Cory Monteith as Finn Hudson
Finn Hudson is a quarterback for McKinley High’s football team, with the beautiful cheerleader Quinn Fabray as his girlfriend. When glee coach Will Schuester heard Finn sing and wanted him to join the glee club (whose members are stuck at the bottom of the social ladder), he had to decide whether popularity was more important to him than his love for singing.
When his girlfriend became pregnant and told him he was the father, he was willing to be a man about it but found out that it was actually Puck, his closest friend, who got Quinn pregnant. Finn sort of dated Rachel Berry for a while but stopped, and soon someone else was also vying for Rachel’s attention.
Finn’s widowed mom is dating Kurt Hummel’s dad, Burt, who asked them to move in with him and Kurt. Finn knows about Kurt’s crush on him, and he got embarrassed and angry when his homophobic football teammates harassed him about Kurt. However, Finn realized that he shouldn’t let them tell him how he’s supposed to behave and he should stick up for himself and for Kurt.
