Meet the guy who will be catching Kurt's eye and flipping Finn's world upside down.

Chord Overstreet, pretty ironic he landed a role on Glee with a first name like that, will play football player Sam Evans. The transfer student will start a bromance with Finn in the season premiere on September 21, but Sam slowly starts to give Finn a run for his money as quarterback and male lead of glee club. He won't, however, try to steal Ms. Berry, too. SPOILER ALERT: Sam is going to become Kurt's first boyfriend and together they'll be named McKinley's Prom King and King.

Before joining Glee, Chord had a brief stint on iCarly as Eric. His dad is a singer-songwriter so music is in his blood.

"I would love to do a country song on Glee," the Nashville native spills, "We get an episode at a time, so as far as the storyline goes I don't know if it will happen, but hopefully. That would be fun."
Chord's also down for a King of Pop tribute episode. "I would love to cover Michael Jackson, too. I want to do at least one Michael Jackson song. I like 'Beat It' a lot."
