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.
