In "Glee," Colfer plays a fashionable gay countertenor (Kurt Hummel) who is constantly bullied at school, both for being gay and being part of the very unpopular Glee Club. The show has attracted a wide array of guest cameos, from Britney Spears to Gwyneth Paltrow.

The character of Kurt was in fact created for Colfer. The writers told him that he looked like one of the Von Trapp kids, and Chris told them he actually just starred in "The Sound of Music," playing Kurt Von Trapp. They were so impressed that they actually scrapped a different character so that they could write Colfer in to the show.
