Chris Colfer on the Whirlwind World of 'Glee'

Chris Colfer as Kurt in 'Glee'If there is any character amongst the kids on 'Glee' that's poised for a breakout, it's Kurt Hummel, mainly because of the confident acting of Chris Colfer.

A self-professed theater nerd, the 19-year-old Colfer has been having a ball playing Kurt; but along with all the fabulousness, he's also been doing a good job of making Kurt a multi-dimensional character in his limited screen time.

Colfer is featured in tonight's episode, 'Home,' where Kurt schemes to get closer to Finn by pairing up his single father Burt (played by Mike O'Malley) and Finn's mother. The results backfire a bit, pointing out yet again the difficulties Kurt has of being the gay, musical-theater-loving son of a guy who's more comfortable talking about Tim Tebow than Stephen Sondheim.

Colfer sat down with me last week to talk about the whirlwind that's been 'Glee's' first year, going to visit Oprah and the White House, if he's afraid of a backlash, and the weirdest place he's seen the paparazzi.

Here's the Defying Gravity video from last night's Glee

As Allison mentioned in her review of last night's Glee, it was an awesome episode. The show featured some great songs, some great lines, and a few surprises about some of the students and faculty. If you haven't watched it yet, I won't give away too much.

My favorite song was "Defying Gravity," the ballad from Wicked, sung in a "diva off" by Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer), with each performance inter-cut with the other. They both have fantastic voices, and I'm in awe of Colfer's spot-on tone and intonation. Just gorgeous! But I have to agree with Allison that perhaps Rachel has the more Broadway-type voice that jumps off the stage and grabs you.

I don't know, though. It's a tough call as to which has the bigger diva voice. What do you think? If you were a Broadway casting director, who would you choose to sing this song -- Kurt or Rachel?



(Thanks to Rickey.org for posting the video.)

Like the Beyonce song in last night's Glee? Me, too!

Glee football players doing choreography to Beyonce's I'm still digging Glee, and last night's episode was another winner. My favorite scene was the one where the football players did the choreographed number to Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)" in the middle of the football field.

Not only was it just a fun dance number, but it broke down several stereotypes all in one shot. Gay guy Kurt gets to be a football hero, the team goes against the grain and risks embarrassment to win the game, and Kurt's dad is proud of him. Of course, the scene later where Kurt told his dad he's gay, and his dad said it's ok, he knew all along -- well, that was special for a lot of other reasons. So far, Kurt is my favorite Glee character, and Glee is shaping up to be my favorite new show this fall.

After the jump, watch the video of the football team, as well as the opening video of Kurt and the girls doing the same number. And they all look like they're having a blast!

Glee: Preggers

Fox_Glee_Kurt_Hummel(S01E04) Lies, lies and damn lies. There are plenty of them on Glee in between the musical numbers, but in a truly fine episode like this one, at least one major truth emerges and that's what you take away from the show. Still, it's that darn song I'm humming and one more reason Glee keeps me coming back.

By the way, before we go on, how great is it that Glee has been renewed for a full season? Way to go, Fox! Yes, maybe it was a given that this show would be given a chance, but there are no sure things, and I think the network deserves a thumbs up when they take a chance. Anyway, more on tonight's show and all the plot developments after the jump.
