Chris Colfer heads out of his hotel in New York City on Friday afternoon (January 11).
The 22-year-old actor stopped by Anderson Live to talk about his new movie, Struck By Lightning.
“I was tired of watching movies geared toward my age about the same types of kids going after the same pursuits of popularity; I saw enough of that in real life,” Chris wrote in a piece for EW about the flick. “What about the type of kid I was? The kind who was so driven by the things they wanted to accomplish that they saw high school more as a waiting room than a utopia. Where was the movie about that kid?”
He added, “I put the main character in the same environment I lived in (conservative small-town suburbia) and surrounded him with familiar personas and predicaments. However, I modeled him after the person I wanted to be, rather than who I was.”
