We know, we know. It’s hard to believe the ‘Glee’ cast was ever anything more than a bunch of singing, dancing, cavity-inducing kids. Or in Sue Sylvester’s case, a cringe- and quote-worthy tyrant.

Which got us thinking — how similar are the actors to their ‘Glee’-ful alter-egos?

We did some digging, and rated the best pre-‘Glee’ careers against their characters. See how the stars match up after the jump.
