max adler gets new pilot gig

After his powerful performance in such a moving episode, we're not surprised that he's getting more work!

In the Glee winter finale, Max Adler played student Dave Karofsky, who attempted to take his own life after being humiliated and bullied by his classmates for being homosexual.

We were pleased to see that the show inspired RECORD TRAFFIC for The Trevor Project, and now we're happy to hear that the actor who took on that intense role has landed a new job!

Adler has just secured a role in The Shield creator Shawn Ryan's new ABC pilot Last Resort, which has been described as follows:

"The project…tells the story of a renegade submarine crew who go on the run after defying an order to fire nuclear missiles. The team, lead by Capt. Marcus Chaplin (Men of a Certain Age's Andre Braugher), find refuge at a NATO base where they declare themselves as an independent nuclear station."

No word yet on what role Adler will play, but we'll definitely be going into this one optimistically! He's SUCH a talented actor!

What do U think? Will U check out Last Resort when it premieres???

    I will definitely watch the pilot, but not because of Max. I'm watching it because Scott Speedman is BACK ON TV!!! Max is a bonus.

    Max was so great, I'm happy for him, but… I would like to see Karofsky again!

    I love Max Adler. The plot seems very promising and unique. Max is a great actor and very handsome. I hope he keeps his role on Glee but so happy and proud that he is getting other opportunities.
