Besides standing out as Kurt Hummel on the hit musical comedy, Colfer recently wrote and starred in the high school dramedy Struck By Lightning, developed a Disney Channel TV show that's ready for production, signed on to co-star alongside George Clooney, John C. Reilly and Jane Lynch in a staged reading of the marriage equality play 8 and is apparently penning a children's book. The man keeps busy.
The first trailer for Struck By Lightning as hit the web courtesy of E! Online and, while the movie looks like your standard, coming-of-age indie flick, Colfer appears to be at the top of his game. The jokes are sharp, the tone light and most importantly, he's not simply playing Kurt all over again. The movie co-stars Christina Hendricks, Dermot Mulroney, Allison Janney and Rebel Wilson, and should hit theaters sometime this year.
