Rachel Berry may be the Glee character known for her outsized dreams of superstardom, but it’s Kurt Hummel who’s taking Hollywood by storm at the moment. Or Chris Colfer, the actor who plays him, is, at any rate. Not content with simply earning a Golden Globe, two Emmy nominations, and a spot on the Time 100 for his role on the hit Fox series, Colfer has spent his time away from McKinley High penning feature screenplays, selling a Disney pilot, and landing a book deal — all by the age of 21.
The first of those scripts, Struck By Lightning, shot this past summer with Brian Dannelly (Saved!) at the helm, and we have an early trailer now. Colfer stars as an ambitious high school senior who blackmails his peers into contributing to his literary magazine before he is, you guessed it, struck by lightning and killed. The dark comedy also boasts some other notable stars, including Christina Hendricks, Allison Janney, Sarah Hyland, Angela Kinsey, Dermot Mulroney, and Rebel Wilson. Watch the trailer after the jump.
