Max Adler, who plays closeted football player Dave Karofsky on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, has suggested his self-loathing character might commit suicide.

Karofsky torments openly gay McKinley High student Kurt Hummel, played by Chris Colfer, presumably because he's gay.

But in a recent episode, Karofsky shocked millions of fans when he reached in to kiss Hummel instead of delivering a promised beat down in the men's locker room.

In an interview with TV Guide, Adler suggested the conflicted student's feeling will be aired out in the upcoming episode featuring Lady Gaga's gay anthem Born This Way.

“That song is the main focal point and message of the whole [April 26] episode as far as people tackling their insecurities and overcoming things like sexuality or physical appearance,” Adler said.

“With Karofsky … he could join the glee club and sing a big solo as an out, proud guy, or he could go the opposite route and go home and hang himself like many people have done. Imagine that episode, that message.”

Glee Executive Producer Brad Falchuk, however, denied such a storyline was being pursued.

Glee doesn't really feel like the show for that,” Falchuk said. “We like to get dramatic and push things, but that didn't seem the kind of story we wanted to tell.”
