'Glee' Star Jayma Mays Is So 'Not Cool' (VIDEO)

'Glee' Star Jayma Mays Is So 'Not Cool'The musical drama 'Glee' is pretty hip right now. But does that coolness transfer over to one of the show's stars?

On 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Craig Ferguson talked with Jayma Mays -- who plays the OCD-afflicted guidance counselor on 'Glee.' While asking Jayma about her odd first name, Craig learned that Jayma's parents were wannabe hippies who simply made the name up. The hippie thing was strike one against Ms. Mays (the host isn't a fan of them). "Not cool," he said.

Craig gave Jayma another chance to show she was "cool." He placed a dollar bill on his desk and told the actress not to steal it. Unfortunately, Jayma failed this test as well.

Next, Ferguson learned that Jayma auditioned for 'Glee' by singing a song from 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show.' Since cultural opinion is divided as to whether 'Rocky Horror' is hip, or the geekiest thing of all time, this didn't resolve the debate either.

To her credit, the actress never claimed to be cool. In fact, she went in the opposite direction, denying any cool-ousity whatsoever. Still, even if Jayma didn't win the "cool" seal of approval, she at least made some money. Craig ended up giving her the dollar bill, much to Jayma's delight. "I'm rich!" she said.
