    • Chord: I would love to do a country song on Glee. We get an episode at a time, so as far as the storyline goes I don't know if it will happen. But hopefully. That would be fun.

    • Chord: (On his hair) It's naturally dirty blonde. So it's highlights. I had it down to my chin in this beginning of this year, and then I had them cut it from eight inches long to two inches long. I wanted to go brown and the lady made it black, so they basically had to bleach it to get the black out. It's really damaged it.

    • Chord: I played football, baseball, soccer, hockey, basketball, gymnastics, foosball and even croquet when I was growing up.

    • Chord: (On auditing for Glee) I really didn't have a clue at all when I auditioned, and they hadn't written anything for the character yet. I read the sides for the pilot as Finn. Maybe [based on] the take I had on my audition they were like, well, this will work for the character, and on top of it they knew I could sing. Or maybe they just needed a new kid who's really awkward and makes bad jokes. Once they cast me, they kind of wrote it for me basically.

    • Chord: (on starting in Glee) I was a little nervous to see how everybody would react to me as the new kid. I think my character is definitely worried about what people think and worrying about wanting to be cool and wanting to be popular and he definitely wants to be the cool, new kid. I think he's really about that going in because before he started going to the school he colored his hair. He did something different so maybe he would seem like a cool kid. I think my character has little insecurities that are beneath the surface.
