Dijon has appeared in two commercials for McDonalds.
Dijon, along with his Glee co-stars won a 2010 Screen Actors Guild Award for "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series."
Dijon:(On if he's like his character on Glee) Matt's a little different from me, I'm a little bit more vocal. I'm a confident guy, but I'm also very humble at the same time. Matt, as of now, is a little more chill, he's learning and he's grasping things and taking it all in. I am someone who asks a million questions, I always want to learn, I always want to grow. I feel like being stagnant is boring. Matt is familiar to me, he's some guys I knew in high school who wanted to be a part of the arts, but were scared or were intimidated because of what that might look like or what that might sound like or how it might make them appear. I have always wanted to sing, I have always wanted to act, I've always wanted to dance and I've been doing it since I was a child on and off. I know what it's like to be, "That's not what the status quo is. Why would you want to do that when you can do this?" I think Matt is me mixed with some other people that I know. There are so many times that football players are too cool or too cautious or too concerned with how they look or how they appear. I wanted Matt to be fun and just enjoy the moment, if we're in cowboy hats, we're in cowboy hats. There is an episode coming up when we're in wigs, if we're in wigs, we're in wigs and just going for it and not holding back or being too concerned with opinions or judgments. That's the problem, and I think nowadays too many kids are concerned with people opinions and judgments, and how that's going to effect them. At the end of the day the only thing that matters is if you're happy and if your own judgment for yourself is a good one. If you can look in the mirror and say, "I'm Matt Rutherford, or I'm Dijon Talton, and I'm happy with it," that's all that's important. That's what I wanted to bring to Matt.
