'Glee' Cast Hopes to Cover Michael JacksonNovember 11, 2009
The cast of “Glee” has covered hits from artists such as Christina Aguilera and Journey — and now they’ve set their sights on the King of Pop.
"Michael Jackson would be unreal," Kevin McHale, who plays wheelchair-bound Artie Abrams, tells “Extra” of covering new artists. “Any Michael Jackson song… I would be fascinated to see our ‘Glee-ified’ Michael Jackson song.”
Co-star Cory Monteith, who plays football player Finn Hudson, agrees — and thinks it’s the perfect way to pay respect to Jackson, who died in June 2009. “It’s such a great time to pay homage to such a brilliant artist.”
Choosing a Jackson song to cover may seem daunting, but Monteith, 27, already has one in mind.
"I think it should be ‘Thriller,’ but a dream sequence," Cory says, "and Artie is dreaming and he busts out of the chair and tears up the dance floor.” McHale, 21, chimes in, “All I want is the short pants, white socks and loafers — that’s what I wear anyway.”
Rumors have been circulating that Monteith has been cozying up to Lea Michele, who plays Glee club star Rachel Berry — but the actor is remaining mum on the nature of their relationship.
"What rumors?" Cory says when asked about the romance whispers. "It’s incredible — as soon as people get on television, rumors pop up." When pressed about being single, Monteith turned and asked McHale, "Are you single?" McHale responded, "I’m single if you’re single."
"Glee" remains Cory and Kevin’s main focus, but the actors have big aspirations for the future — including a jump to the silver screen and recording albums.
"I really want to do movies if I can…I’d love to record an album when the time is right, and I figure out what exactly I want to do, because I’m still really new at this," Cory says. Kevin adds, "Music, movies, whatever — when the time is right. Right now, its kind of ‘Glee’ world. We’re happy — we go back filming soon."
Cory agrees. “It’s ‘Glee’ time.”
Tell “Extra” — Which Michael Jackson song should “Glee” cover?
Cory, Dianna and Mark on myfoxbostin (2009). They looked like really happy about their whole glee thing.
Cory Monteith loves his fans!
I hadn’t seen his one before, Cory meeting fans, as pleasant as ever
( FYI don’t bother with the sound because the commenters are asshats, not to Cory, just in general)

It’s always a magical thing when you meet musicians or actors you admire and they turn out to be decent human beings. (We’ve all heard the horror stories, am I right?) Well, I’m pleased to say that I gave the cast of the hit show “Glee” cast my “Are They Jerks?” litmus test this morning, and they passed with flying colors.
Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn) and Amber Riley (Mercedes) stopped by MTV News to talk about the brand spankin’ new “Glee: Music, Volume 1″ soundtrack album, which just dropped this week. We snagged them at the tail-end of an intense week-long promo whirlwind, but you’d never know we were their 700th interview, given their bright faces and genuine dispositions. (700 might be an exaggeration. Sue me.)
You’ll get to see my interview with the cast soon enough. We touched on everything from Madonna to Joss Whedon to off-screen romance rumors (which the adorably cozy Cory and Lea dodged like pros). Oh, and then there was that one moment when Lea totally geeked out and begged Adam Lambert to duet with her.
So keep your eyes peeled for tons of “Glee” stories in the coming days. Plus, MTV News got its very own slushy facial from a certain someone. Confused? You won’t be. Trust me — it’s epic.
Special thanks to Cory for following and re-tweeting me on Twitter. Thanks to him, I scored almost 100 new Twitter followers in a matter of minutes.
