Glee alum Max Adler is set to recur on ABC Family’s drama series Switched at Birth. Adler, repped by CESD, Justice and Ponder and attorney Derek Kroeger, will play Tank, a fraternity brother Bay befriends in her college art class. He will make their debut in the third season premiere airing in January. He joins fellow new recurring RJ Mitte whio plays Campbell, a pre-med college student paralyzed by a snowboarding accident who works in the free clinic with Daphne (Katie Leclerc).
Something to be gleeful about! Max Adler is engaged to his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Bronstein, the actor revealed to Us Weekly. The actor — who previously had a recurring role on Glee as Dave Karofsky — actually popped the question over a year ago while visiting Rome.
"She was getting ready for an hour or so, so I went outside to take a stroll to some ring shops," Adler told Us of the impromptu proposal at the EMMYS: 12th annual Heller Awards event in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Thursday, Sept. 19. Fellow actress Bronstein added: "Max was sneaking off and picking rings unbeknownst to me to surprise me. The ring is from Rome."
"There are so many things we want to do. One day we say we want to get married in a winery in Malibu. Then it’s a rooftop in New York. Vegas, elope to a chapel. London. We don’t even know," the 27-year-old actor told Us. "So when we figure it out, we’ll plan it. But right now we’re having a good time."
The couple haven’t gotten a chance to plan their wedding yet because of traveling and new projects, but they have already solidified one detail — the Glee cast will all be invited! “Everybody. I want them to sing,” he said of his former costars. “I already committed Darren [Criss] to giving a song.”
Adler appeared on the FOX series from 2009 to 2012 as school jock and bully Karofsky who was later revealed to be a closeted gay teen. With the FOX musical comedy now behind him, Adler is now “filming a very juicy part on CSI.” Bronstein is currently playing the role of Lillian Childress in a production of Sherlock Through the Looking Glass at the Whitmore Lindley Theater in North Hollywood.

Max Adler, best known for his role as Dave Karofsky on the hit television series Glee, has agreed to play the character of Baker in Riot Studios’ upcoming feature, Believe Me.
Adler attended Horizon High School in Scottsdale, AZ, where he gained recognition as a First Chair All-State show choir member before moving to Los Angeles to pursue show business full time.
Adler’s artistic background positioned him well for a role in Glee, FOX’s musical comedy-drama that has won four Golden Globe Awards. The program has drawn both praise and ire for its willingness to tackle the relationships, sexuality, and social issues facing students in the show’s choir competition circuit.
Initially cast in a minor recurring role as school jock and bully Dave Karofsky, Adler’s strong performances led Glee creator Ryan Murphy to reconsider his position. The writers shocked the world by revealing that Karofsky, a notorious bully of openly gay student Kurt, was in fact a closeted homosexual himself. In one of the most poignant episodes in the series’ history (“On My Way”), Adler’s character attempts suicide after he is brutally outed at school.
Co-producer of Believe Me, Michael Allen, was blown away by Adler’s reading of Baker.
“He had a really terrific audition,” Allen said. “Baker’s the most loveable character and Max looks and acts the part. He’s also a big fan of the story. He’s really excited to work on the project with us, and we feel the same way.”
Adler is a noted social activist. Although happily heterosexual off-screen, Adler’s prominent role on Glee has positioned him as a champion for the LGBT community. He has helped the It Gets Better Project, an organization that aims at preventing suicide among LGBT youth, and he also avidly supports the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Adler appeared alongside Liam Hemsworth in the 2013 Vietnam War drama Love and Honor and recently completed a starring role opposite Stephen Lang (Avatar) in Dylan Baker’s directorial debut, 23 Blast, about a football star who’s suddenly stricken with irreversible blindness.
