Commercial Writer & Director
|Family & Friends|
|Portrayer:||John Ross Bowie|
Dennis Halberstadt is the school picture photographer. He only appears in Mattress, the twelfth episode of Season One. He is portrayed by actor John Ross Bowie.
He only appears in Mattress alongside Randy Cusperberg, the manager at Mattress Land. He takes the school pictures at McKinley, including the yearbook photos for the New Directions, the staff, and the students. When he mentions to Rachel that they're going to do a commercial, she starts crying and explains to him that she can do that anytime a day. Whether he's convinced that she's a good actress or that he gets twelve free actors, he lets the New Directions do the commercial. He attempts to enforce his script at a commercial. Unfortunately, his script doesn't make it through when Rachel tells Cusperberg that they're a glee club and should therefore sing. The New Directions members offer to sing Jump instead of following Halberstadt's script. He unhappily watches the performance.
Dennis works for Mattress Land as their director and writer for their commercials. His brother-in-law owns Matress Land, a retail store for mattresses. Dennis takes school pictures just for the money. He is pretty conceited and thinks his work is pure genius.
- In The Glee Project first season music video for "Firework", Bowie appears as a yearbook photographer again, presumably Dennis.
