Fierce Friday: Nolan Gerard Funk for Da Man Magazine (April 2014 issue)

TIME TO FUNK. Hollywood’s in-demand actor Nolan Gerard Funk gushes about his Versace campaign shoot, a lesson from the erotic-thriller “The Canyons” and his darkest film yet

Nolan Funk shows off his masculinity with his buff guns for a feature in Da Man magazine’s April/May 2014 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 27-year-old Canadian actor had to share with the mag:

On fashion: “For me, fashion is character. It expresses different sides of being a man. I go from under the radar ‘don’t notice me’ to ‘F you rebel yell.’ Then if I want to be classic, I go for a suit. I think a suit shows respect.”

On playing Hunter Clarington on Glee: “Glee was sort of a “meant-to-be” type of thing. I was actually supposed to fly out to Canada, but I delayed my flight. I received a last-minute call—a day before, I think—to come in for Glee. Robert Ulrich and Alex Newman, the casting directors, had been trying to get me on the show for a while but there wasn’t a role that was the right fit. Finally, when I came in, Robert took the time to really work on the material. I sang ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ and ‘Rebel Yell.’”

On taking a musical path in the future: “I love music and I’ve missed making music in my life. So, hopefully the right acting or music opportunity will arise. I think there is this fear we have as all actors have, that if you put your music out there, it’s hard to be believable in your roles because people will know you too well as one thing. This is honestly the main reason why I’ve never dropped a record. But we live in a world where all the rules are changing, so you never know what I might decide to do.”
