GLEE: Kevin McHale Teases What’s to Come (With Some Help From Chord Overstreet, Damian McGinty, and Harry Shum Jr.)
To celebrate the occasion, I talked with series star Kevin McHale (Artie) about the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute, Artie’s romances, what he wants to sing on the show…and then our interview got crashed by a couple of his costars.
It’s no secret you’re a huge Michael Jackson fan and you’ve always championed using his music for the show…
Kevin McHale: Yes, I know, and now we’re doing [a tribute episode]…it’s scary.
So how is that for you? Are you in heaven?
KM: Oh, hell yes. I also wanted to make sure it was done right, but they always do justice to whoever we’re doing. We did some cool twists to old songs, and I’m very, very happy with it. We’ve done stuff we’ve never ever done before, which is…I don’t know how they keep thinking of it! I can’t wait to see it. We’ve been working our asses off. He deserves nothing but the best.
And now that you’ve had Michael Jackson, is there any song you really want to try and tackle?
KM:There is one, but I don’t want to jinx it. I’m working on [GLEE co-creator] Ryan [Murphy] as of this past week.
Can you tease the artist?
KM: It’s by Mario. I would love to be able to do that.
Aside from the Michael Jackson episode, what is Artie up to?
KM: First episode back, there’s some lovin’. He finally gets some….it’s been a quiet season on that front for me.
Get ready to see Helen Mirren guest star on an upcoming episode and of Glee! Helen dished to OK! on the red carpet last night of the National Board of Review Awards Gala in NYC about her love of the show and favorite member of the Glee cast.
Helen revealed to reporters that she’s already taped her appearance on the show.
“I’ve done it. It was really fun,” she said. “I love that show. ”
Helen didn’t want to play favorites with the cast, but she ended up doing it anyways!
“Oh, I don’t have a favorite. They’re all great. I love the guy in the wheelchair, actually,” Helen admitted. “They did an episode where he gets up and dances. Did you ever see that?”
Oh yes we did!
So what does Helen love so much about Kevin McHale (aka “the guy in the wheelchair”)?
“He’s got a great voice,” Helen told OK!. “He’s a really good actor and that episode where he suddenly got up and danced, it was so moving. It made me cry.”
“And he’s a great dancer! You know, there’s this great dancer who has to spend his life in the wheel chair…” she explained of his moving character.
