The second we saw Mark Salling and Cory Monteith dressed as Blaine and Kurt on last night’s Glee, some of us crossed our fingers that the whole two (!) hours would feature this silly stunt.
“It would have been a little bit of overkill [to swap characters for the whole episode],” Jenna Ushkowitz, whose character Tina set off the whole “Freaky Friday” sequence, told VH1 Celebrity this morning, when she stopped by for Big Morning Buzz Live. We were thrilled to see Tina get to show off her chops in full Rachel diva-mode, even if it was all just a dream, and hope that the actress gets more to do as a senior at McKinley next season.
More than anything, all that role-switching seemed like a blast for the actors. So, who did Ushkowitz think had the most fun in someone else’s shoes? “I think that was Mark Salling,” she said of the actor who normally plays Puck. “I think he actually, secretly really loved to be Blaine, with the bow ties. But I think everyone had a really good time. I think Dianna [Agron’s] Sugar was really, really funny. Cory Monteith, too, playing Kurt.”
And who surprised everyone in his/her new role? “Harry [Shum Jr.] as Joe, with the dreads,” she said of her onscreen boyfriend. “We were not expecting it to turn out as great as it did. It was awesome. His looks were just spot on.”
Who do you think played another character best during the “Props” episode?
