Cory Monteith

Where you may have seen him: ABC Family's "Kyle XY" and MTV's "Kaya" Character: Finn Cory on Finn: “Finn is the quarterback, and he has a passion for singing but he’s trying to uphold his golden boy jock-y image, you know, as being the cool guy in the school. He’s struggling between doing what he wants and being a cool guy. That’s his conflict. His jock-y friends and cheerleader girlfriend give him a hard time for it. So it’s the struggle to do what he wants versus what other people want him to do.” On his audition for "Glee": "I ignored the fact that they wanted a tape of me singing and dancing because it's not my strong suit, so I just sent the acting. Of course, I had to send the rest anyways. I sent a tape of myself singing REO Speedwagon's 'Can't Fight This Feeling,' but I did it like an '80s music video where I'm all looking out into the distance. It was really cheesy." On why he hates the "High School Musical" comparison: "How do I put this? 'Glee' is like 'High School Musical' if 'High School Musical' had its stomach punched and its lunch money stolen." Fox
