In the coming of age film directed by Brian Donnelly (Saved!), Colfer plays teenaged Carson Phillips, who has a less than idyllic life with an absent father (Dermot Mulroney), a mother (Allison Janney) who likes to spend her days drinking and popping pills, and a thankless job running the school newspaper that only he cares about. The film also stars Rebel Wilson, Christina Hendricks, Allie Grant, Sarah Hyland and acting legend Polly Bergen.
AfterElton sat down with Colfer at the film’s press junket day in Beverly Hills this past weekend to talk about the origins of the film as well as what the future holds on Glee for the still-broken-up Kurt and Blaine (Darren Criss).
