When asked who should pose naked for PETA next, Lea Michele recently suggested her Glee costar Cory Monteith. So I caught up with Cory on Sunday at a benefit brunch to see if he's down to drop trou for charity.
"Wow. Naked, huh?" he said. "I don't know what I think about that. It's pretty extreme."
But the hunky actor says he's already nearly nude for an upcoming episode...
"I do not wear the gold lamé briefs," he explained, in regards to the rumor that he'll don the infamous metallic undies for the Rocky Horror themed Glee episode. "But I am equally scantily clad."
Hot! And what's in store for his and Lea's characters, Finn and Rachel, on the show?
"There is a future," he promised, when we talked at the Rape Treatment Center's benefit brunch. "I'm paraphrasing Ryan Murphy but I think he's gonna put Finn and Rachel together for the second season and he's gonna see what they look like as a couple by the end of the season. You're gonna see where the relationship goes."
Clearly Cory's not spilling too much on the couple's fate, but fellow castmate Heather Morris offered her two cents on their on-screen chemistry at the charity event.
"Their love interest is hysterical," Heather offered, "When you're 16...they act so funny around each other, because he's so tall and she's so little and then they're awkwardly like trying to date and figure it out. I think they're funny."
They so are, right?
