Glee star Cory Monteith says he was so shocked at being cast in the hit musical series, that he initially thought the decision was made in error.
"When they picked me for the part, I thought they were mistaken," he told Entertainment Tonight for an interview that aired on Tuesday.
"I thought I was going to be swiftly recast and fired and deported!"
Corey, who plays football hunk Finn in the show, is rumoured to be dating country music sensation, Taylor Swift.
