Refusing to reveal whom his character will channel in the Nationals-themed episode, the Kurt depicter gushes that filming the scene was nerve wracking because he 'didn't want to disrespect anybody.'
The New Directions members will indeed swap bodies with one another in the upcoming May 15 episode of "Glee". Confirming such twist, Chris Colfer admitted that filming the scene was "nerve wracking because I didn't want to disrespect anybody!"
The Kurt Hummel of the FOX musical series refused to spill whose shoes he will step into, but hinted that the clue could be gotten from recently leaked set photos, which see Cory Monteith's Finn channeling Kurt. "I really thought I had the hardest one because they were really hard to nail - they're not over the top by any means," he went on claiming about his part.
The 21-year-old openly gay actor further gushed on how it feels to get into his new alter ego's mindset. "It's kind of like a switch in your mind," he shared. "You see yourself in a different mirror, and then you go for it!"
The role-swapping plot is part of "Glee" special 2-hour event which will follow the New Directions who are gearing up for Nationals. The alternate reality pops out in the first hour as a result of Tina's head injury. The second hour will see the glee club kids taking the stage at the annual competition, with Lindsay Lohan, Perez Hilton and Rex Lee sitting on the judging panel.
In another news, Fox News' host Bill O'Reilly recently slammed "Glee" for its transgender teen storyline. "Here's the problem with a show like this, though, if you make the behavior of these people ... if children hear it, unsupervised children, okay who don't have parents watching their - they might go out and experiment with this stuff," he said on "The O'Reilly Factor" Thursday, April 19.
When guest Judge Jeanine Pirro asked, "Do you really think that this is the kind of thing that's contagious?" in response to O'Reilly's statement, the political commentator replied, "I don't know." Another guest, Gretchen Carlson, supported O'Reilly's opinion as saying, "I'm not saying this is suddenly going to turn somebody gay, but I totally agree with Bill that this causes kids to experiment."
GLAAD spokesperson Aaron McQuade has since reacted to the controversial statement. "The messages sent last night by Carlson and O'Reilly are extremely dangerous and completely divorced from reality," he stated. "The two clearly do not have the best interests of individual children at heart."
