Watch Glee’s Max Adler Play Gay in Saugatuck Cures

Max Adler

He poses as an ex-gay minister in order to raise the money by 'converting' homosexuals into heterosexuals in this family-friendly comedy

As Adler explained to Out in an interview earlier this year, filming Saugatuck Cures was such an "incredible experience" for him.

"It is a brilliant script written by Jay Paul Deratany dealing with family values and acceptance and tolerance as well as the hot topic of strong religious beliefs versus homosexuality and how that affects this family's dynamics. However, it deals with all of these buzzwords and sensitive issues through comedy, so while you are understanding and receiving the hard hitting messages, you are laughing along the way so it makes the subjects more palatable and easier to swallow through comedy as opposed to a heavy drama which can tend to make everything a little bit more polarizing.

"The character I play, Drew Callaghan, and the character I play on Glee are two very different guys. Although they do indeed have their homosexuality in common, at the time I played Drew in Saugatuck Cures, Dave wasn't really out and hadn't really accepted or declared his homosexuality to his family and friends yet in Glee. So while I was able to explore the very difficult time that comes with being a closeted homosexual in high school with Dave, it was quite different with Drew because he was already out to all of his friends and his entire family and had accepted who he was long ago and in fact, was even frustrated at the lack of great dating options in his town as he was indeed searching for the right man!

Saugatuck Cureswill be released June 30 on DVD and VOD. Watch this new, exclusive trailer below:
