Chord Overstreet: It's all about my body

Chord Overstreet has joked he was "being used" for his body in Glee.

The American actor-and singer joined the cast of the hit TV series last year as Sam Evans - a transfer student and athlete - and left the show in May.

Many of his scenes involved the blonde hunk being shirtless, with one standing out more than most. Chord donned gold metallic hotpants in one episode and has joked that the semi-naked scenes are all that he's good for.

"I think I'm being used and I luckily had a decent body when I shot the scenes but it all fell apart and I'm trying to get back on the right track," he told Gay Times magazine.

Chord is appreciated for his body though. He has a famous fan in British music icon Sir Elton John.

"Elton came up to me and knew who I was and started talking to me and was like, 'I'm a big fan, love the gold shorts,' and he started talking to me and I freaked out because I'm like the biggest Elton John fan and I couldn't believe he approached me and started talking about the gold shorts and my abs," he exclaimed.

Harry Shum Jr. plays Mike Chang in the FOX TV show. The 29-year-old actor has revealed the secret behind the cast's buff bodies.

"Under the stage we're working out in between the numbers, we've got weights and pull-ups and stuff," he explained.

"It's pretty funny, you open it and we're like 'Hey! Get out of here!'"
