When we last checked in with “Glee” star Chris Colfer in April, he was just as excited as we were to find out that his lovable character Kurt Hummel would be getting a boyfriend. Since then, we have done some more investigating into this romantic tale.
The bad news? We won’t see Kurt’s beau until season 2. The good news? The actor hasn’t even been cast yet, which means the options are endless! When Chris stopped by the MTV News offices yesterday, we made sure to get his intel on his boyfriend-to-be. “I’ll have nothing to do with that casting process,” he clarified with a laugh. “That’s way too much for me, I couldn’t!”
Still, we just knew Chris had some vision in his mind of what kind of guy he hopes to see Kurt lock hands with while sashaying down the halls of McKinley High. “I think he should be the exact opposite of Kurt,” he mused. “I know they are going to be like a power couple. I’ve heard rumors that they are going to be homecoming kings. But I think someone definitely different from him.”
Kurt, Chris continues, “can be kind of flamboyant and he’s very superior and into fashion. I think everyone’s used to that. We probably should cast someone different.” Immediately we were, of course, thinking: hmm that sounds like Kurt’s current crush, Finn (Cory Monteith). You can’t get much more different than that, right? “That is his type, apparently,” the actor agreed. “So maybe like a Finn, like a jock type. That would be really fun if he looked exactly like Finn!”
What actors do you see stepping into the shoes of Kurt’s boyfriend? Are you excited to see Kurt have his own love interest? Who else on the show should also get romance added to their plots?
