"I grew up in Clovis, California. It’s a very, very Conservative, you know, Republicans everywhere type town. For as long as I can remember, one of the biggest political issues in our country currently is gay marriage and all that type of stuff… I recently went back for a visit and I still saw, even though the election was almost a year ago, there was still signs that said "Yes on Prop 8, Ban Gay Marriage" still in people’s front yards. And you know, people there weren’t just harassed when I was growing up, they were killed for being gay. So my first reaction was, "Oh my God, I’m going to be gay on network television. That’s terrifying." But now there’s been so much great material and so much hope… I was a little scared at first, but now I’m so happy and I’m so proud of the stuff that’s been on the show. I think it maybe was a way for me to rebel against that whole way, is, "Fine. You said it was wrong when I was growing up? Well now I’m gonna be that on TV and, you know, I’m probably gonna be the face for gay rights for the rest of my life!"
"Yeah, I think we’re gonna start shooting the last season [of Glee]…mid-September, I think? Around that time. That’s what I’ve been told, yeah."
"Very violent for the baby."

"I really only let about a tenth of the projects that I’m constantly working on known at a time because I have very, very passionate fans so they get very, very excited about things and so sometimes when something doesn’t go through it’s so disappointing for them and me but no, I’ll probably be very, very busy in the next few years just from all kinds of things that I have my hands in right now."
"It’s so far been so much fun. I went out to London to start prep work for it and it was an amazing experience, just like going around London and seeing where he lived and, you know, working with people, meeting the fellow actors. It has an amazing cast so far and I am so excited for that project."
"I’ve always been a superhero fanatic. Probably because they always start out as nerds, and, you know, Peter Parker, and they always become something great. I think as a young nerd, that was always the story that I identified with."
