Glee’s Mike O’Malley on How Burt Will React to Klaine
If you love Glee, chances are you also love Mike O’Malley. The veteran sitcom actor has shined as Burt Hummel, Kurt’s gruff-but-understanding father — and despite landing a new Fox pilot, Mike assured Vulture that he’ll continue to melt our hearts on Glee. But will he be upset that Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) are dating?
“I don’t know,” he told Vulture. “I’m not saying this to avoid spoiling things, but I’ve only shot one more episode where Blaine was not involved, Episode 18, and then we have five episodes after that, and I’m not in 19. And I don’t think they’ve even written the last four. They know what’s going on, but we kind of find out the night before. It’s like getting a present!”
It’s a present for us, too! The star also says he hopes to sing in a future episode. “I’d do "Bloodbuzz Ohio" by The National. ‘I was carried to Ohio on a swarm of bees’ — it even deals with Ohio!”
