Chris Colfer + Cory Monteith to Swap Roles on ‘Glee’

Get ready, Gleeks. Next month, two New Directions members will be switching bodies. How do we know? Chris Colfer confirmed the news himself.

The May 15 episode of ‘Glee‘ will show Kurt Hummel taking over the mind of a fellow glee club member, and though he doesn’t explicitly reveal which one, he says recently leaked photos may offer a clue. One of them shows Cory Monteith channeling his fashion-loving stepbrother.

According to TV Line, Colfer said the body-swap experience was”nerve wracking because I didn’t want to disrespect anybody!” He continued, “I really thought I had the hardest one because they were really hard to nail — they’re not over the top by any means.”

The 21-year-old also revealed his methodology in playing the part. “It’s kind of like a switch in your mind,” he said. “You see yourself in a different mirror, and then you go for it!”

The role-swap is part of a super-sized 2-hour ‘Glee’-vent, which focuses on New Directions as they get ready for Nationals. Tina suffers a head injury during rehearsals, which leads to the body-switching experience. Of course, the group will get to try their hand again at the annual competition, this time with a special panel of judges — Lindsay Lohan, Perez Hilton and Rex Lee.
