Video: ‘Glee’ Bully Dave Karvofsky (Played By Max Adler) Talks About Kissing Kurt Hummel!

MTV News intervied actor Max Adler, who plays Glee bully Dave Karovsky, the football player who gave Kurt Hummel his first kiss on last week’s episode.

Says Adler:

I got the script, and I was reading that scene, and Kurt, he just doesn’t let up. He keeps on me and he keeps on me, and I thought, ‘I’m going to punch him in the face. This is getting serious.’ And then I turn the page, and it says: ‘Karovsky kisses Kurt.’ And I was like, ‘What?’ I jumped off the couch. I was as shocked as anybody else was. It was totally unexpected.”

Max added that it wasn’t only Kurt’s first gay kiss but also his.: “So, yeah, first time I’ve kissed a guy, and I’m glad it was Chris Colfer!”

Glee’s Darren Criss (Blaine, Kurt Hummell’s New Gay "Friend") Comes Out As STRAIGHT!

Vanity Fair journalist Brett Berk asked Glee actor Darren Criss in a roundabout way if he was gay

It’s a subject that’s very near and dear to my heart, simply because I grew up in such an open community—doing theater in San Francisco. I mean, it doesn’t get much, stereotypically, “gayer.” I was inadvertently raised in the “gay community.” I had straight parents, but I spent massive amounts of time at a very early age with gay, theater-hopeful thirty-somethings. And those were the people I spent time with early on, so my whole perception of “sexuality” just wasn’t there. It just…was. It even got to the point where, later in life… I had all the components in place. I was, well, not super effeminate, but I was into girly things—I liked musical theater, all the stereotypical things. I had to come out and say, well, I’m sorry, but I think I’m straight. And people were like, say it ain’t so! And I would say, “It’s been a secret too long, but I’m actually a straight male.”

And so for the longest time when people asked me about Blaine, I wanted to say It doesn’t matter. And it doesn’t. But I don’t want to devalue it, because it’s a very earnest question, and I can see why people would want to know. And I realized that if I said, It doesn’t matter, that immediately means that I’m gay. So I do define myself as a straight male, but it really doesn’t come into play with me in this role. As an actor, your objective is always to play the scene. And this case, he happens to be a gay teen.
Oh well.  We all can’t be perfect.  It just makes me wonder why Ryan Murphy didn;t cast another openly gay man in this role.  I am sure there are many just as talented and just as cute.  It would have made a real statement.

Darren Criss is talented, cute, and seems to be a really nice and intellegent guy and did a great job last night.  But why didn’t Ryan Murphy cast another openly gay actor in the role?  I would be nice to have some openly gay actors in a gay storyline on mainstream television.

Oh well, lets hold out some hope that Max Adler who plays the closted High School jock Dave Karofsky  plays for our side.  .

Why always cast straight men playing gay roles? There are TONS of openly gay musical theatre actors out there.

Whats "Too Gay" Today? – Spanxz For Men, Chris Coffer Was Bullied, Jason Akermanis’ Little Brother Rory Wants You To Forget His Bro Is A Homophobe, Jeremy Piven Waxes His…., and Britian’s Youngest Mayor Is A 24 Year Old Gay Man!

*  No need to worry about those love handels now that we have SPANXZ!  Who needs liposuction or abdominal sculpting when positive body images are just a compressing body-shaping garment away?  Not only is there Spanx For Men, but brands including Equmen and Sculptees actually exist. And they’re selling like hot cakes — at least how hot cakes sell to men who need squeeze-y tees that squish in their guts.

*  Jason Akermanis the Aussie Football League player who said gay athletes should stay closet is in a mess of trouble now First he stuck his foot in his mouth, then Akermanis said that his column had been edited to sound more homophobic (a lie, it turns out). A lot of guys in Ackermanis’ league started calling him out and some of his teammates said that all the press attention from the article effected their playing. And now after telling him to shut up, Akcermanis’ team The Western Bulldogs has demoted him. The only person in Akermanis’ corner? His little brother Rory:

“I know I’m biased, but every time he has an opinion people want to shoot him down. He wasn’t gay bashing. He was just saying the culture is not right to have a gay player come out. In my opinion, if a bloke does come out he would get hounded by opposition supporters. It would be sad, I think… what’s done is done… Whether he lied about the column or not, it doesn’t affect how he plays football. He just wants to get on with playing football … he wants to get his nerve right. I’m hoping they do nothing, just say that he needs a rest. I don’t know why they’d want to put him on suspension for writing an article.”

Isn’t that sweet?

*  Jeremy Piven waxes his NIPS!  Dude. PLEASE put it on!

*  Britain’s youngest mayor is a gay man: “Apart from their red robes and gold bling, mayors are known primarily for their venerable age. But Retford, in Nottinghamshire, has taken the radical step of appointing the youngest mayor in the country, 23-year-old Ian Campbell. Campbell was this month elected as a Labour district councillor for Bassetlaw, beating his Conservative rival by just 15 votes. Surprisingly, the Conservative-controlled council then nominated and voted Campbell to be mayor for the year…Campbell rose to prominence as a gay rights activist after being thrown out of his family home for coming out. In 2009, he was named Nottinghamshire’s young person of the year for his work visiting schools and colleges nationwide, and running workshops to counter homophobic bullying. His sexuality was not an issue during his campaign to be elected a councillor, which pleased him
