-creator Ryan Murphy. Check out some of the fun tidbits below!
And yes, before you ask… Morrison does breakdance on stage. Naturally.
Matthew Morrison on his high school breakdance gang: “The mean streets of OC… a group of friends and I kind of started this gang. That was my first foray into dance [laughs]. We got together and we would breakdance. We would get together and we would show each other moves every week.”
Chris Colfer, on wanting to act since he was a fetus: “Embryo, yes. I used to pose for the sonograms.”
Ryan Murphy on his high school years: “I was an odd creature in high school because I was a target but also I was popular, and that’s because on the sly, I was dating a lot of the football players.”
Lea Michele on her audition experience: “I was listening to music and singing ‘On My Own’ in the car and about to pull into the Fox lot and totaled my car at the time. I’m from New York and was driving in LA. I ran up the lot pulling glass out of my hair, and I had nicks on my body. I ran into the building – and exactly what Rachel Berry would have done – they were like, you don’t need to audition today! And I said, there is no way that I’m not auditioning. They didn’t even believe I got in a car wreck!”
Chris Colfer on his character, Kurt: “What I love about Kurt the most is that he is himself, despite having his world constantly tell him he should not be who he is. And it takes a lot of strength to be who he is and wear those tight pants.”
On what they would like to hear God say at the pearly gates…
Cory Monteith: “Sorry I haven’t been around. There’s a good explanation.”
Chris Colfer: Don’t listen to them- you get to come in too.
