Who Should Elton John Play on Glee? The Cast Weighs In
The cast of Glee is already brainstorming character ideas for Elton John... if he were to appear on their hit show. They’ve got some goodies!
"I think he should be, like, Puck's next door neighbor who he hangs out with all the time but nobody knows about their friendship," Dianna Agron said at the SAG Awards. "Puck's father isn't around, so it entails everything from golfing together to washing dishes at night. They make dinner for each other. They listen to music. It's a true father-son relationship."
Along the same lines: “Elton John should play, oh my gosh, maybe [former McKinley choir director] Sandy Ryerson's father," Amber Riley (Mercedes) said. "Or he should be the leader of one our rivals."
Chord Overstreet (Sam) sorta agrees. “I think he should play a professor of some sort, a teacher — a history teacher!"
Harry Shum Jr. (Mike) does Chord one better. "I think he should play the stern principal that comes in and takes over for like a day, and then see how he would run the glee club."
Would Harry like to toss a slushie at Elton John? "You know what," he said, "I would do it just to say that I did it. I'll tell my kids that I threw a slushie at Elton John. No disrespect because it's acting. It's all acting."
