Glimpses of Max Adler in Glee episode “Opening Ceremony”
happytroyboy Thanks @MrMaxAdler @DarrenCriss @druidDUDE for being awesome at @youngstory!!
- Starry Constellatiion Magazine: You have gotten a lot of love from fans from your portrayal of Karofsky on "Glee." Are you shocked by fan interest to get closure for the character?
- Max Adler: I'm torn because I always felt like it was left incredibly open. I always thought there was so much more to tell and to discover. Me, personally, I really wanted to know what happened with Karofsky and if he and Kurt remained friends. Why did no one else mention it when everyone was so heartbroken about what happened? How did his parents take it? Did he go to college? It wasn't just for me, but for fans of Karofsky to see how he would react and how he would handle life. People strongly identified with the character and I think it was kind of left open ended with no resolution and closure. Honestly, I was disappointed. "Glee" came around a few months ago and they were going to put together a scene with me, Darren Criss and Grant Gustin. I can't say where or what was happening, but it was just a scene with the three of us that would show you where Karofsky ended up and what he was doing now. It was very quickly resolved in two minutes. It didn't work out because of Grant doing his show and me doing mine. The schedules just never clicked. I think that it is almost more powerful now to not have such closure just handed to you. I think it is more powerful to have left it open ended with the way it was and fill in your own blank and story. Everyone can see Karofsky where they want to see Karofsky. And I think that's kind of the best way to leave him and leave him on the note where we last saw him and just have hope. I think to just solve that and show the answer would actually weaken the perspective of Dave Karofsky. As an audience member, sometimes the stuff I remember the most and the stuff I think about at night while falling asleep or think about years later is the stuff that wasn't so handed down to you or so obvious. It was kind of left open and choose your own ending. I think that kind of hits home and resonates more. I think looking back at it now, at this point in my life and my career, I am happy with the way it wrapped up and the work on that show. Having the support of the fans for the role on the show meant the world to me and still does.

THIS IS ME: MAX ADLER (Zooey Magazine)
You probably recognize Max Adler from his role as Dave, the bully from “Glee.” But we got to see a whole different side of the goofy actor who was all smiles and the furthest thing from intimidating. We sat down with him at Studio Café in Studio City, one of the many restaurants where he waited tables before he got his big break with “Glee.”
His tales of countless restaurant jobs – and getting fired for everything from toilet paper to a 75-cent muffin – kept us laughing all morning, but his Hollywood story is truly inspiring. While we are sure that Max makes a killer cappuccino, we can’t wait to see what else he will do on screen!
