Max Adler told gay glossy Out that he
is excited to return to Glee for its sixth and final season.
At the show's start, Adler's Dave
Karofsky endlessly tormented Kurt (played by Chris Colfer) for being
gay. In a later season, Dave attempted to kill himself after Kurt
rejected his advances and his teammates bullied him when they
discovered his sexuality.
Now as the series prepares to take its
final bow, Dave returns to begin a romance with Blaine (Darren
Criss), who is on the rebound after breaking up with Kurt.
Adler told Out.com that he was
surprised to hear from producers.
“I definitely thought I was done with
Glee forever,” he
“I was excited to get to work with
Darren [Criss] and Chris [Colfer] again. Six years later, we have
such history both on and off set, and there's such a rapport.”
“I'm just excited to have the
opportunity to be back on set,” he added. “It wasn't about who
I'm romantically linked to, it was more the fact that they chose to
show that Karofsky has gone from this homophobic bully to now have
accepted being homosexual and being out and comfortable enough to be
seen with a man in public, at a bar and a football game. I just
thought that was a really nice, complete arc. To watch season 1 and
then to see this, it's a full circle that's a nice ending for all the
fans of Karofsky to see him happy and see that he's OK post-suicide
attempt. He's smiling and happy and content and not a care in the
world. What a big shift for him personally.”
