Greg In Hollywood chats with Chord Overstreet about the great bromance on “Glee” between Sam & Blaine
Kurt Hummel may be the love of Blaine Anderson’s life on Glee but Blaine also has a lot of love in his heart for best friend Sam Evans.
In fact, the BFF’s, portrayed by Darren Criss and Chord Overstreet, even have their own monikers: Blam or Slaine.
And they have navigated the gay-straight friendship and its unique dynamics beautifully.
In a 2013 episode titled Guilty Pleasures, Blaine sings a beautiful version of Against All Odds and it is clear to all – including Sam, that he is singing about his crush on the sweet, trouty mouth Sam.
Later Sam says to Blaine: “I’m your guilty pleasure.”
Sam has known about Blaine’s crush on him for a while, and he has no problem with it. He finds it flattering and admits that he would’ve been a little offended if it didn’t exist.
At PaleyFest last Friday, I asked Overstreet about the Blaine-Sam relationship.
‘It was one of my favorite things because Darren was just a fun guy to hang out with and we had a blast shooting stuff,’ Chord said. ‘I always felt like we were on the same wavelength as far as the scenes and the energy and we always got to kind of goof around. It was always fun. I think it’s kind of great to see that, they were two buddies hanging out.’
