Chris Colfer is adding a new title to his repertoire: sitcom guest star. The Glee actor-singer-writer has signed on to appear in an episode of Hot in Cleveland, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The Glee actor-singer-writer has signed on to appear in an episode of Hot in Cleveland, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Colfer (whose only previous non-Glee TV gig was a 2011 role on Fox’s The Cleveland Show) will play Tony, the son of Wendie Malick’s fading actress Victoria Chase.
The TV Land comedy kicked off its fifth season last month with a special live episode. Colfer’s episode shoots next week.
Glee comes full circle with the March 25 installment, as the two-part 100th episode celebration concludes exactly where the pilot did: with the cast performing “Don’t Stop Believin’” on the McKinley High stage.
BuzzFeed was on the set as the cast prepared to shoot the bookend performance and asked Lea Michele (Rachel Berry), Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel), Amber Riley (Mercedes Jones), Kevin McHale (Artie Abrams), Harry Shum Jr. (Mike Chang), Chord Overstreet (Sam Evans), Darren Criss (Blaine Anderson), Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester), Alex Newell (Unique Adams), Melissa Benoist (Marley Rose), and Blake Jenner (Ryder Lynn) to look back at the first time they performed on the now iconic stage.
Just one day after TVLine broke the news that Chris Colfer will write a Season 6 episode of Glee, we caught up with the future scribe for some scoop on his highly anticipated creation — which will most definitely not involve twerking.
“I promise that it’s better than it sounds,” Colfer promised Tuesday night at Glee‘s 100th episode party in West Hollywood. ”I think we’re going to do something … with animals and the elderly. I kind of have this shot to do a really selfish episode, which if it was for me, I would probably have done a Miley Cyrus tribute episode. But I’m trying to do the best episode that I can, rather than do something selfish.”
The actor-writer is set to pen an episode of the Fox musical-dramedy to air later this season, TVLine has learned exclusively.
According to sources, the show’s producers (including series co-creator Ryan Murphy) presented Colfer with the opportunity to craft his very own hour of Glee, and the burgeoning auteur jumped at it.
Details on the content of the episode are TBD, but I hear Colfer has already met with the show’s writing staff to hash out some ideas.
Colfer is certainly well suited for the gig. In addition to writing the screenplay for the 2012 indie Struck By Lightning (which he also produced and starred in), the 23-year-old multi-hyphenate is the best-selling author behind the Land of Stories children’s book series.
