Alex Newell Will Appear On Glee And Reveals Who He Wants As His Love Interest

August 22, 2011 09:57 PM by Veronica Dudo

Oxygen’s hit reality TV competition, The Glee Project, introduced fans to an entire cast of aspiring singers and actors who all shared one common goal–to be on the TV series Glee. Week after week, Glee creator Ryan Murphy made the tough decision to send one of the contenders home. All were competing for a seven episode guest starring role on FOX’s hit TV show. Alex Newell didn’t win but will still be on the show. Keep reading to find out who he wants his love interest to be on the show!

The final four included: Damian McGinty Jr., Samuel Larsen, Alex Newell and Lindsay Pearce. Ultimately Murphy selected two winners: Damian and Samuel. Ryan also had another surprise up his sleeve–Alex and Lindsay will each appear on a two episode arc.

In the moment you were standing on the stage waiting for the winner to be announced, what name did you think would be called?
I thought it was going to be one of the three of them (Damian, Samuel and Lindsay).

How hard has it been to keep the results a secret?
Pretty easy.

Who are you most excited to meet from Glee?
I want to meet Lea because she is the epitome of what I want to be for a Broadway actor.

Do you have any idea the type of character you will be portraying on Glee?
I don’t know anything but as long as I get to sing with Amber Riley I’m all right!

If you could pick your love interest on Glee who would you pick and why?
Karofsky! Karofsky, Karofsky, Karofsky because he’s so adorable–I don’t know I just want to be with Karofsky.

After watching the episodes of The Glee Project, is there anything that you would like to improve bout yourself?
For me it was learning how to be more subtle because I am a stage actor and I know how to fill a stage with just my personality and what I’m doing and I guess there’s the contrast of having to look natural when you’re on television or you’re on the screen or on a film and I find myself doing that now on stage and directors yell at me for it but at the same time they commend me on it because it shows me embodying the character more than trying to be the character.

    Alex is amazing, I’m so glad he is getting his change with Glee. His voice is outstanding and I hope the folks at Glee give him a spot where his dynamic voice can be heard, bring on Alex, hopefully for more than the two arcs proposed for him. Everyone has tears in the eyes and heartache when he sings “I am changing” Sure hope he gets to sing that on Glee.
