~ Glenn preying on young women.

Glenn Gulia is the main antagonist of the 1998 film The Wedding Singer and its musical adaptation.

He was portrayed by Matthew Glave.

Biography

Glenn works as an equity trader. He is Julia Sullivan's fiancée, and it's apparent from the beginning that he's wrong for her. He's inconsiderate, unloving, and cheats on her. In a private conversation, he admits his reasons for marrying Julia are that she would make a good trophy wife and that a woman like that ought to be on the arm of a powerful financier. When asked if he will regret that his days of extramarital sex will end now that he is entering monogamy, Glenn confides that he has no plans of stopping; his career allowing for extensive travel and figuring Julia will never find out.

Julia's unsure of marrying Glenn, namely due to parental pressure. Julia's parents strove to pay the bills and put food on the table in their early years, and they worry she's doomed to a fate of similar squalor with her struggling as a waitress. Glenn, they say, can provide her with a life they could only dream of. One of Julia's reasons is the disgust with her new name "Julia Gulia", and reflects on her nascent attraction to Robbie by calling herself "Mrs. Julia Hart". Due to a misunderstanding, Julia forgets about Robbie and elects to bury her regrets, now devoting herself to Glenn.

While Glenn and Julia are on the way to Las Vegas for their wedding, Robbie Hart, the main protagonist who is also in love with Julia, sings a heartfelt love song for her, while Billy Idol subdues Glenn in an airplane bathroom. Robbie and Julia are then happily married. What happened to Glenn after that is unknown, although the audience is given hints with his attitude and outlook to the future. Glenn is often shown telling Robbie how he has life figured out, and he figures that because the 1980s are so prosperous, the good times are here to stay.

Glenn seemed ready to marry Julia after she decides it best to marry him. However, on the flight to Nevada to get married, Robbie is on the same flight and manages to get himself into first class with help of a man he worshipped musically, Billy Idol. Robbie declares his feelings for Julia, then gets in a fight with Glenn. Glenn is knocked out when he spills the beans he is only interested in Julia for her looks. Robbie then goes on to marry Julia.

It was unknown what became of Glenn, but likely he ended up unemployed on account of the Wall Street Crash of 1987, also known as "Black Monday" (occurring two years after the events of the film), where many equity firms went bankrupt. Due to Glenn's own arrogance and failure to prepare for lean times, it's highly likely he was left without much money to survive on. He may have found another woman, or may have been left lonely as women like Julia were the ones to stand by their men in difficult economic situations, as opposed to "trophy wives" who turn tail once their husbands' savings dry up.
