Today’s TV Addict Top 5: More Questions with GLEE Star Cory Monteith

Aside from fellow Canadian Bryan Adams, which artist would you like to see Finn perform to?
Cory Monteith: I think Billy Joel would be a great choice for Finn. When I think of Finn I think of classic rock and I think Finn and the rock music aspect would be really interesting rather than have him sing R&B,

What — aside from the just-released GLEE soundtrack of course — is on your iPod right now.
Right now I’m listening to a lot of Jeff Buckley, a lot of Radiohead and a lot of old stuff it seems. I listen to a lot of different genres, I like all music, from metal, to rock, to Jazz, to Big Band, whatever.

There has been a lot of talk about a live tour, what can you spill?
There’s been talk of GLEE on Broadway, GLEE on Ice….

As a Canadian, I’d expect you would rock GLEE on ice.
It’s true. I do know how to skate pretty damn well. You come out of the womb knowing how to skate in this country. But I think it’s a scheduling thing. I think it’s just literally getting all the “Gleeks” together in the same room for five minutes.

Between shooting the season and the never-ending publicity tour that FOX has you on, is a tour really feasible?
I think it would be a really fun component. I definitely have heard talk of a handful of performances or perhaps a residency for a week or two at a couple of key locations. But I don’t think anything would be produced unless it were complimentary and fitting of the cast and the show which would take time and ultimately money. It wouldn’t just be a one off knock off show up and lip sync, if we were to do a show it would be the real deal.

    Ok, he just went up 10 cool points in my book. Radiohead is my favorite band and Jeff Buckley my favorite male solo artist. Finn neeeeds to sing Buckley.

  • grumpyoldman

    He really coughed up “I’ll Stand By You” last week.

  • Rebekah

    love radiohead and jeff buckley, although, i like buckley’s work more when it’s covered. Howie day used to do a mean New Years Prayer.

  • Todd W in NC

    Wow, he picked Billy Joel, my favorite artist! Sweet!

    I agree that he’d be great for classic rock. I think he did much better with Journey than he did with Queen.
