Tuesday Morning Man: Chord Overstreet!
“I laughed when I read that in the script,” Overstreet tells Zap2it. “I mean, I always got compliments or comments on my lips because I do have big lips. They definitely write about the actors’ actual features, which I think is funny. It’s something everybody’s thinking and when you actually hear it on the show, it’s like ‘I can’t believe they said that.’”
The actor hails from Nashville, Tenn., and his unusual name is no accident, setting him on a musical path in life.
“My real name is Chord Overstreet,” he confirmed to Zap2It. “I actually got my name because my dad is in the music business as a songwriter. I was the third one in my family born, and there are three notes in a chord, so that’s how they came up with my name.”
Of acting on Glee he says: “It’s great working with all the cast. I really think Jane Lynch is hilarious, she’s got the best timing, she’s one of the people I was really looking forward to working with, but I was also looking forward to working with [producer/writers Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan] — those guys. Each episode we get is funnier than the next. It’s all jokes and shenanigans.”
