Cory Monteith, 28, (catch Glee on Fox Tuesdays at 8 p.m.) shares the 25 things you don't know about him with UsMagazine.com.

1. I'm handy around the house. I hang TVs, fix water heaters and drill holes in stuff.

2. I just got a new drill.

3. I play a lot of ultra-violent video games.

4. I own more unmatched black socks than 25 normal people.

5. I'm a pretty good snowboarder but a terrible surfer.

6. I love high-fiving. So ironic — and '80s.

7. I prefer green candy.

8. I own 20 hoodies.

9. I regularly wear all 20.

10. I used to do tech support for MSN in Canada.

11. When I see a clock that says 12:34, I say, "One two three four."

12. I used to pretend I was asleep, then read encyclopedias under the covers as a kid.

13. I'm good at naming state capitals (see No. 12).

14. I like driving the car on empty, thinking, What if I ran out of gas?

18. I'm a fan of trail mix — but just the dried fruit.

19. I still doubt whether you really need to wash new sheets before you use them.

20. Before Glee, I did a lot of horror movies.

21. I support arts education in schools. I recently started working with Apple & Eve Fruitables and the VH1 Save the Music Foundation to search for America's Best School Music Mash-Ups. (Go to facebook.com/appleandeve for school mash-up contest rules!)
