Born March 17, 1989 in Nashville, Tennessee, Chord Overstreet is best-known for his role on Glee. The son of country music singer-songwriter Paul Overstreet, he is one of six children. Like his father, the musically-inclined star plays the piano, guitar, bass and drums.
Overstreet landed minor roles on an episode of iCarly and the pilot for ABC’s No Ordinary Family before hitting it big on FOX. Portraying transfer student Sam Evans on Glee, the actor quickly became a fan favorite when his character began romancing head cheerleader Quinn Fabray (Dianna Agron).
Though the actor was briefly linked to Rumer Willis in October 2010, he insisted that the two were merely acquaintances. The following month, Playgirl offered the rising star $100,000 to pose semi-nude; Overstreet declined their invitation to appear in the magazine.
Overstreet will next appear in the film A Warrior’s Heart opposite Twilight actors Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz.
