Gleeks are looking forward to seeing Kurt (Chris Colfer) couple up in season 2. Many assumed the new singing jock played by Chord Overstreet (Sam) would be revealed to be his new boyfriend. That was until a casting call went out late last week for the recurring role of a cute, charismatic, GAY high school junior who fronts a competing glee club. If this young gentleman — you’re welcome to imagine a young Tom Ford — is Kurt’s catch, which 18 or over actor would you like to see land the part? My suggestions:
• Asher Book: He recurred as Steve last season on NBC’s Parenthood, the boy who wanted to sleep with Haddie but then ended up losing his virginity to her cousin Amber, and proved dreamy enough to get at least one adult viewer to do an age check (he’s 22). At age 6, he played the role of tiny teacup Chip in the Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast. He’s been the lead singer of a boy band called V Factory (their song “Love Struck”), and starred in 2009’s Fame.
• Zac Efron: He’s definitely got the abs, the ability to tug at our heartstrings (referring, of course, to 17 Again‘s courtroom scene), and a voice. Plus, reports have him actually expressing interest in appearing on the show, and wouldn’t you like to know how Kurt feels about the new facial hair?
