He's not: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_McHale_%28actor%29

Although i really like him as Artie I dont see why they couldnt choose a real wheelchair user for that role...

The wheelchair boy in Malcom in the Middle isnt either.

But wow, he sure became a very handsome young man! icon_redface.gif icon_wink.gif icon_redface.gif

Unlike his character "Artie" in the tv-series GLEE, the actor Kevin McHale does not use a wheelchair.
In fact, co-star Chris Colfer stated in 2010 that McHale is regarded as being the best dancer among the cast.

It's a common phenomen that movie-characters sitting in a wheelchair aren't portrayed by actors who do so in real life, too. That's because there aren't so many actors out there who really use a wheelchair. Plus if there is one, he doesn't neccessarily fit with the character or the rest of the cast.

Kind regards
