Chris Colfer Admits He Jams Out to ‘Skyscraper,’ Talks Broadway Dreams
At the New Yorker Festival on Saturday night, Colfer revealed to Billboard his obsession with the track during a 90-minute discussion with New Yorker editrix Susan Morrison: “Don’t make fun of me,” he said, “I really love Demi Lovato’s new song, ‘Skyscraper.’ I get teased about that, because I play it in my trailer.”
It makes sense that Colfer would feel some camaraderie with Lovato, since both stars have taken vocal stances against bullying — a topic Colfer wasn’t afraid to tackle during the panel. He revealed that he was bullied so intensely during middle school that he was homeschooled for two years. No wonder his portrayal of frequent target Kurt Hummel on ‘Glee’ is so sensitive, given that Colfer has a very real body of experience to back it up.
With Colfer’s ‘Glee’ costar Darren Criss, set to replace Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe in the Broadway revival of ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,’ Colfer was quick to address the fans who have urged him to take the stage. Turns out audiences may not be seeing Colfer on Broadway anytime soon: When pressed about his ideal Broadway roles, Colfer said, “I haven’t written them yet.” Zing!
