‘Glee’ Newbie Jacob Artist Spills on His “Bad Boy” Role, Hopes for Season Four
“‘C’ minus! That’s a Puckerman ‘A’ plus! I’m graduating!” exclaimed an ecstatic Noah Puckerman (Mark Salling) in May’s deteriorate culmination of Glee. We all know that Puck usually hardly squeaked by with a diploma, though as one badass leaves McKinley High, another is on his approach in. There’s a new Puckasaurus entrance to Lima, and he’s being played by soon-to-be swoon-worthy actor Jacob Artist.
Hollywood.com held adult with a Glee newbie during a Fox TCA all-star celebration Monday night in Beverly Hills, and we got him to brief sum on New Directions’ latest member: Jake Puckerman.
“I’m personification Puck’s younger half-brother,” beams Artist. “There’s kind of a small bit of a bad child vibe using in a family and an attitude, so we’ll see where that takes him and if it gets in his approach or not… hopefully not.” Hmm, something tells me Ryan Murphy isn’t going to let this impression strut around a halls of McKinley drama-free.
If you’re wondering if Artist is “too cold for school” in genuine life, we’re gratified to tell we that that couldn’t be serve from a truth. A longtime fan of a Fox mega-hit, Artist is both shamed and ecstatic by his new opportunity. “I’m estactic about it!” he gushes. “I feel like this uncover has turn so most some-more than a show. It has overwhelmed so many people and we adore a message, so to be a partial of it in ubiquitous is usually going to be unequivocally fun. I’m excited.”
For now, a 19-year-old actor is blissfully unknowingly of a heated integrate rivalries that exist within a Glee fandemonium. When we asked if he is vehement to accept his initial ‘shipper name’, Artist responded with a undetermined nonetheless darling look: “My shipper name? What does that mean?” Oh honey, your innocence is some-more lovely than a Diet Coke!
After quickly explaining a regulation we motionless to give a youngster a cocktail quiz. If Jake and Sugar (Vanessa Lengies) were to turn romantically intertwined, what would fans call them? “Oh, it’d be like Jugar or Sake! Okay, yeah, that’s going to be interesting. What’s it called again? A shipper name? Yeah, we’ll see how that pans out.” Somewhere out in a blogosphere, fans are frantically formulating a new “Jugar” tab on Tumblr.
But before Artist can turn one half of a new integrate craze, he needs to indeed accommodate a cast. Artist says he usually talked with a handful of a core organisation during a Fox bash, “I’ve kind of been connecting around. we met Lea [Michele], Harry [Shum Jr.], Amber [Riley], Chris [Colfer], and Chord [Overstreet] and Matt Morrison. That’s it.”
So what can fans design to see from Puck’s “troubled” small bro this season? Artist admits, “They’ve kind of kept me in a dark, though it should be unequivocally fun, I’m unequivocally vehement to see what they have in store.” Although Artist has no thought what is entrance adult for his beginner change ego, he does have a few equipment on his Glee wish list. The immature actor shares, “I would make him dance a lot usually since we was a dancer, so we consider it would be fun to get to implement a small bit of that as most as possible.” we consider we might have found Mike Chang’s replacement!
And as distant as strain choice goes, Artist hopes that a show’s writers will incorporate his try-out strain — “Never Say Never” by The Fray — into an tangible scene. Sounding familiar, Gleeks? It’s good famous that Michele, Riley, Colfer and Cory Monteith showcased their try-out songs in a pilot, and Artist is anticipating to lift on a tradition. “We’ll see what happens, though it would be so most fun to do that!” Fingers crossed for you, small Puckerman!
