As bullied gay student Kurt Hummel, "Glee" star Chris Colfer knows that the high school years aren't easy. Now, he's bringing teen angst to the big screen in a new movie he wrote and will star in.
Variety reports that the 20-year-old actor will make his movie debut in the self-penned "Struck by Lightning," a coming-of-age comedy expected to be in the spirit of such John Hughes classics as "Pretty in Pink," "The Breakfast Club," and "Sixteen Candles."
The Emmy-nominated Colfer, whose harassed "Glee" character switched schools and is now pining for fellow Dalton Academy student Blaine, is expected to begin shooting "Struck by Lightning" when "Glee" goes on hiatus for the summer.
Variety adds that no other cast members have yet been announced for the flick. Which young actors would you like to see co-starring alongside Colfer?
