Max Adler previously confirmed that he is reprising his role as Dave Karofsky in the sixth and final season of "Glee," and while he cannot reveal too much information about his four-episode story arc, he recently opened up how grateful he is to be back on the show to give his character some closure.
"Glee reached out and asked if I'd be interested in reprising the role and coming back and being a part of the final season, and I was very excited to get that opportunity," he told Wetpaint. "'Glee' has a special place in my heart, as does that role, so I decided to be a part of the final season."
"It's nice to be back and be able to close out the character and be part of the final season," he added in a recent interview with Celebuzz. "The show has meant so much to me, and the character has meant so much to me, and so it's nice to come back and finish it off with all the producers and the writers and the cast who are now friends. It's really a cool experience."
He said that just to be on "Glee" for an episode was already a dream come true. "But now, to be part of its run, it has just been better that I could have imagined," he added.
The 28-year-old actor said that he was so excited when he landed the part, because for one it was a show from Ryan Murphy about show choir, which he has also done before. Another reason is that "Nip/Tuck," a medical drama created also by Murphy, is his favorite show of all time.
When asked which cast member he hangs out the most with, the "Switch at Birth" actor responded, "Probably Darren Criss (Blaine). We've become close friends. We just watch TV, talk about life and discuss things."
Later in his interview with Celebuzz, Adler said that hearing amazing stories from fans about how "their relationships with their families and friends have improved or gotten so much more clear and open and honest because of the show and because of Karofsky's storyline" was the most meaningful and impactful thing to him about being part of the show.
When asked about the not so good fan reaction on his character's return especially that it has been rumored that Karofsky is now "romantically entangled" with Blaine, Adler told TooFab: The backlash means fans "care, because they're invested in not only the story lines, but the characters and the show," "I think that's a credit to the writers and producers that six seasons in, you still have these really passionate, die-hard fans. I think that's a good thing."
