Chris Colfer in ‘Struck by Lightning’ Trailer Will Make You ‘Gleek’ Out (VIDEO)

Chris Colfer in 'Struck by Lightning'What's better than watching 21-year-old Chris Colfer play the flamboyant role of Kurt on Glee? Well ... nothing. However, his leading role in the upcoming movie (which he wrote!) Struck by Lightning looks pretty darn epic. The movie follows Colfer's character Carson Phillips as he recalls blackmailing his fellow high school classmates into contributing to a literary magazine he was working on.

Believe me -- this looks hilarious! Colfer's Kurt-tastic charm is there in full force, and personally, I can't wait to see him work his magic on the big screen.

Plus, just wait until you see the star-studded cast! I'm talking big names like Mad Men's Christina Hendricks, Allison Janney, and Modern Family's Sarah Hyland.

This movie has sort of a Juno vibe, don't you agree? That could just be because Allison Janney is playing the mother figure again.

It'll be interesting to see how Colfer does outside of McKinley High. Considering this film puts his character right back into high school, I don't see there being a drastic difference between the two characters. When Chris steps out of high school roles and into something bigger, though, that's when I think we'll really see him shine. With the right project and his caliber of talent, I wouldn't be surprised if we see him up for an Academy Award within the next few years.

Are you looking forward to seeing Chris take on something new? What do you think of the trailer for Struck by Lightning?
