Chris Colfer on Glee's Big Role-Swapping Episode: 'I Didn't Want to Disrespect Anybody'Sunday, April 22, 2012
Glee is all about taking a walk in someone else’s shoes, but as the cast geared up for its big May 15 “body-swapping” episode, Chris Colfer struggled to perfect his new role.
“I really thought I had the hardest one because they were really hard to nail — they’re not over the top by any means,” Colfer told TVLine at the premiere of his new film Struck by Lightning, which he penned and starred in. “But it was also nerve wracking because I didn’t want to disrespect anybody!”
Although Colfer wouldn’t confirm which member of New Directions he was tasked with playing, he did suggest that those leaked photos showing Cory Monteith channeling Kurt were a big clue. (Another pretty significant clue can be found in the link accompanying this story.)
“It’s kind of like a switch in your mind,” he said of getting into Finn’s his new alter ego’s mindset. “You see yourself in a different mirror, and then you go for it!”
As TVLine first reported on Friday, NDs’ bizarro reality — which will air as part of a special two-hour event on May 15 — takes shape when Tina suffers a mild head injury while rehearsing for Nationals.
