Curt [Mega] also mentioned that when he first tested for Glee, it was for the character that eventually became Sam, but he had to audition with Finn’s lines.
“Robert, the casting director, told us ‘Don’t try and copy Cory’s performance, you just won’t get it’. And when you read the script – it’s just words on a page and you realize how much he brought of himself to that character. His quirks, his vulnerability. I remember thinking at the time how he brought so much to that role."
