Stephen Tobolowsky talks about Glee on The Tobolowsky Files

February 14, 2010

Stephen Tobolowsky, Glee‘s very own Sandy Ryerson, talks to his fans about his experiences on the set of the show on this week’s episode of The Tobolowsky Files, Stephen’s weekly podcast of stories about life, love, and the entertainment industry. The podcast is always good for a laugh each week, and this week is no different as he tells us about his audition for Sandy (comparing the experience to a first date) and his rehearsals for the “I Wanna Sex You Up” number in “Acafellas.” One of my favourite lines from the episode came near the beginning of the Glee segment, in which Stephen tells us about his initial thoughts on the Glee script:

“When I read Glee, I had a different feeling inside. I didn’t feel like the show was kitschy or campy, I felt heartened. It made me feel good about humankind, which is not an easy task these days. And I couldn’t really pinpoint the ingredients that made me feel so good because, to be honest, everything in the show we had seen before. We had seen the high school setting, the sincere teacher, the mean teacher, the mean cheerleaders, the cute football player with the heart of gold, the gay singing pedophile – all familiar characters in high school comedies. But there was a tangible positiveness in the wacky humour and music that made me want to audition.”
