Whether making hilarious passive-aggressive digs at diva Rachel or asking love interest Tina if she wants to “get up on this,” Kevin McHale’s Artie — a skinny nerd with the heart of LL Cool J — gains more fans each week on Glee. It’s well known at this point that, in real life, McHale isn’t in a wheelchair, spent some time in boy band NLT, and is quite the stylish dude. But fresh off of filming the season-one finale, the 21-year old actor gave Vulture some further insight into his life on and off Glee, and gamely answered some commenter questions, too. Yes, everyone — he’ll be rapping soon.

For nearly two years, Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff shared a stage in the Off Broadway and Broadway productions of “Spring Awakening” as Wendla and Melchior, the German youths who share feelings, a beating and many more intimate acts during an ill-fated romance. After enduring that for eight shows a week, Ms. Michele and Mr. Groff did not get sick of each other, and instead forged a friendship that, as you’ll shortly see, is unusual, even for theater people.

It’s a friendship that has lasted as Mr. Groff has continued his career in theater (“Prayer for My Enemy,” “The Singing Forest”) and film (“Taking Woodstock”) and Ms. Michele has become a star of the Fox series “Glee” (which Alessandra Stanley and Jon Caramanica debated in Arts & Leisure). On Tuesday the actors are reunited in the spring premiere of “Glee,” when Mr. Groff joins the cast as Jesse St. James, the lead singer of a rival high-school choir determined to make trouble for Rachel Berry, the aspiring superstar played by Ms. Michele.

In these excerpts from a recent conversation with ArtsBeat, conducted while Mr. Groff was on a break and Ms. Michele attempted to drive herself to her stylist’s house, the performers talked about their work together on “Spring Awakening” and “Glee,” and their unusual friendship, which manifested itself before a single question could be asked.

No one wants to go through life known as “the Asian dude.” But for Harry Shum, Jr., it’s a dream come true. The 27-year-old plays football player and show-choir member Mike Chang on the hit show “Glee,” but he’s much better known for being “the other Asian,” a nickname dubbed by Jane Lynch’s scary cheerleading coach character, Sue Sylvester.

THE GLEE CLUB STRIKES A POSE ON AN ALL-NEW “GLEE”
TUESDAY, APRIL 20, ON FOX

It’s tough to steal the comedic spotlight when Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) rides roughshod over anyone in her path on “Glee.”

“You two are the stupidest teens I’ve ever encountered,” Sue tells a couple of students in an upcoming episode. “And that’s saying something. I once taught a cheerleading seminar to a young Sarah Palin.”

But a student character, who began in the background, has emerged as one of the show’s most reliable comic voices.

Heather Morris stars as blond, ponytailed, drop-dead dumb Brittany, a cheerleader most often seen with her best friend, fellow Cheerio Santana (Naya Rivera).
