Glee’ Chris Colfer Branches Out In Struck By Lightning Trailer
Not prolonged after Glee became a sensation, a show’s out and unapproachable dermatitis star Chris Colfer began scoring growth deals to spin his hum and glamour into new projects. It was small some-more than a year ago that we initial listened of Colfer’s Struck By Lightning, a high school-set comedy he wrote to star in. At a time we pondered if this would be adequate of a depart from Glee to arrangement Colfer’s range, though a film’s initial trailer—courtesy of E!–immediately assuages that concern. Colfer clearly didn’t wish his movie’s protagonist to be Kurt 2.0. Though he’s once again expel as an outcast, there’s no singing, dancing or decorated knitwear being boasted in Struck By Lightning. Thankfully, a disagreeable clarity of amusement he’s displayed on Glee is intact. The E! actor is one of those repulsive autoplayer deals, so we’ll have to rest on a YouTube hide for now.
Struck By Lightning centers on Carson Phillips (Colfer), a teen with some critical journalistic aspirations. To get his college focus to mount out, this amicable renegade runs for category president—I mean, he starts a literary repository by blackmailing his classmates to contribute. Noteworthy expel members embody Allison Janney as his mother, The Office‘s Angela Kinsey as an overeager superintendence counselor, Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland as a slut-shamed bitchy cheerleader, and Bridesmaids‘s Rebel Wilson as his ungainly and voyeuristic Girl Friday.
Sure, there are some drawbacks in this trailer. The clichéd explanation on a consent genius of high school, a steady use of a word “fornicate,” a surplus rendering of a plot, and overindulgent voiceover do make for an underwhelming introduction. However, I’m anticipating executive Brian Dannelly has breathed a same kind of satirical wit and satirical comedy into Struck By Lightning that he did to a 2004 teen comedy Saved! If so, Colfer’s film entrance could yield him a career trail over Kurt’s comparison year.
