Is Kurt Hummel always going to have ambitions about becoming a performer? Although this is mostly what we have seen him do on “Glee” over the past three seasons, it is possible that his recent rejection from NYADA may cause him to take a hard look at his future and question whether or not there is another field that could utilize his talents equally.
Speaking to TVLine in a new interview, Chris Colfer does very much hint at the possibility of a new career ambition for his character, though he does not go as far as to say what it could actually be:
“We’ll see if he still wants to be a performer … I don’t know if he’s hardened after that [NYADA] experience.”
There are rumors out there suggesting that Kurt could try and make a jump into the world of fashion, but there’s not anything close to proof to back this chatter up.
For those wondering more about the future of Kurt and Blaine, Colfer said that the two are still likely going to be together at the start of season 4 — but there’s always potential for anything to happen after that. If Kurt moves to New York, they are not going to be together all the time, and they will have to adjust accordingly. (Does this mean singing to each other via Skype?)
On a different note related to Colfer, his feature film debut “Struck By Lightning” is getting a rather creative distribution deal. Tribeca Film is set release the movie in theaters later this year, but it was also be made available on a variety of on-demand video platforms that allow it to be made available in tens of millions of homes at the same time it is on the big screen. This sort of release has had mixed results in the past, but what the studio may be hoping for here is that Colfer’s success with the TV medium will carry over.
