Another 'Glee' Cast Member Has a Secret Hotel Background
We already knew that "Glee's" Quinn Fabray aka Dianna Agron grew up in Hyatt Hotels in Northern California but now we learn, conveniently on the day "Glee" returns to TV, that Coach Ken Tanaka played by Patrick Gallagher was once a doorman at The Intercontinental Yorkville Hotel in Toronto.
He recently told the Globe and Mail that he fantasizes about returning to the hotel as a paying guest. Presumably, he had a nicer uniform than the one he sports on "Glee" which is usually too-tight short shorts, knee-high socks and a fanny pack.
And given the attention that the show gets from fans, we bet the Intercontinental would totally invite him back for a free stay in one of their suites, along with fellow cast member and Canuck, Cory Monteith. Just think of all the publicity!
Meanwhile, the rest of the main "Glee" cast is still on a mega-promotional tour. When they hit up Chicago the other week to film an appearance on "Oprah", they spent the night partying at Jbar inside The James Hotel. The Chicago Tribune reports that Mark Salling (Puck), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Heather Morris (Brittany), Harry Shum Jr. (Mike) and Naya Rivera (Santana) sipped Belvedere vodka and ate cheesecake lollipops from the David Burke's Primehouse restaurant until 2am.
We love hotels and all but we're just excited to see "Glee" back where it belongs--on TV every week.
