Mark Salling Interview -- Exclusive

Mark Salling sat down with for an exclusive interview at Roosevelt Field Mall in New York on Monday (November 3). Here’s what the 27-year-old Glee stud shared:

JJ: What was it like performing at the World Series?
It was an honor. We were basically riding [on co-star Amber Riley]‘s coat tails, and she killed it.

JJ: Tell me about your solo debut Jericho. And are you continuing to pursue a solo career?
It was before Glee — it was in early 2008. I produced and developed the tracks on that but I’m always writing and performing. It’s just a matter of what Uncle Fox and Aunt Sony are going to allow me to do. (JJ Note: HAHAHA!)

JJ: Glee recently got the rights to use Madonna’s entire catalog of music. Is there a song of hers you’d like to perform?
I’ve been dreaming of singing Madonna since I was a little girl. (laughs) So this was a really big thing! I would say, what’s one of her songs? I mean. I’m a dude I don’t even know. (laughs)

FYI: Mark was the first one out during musical chairs on Tuesday’s It’s On With Alexa Chung. Then Lea, Kevin, Amber, Cory, Chris and Jenna. Dianna Agron is the Glee musical chairs champion!

  • naty

    what color are his eyes????
    sooooo hottttttttttttt!!!!

  • anna


  • Colleen


  • Austyn


    His eyes are brown….Im pretty sure

  • MarkSallingIsHot


    Mark Salling is hot and he even looks like his
    lineage may consist of being ’1/2-Mexican’
    or maybe even ’1/4-Black’ (like Wentworth
    Miller’s or Mariah Cary’s) or something.

    So … what’s the ‘big deal’?

    Why does Mark seem to feel uncomfortable with
    learning more about; openly acknowledging and
    publicly embracing his family’s full lineage?

    Being ‘Mixed-Race’ is both totally cool
    just so common nowadays — so it’s
    not like it’s scandalous or anything.

    Even Vin Diesel (who ‘looks white’ and has
    never met his biological father – who he
    does not know because his mom will not
    tell him who he is) openly describes himself
    as ‘multi-racial’ and / or as ‘a-person-of-color’.

    Also, Wentworth Miller is generally cast as a White
    character in his many roles (ex. Prison Break) even
    though he’s of ‘Mixed-Race’ (1/4 Black) lineage.

    So — what’ the big deal about learning about,
    knowing and speaking openly of one’s lineage?

    If Mark’s a Mixed-Guy who’s playing the role
    of a (Jewish) white-guy — we (his MANY
    fans) ALL think that’s pretty darn cool. = )
