Chord Overstreet

I’m not really one for watching Glee, but the advert for one issue caught my eye and that was Sam flashing of his abs, so I had to watch it and see what all the fuss is about.


Chord Overstreet (born 1989) is an American actor, singer, and musician, best known for his role as Sam Evans on the television series Glee.


Overstreet was born in Nashville, Tennessee, the son of makeup artist Julie and country music singer-songwriter Paul Overstreet. The third of six children, he was named after the musical term of the same name. His brother Nash is also a musician, and is a member of the band Hot Chelle Rae. Encouraged by his parents to pursue music, he started playing the mandolin at an early age, and moved on to the drums and guitar. He is also a songwriter, but is unsigned. In his teenage years, he modeled for advertisements for Famous Footwear and Gap.


Beginning with the show's second season, Overstreet plays the recurring role of transfer student and athlete Sam Evans on the American musical series Glee. He landed the role after auditioning with Commodores' "Easy" and Gavin DeGraw's "I Don't Want to Be". He later sang "Billionaire" by Travie McCoy featuring Bruno Mars as a studio test, eventually going on to sing this in the season premiere "Audition", along with "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" by Poison. He played the role of Rocky in the The Rocky Horror Show-themed episode "The Rocky Horror Glee Show".


Chord is definitely someone we are going to be seeing more off, with them looks and on mainstream TV.
