Kevin Mchale opens up about Artie's love interest on the upcoming season of "Glee."

Fans have much to look forward to on "Glee" season 4. We already know that Rachel (Lea Michele) will have a new love interest in the form of NYADA junior Brody (Dean Geyer). We also know that Sam (Chord Overstreet) will have a new girlfriend.

Now, Kevin McHale is talking about possible love interests for his character Artie. Where's the love for Artie this season? Kevin tells Wetpaint, "I don't know! I'm hoping they really put it in there. Whoa. No pun intended. Inappropriate. Sorry. I think he may get some lovin' this season."

Artie's Possible Love Interests

Who would Artie like to see as a love interest? Kevin answers, "I will take anybody. We work with some beautiful women on the show. Any of them are fine with me. I feel like last season the whole Sugar (Vanessa Langies) and Artie thing was very unresolved, and Tina's (Jenna Ushkowitz) single, so there are places to go."

What about the new girl Kitty (Becca Tobin)? Kevin answers, "You may see a little…Artie may be into that at first. You may see some of that. You know, Artie likes a strong woman, and she is very strong and outspoken and I think he likes that."

We're hoping that Artie has some positive experiences in the love department. He's had some tough breaks these past few seasons. His first girlfriend Tina dumped him for Mike Chang (Harry Shum Jr.). His next girlfriend Brittany (Heather Morris) cheated on him with Santana (Naya Rivera). And Sugar chose Rory (Damian McGinty) over Artie.

First Loves

We're also thinking that Tina may be an ideal endgame match for Artie. "Glee" seems to have a soft spot for first loves like Blaine (Darren Criss) and Kurt (Chris Colfer), Finn (Cory Monteith) and Rachel, and Quinn (Dianna Agron) and Puck (Mark Salling).

Out of all his experiences, Artie experienced the most growth during his relationship with Tina. She was always rooting for him to be able to walk again, and she encouraged him to pursue his dream of becoming a dancer. He also gave her the confidence to come out her shell and to stop faking her stutter.

We'd like to see Artie and Tina together eventually, but in the meantime, it might be fun for them to explore other possibilities.

Who do you think would be an ideal match for Artie?
