The 20-year-old actor opened up about joining Glee, his character Jake and turning down Julliard. Check it:
On his first day on set: “Initially Melissa Benoist (who plays Marley on the show) and I were terrified to come on set because, obviously, Glee is huge and it was our first day, and we were so nervous but everybody was surprisingly really, really great—because you never know what to expect starting a new job—and they were all just wonderful. I was really lucky, I mean Glee has the best fans, and they were all so supportive to all of us new people. Seeing all of their sweet comments on twitter, and it just makes [me] want to work that much harder because so many people enjoy it.”
On his character: “One of my favorite things about Jake is that he is very layered, and I think that it’s interesting to see that type of character development on television. And I like to think that I’m a little bit of a layered person—there are different sides to me—and I like to bring that into Jake as well.”
On choosing Hollywood over school: “I grew up as a competition kid. So I did everything: jazz, tap, hip hop. And then I did a lot of extra ballet on top of all of that when I was in high school. I actually got accepted into Julliard for dance, but I turned it down to come to LA.”
In tonight’s all-new episode “Girls (And Boys) On Film,” As everyone recovers from Will (Matthew Morrison) and Emma’s (Jayma Mays) wedding, the glee club is given the assignment to sing their favorite song from a movie.

Check out the first trailer from The Philosophers, starring Bonnie Wright!
The Philosophers revolves around a brilliant but mysterious philosophy teacher who challenges his class of twenty graduating seniors to undertake one final thought experiment in order to complete the requirements for graduation. The experiment is to be the most extreme they have ever had to face. Using the power of logic alone, the students must choose which of them would be worthy of a place in an underground shelter built to withstand a fast-approaching nuclear apocalypse. The shelter only has space for ten people, which means certain death for those that are not chosen.
