In a new interview, out actor Chris Colfer talks about his role in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.

The 25-year-old Colfer is best known for his portrayal of gay student Kurt Hummel on the Fox musical comedy Glee.

Last week, producers of the movie released a photo of Colfer flanked by the film's stars, Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley.

In the BBC sitcom, PR agent Edina Monsoon (played by Saunders) and magazine editor Patsy Stone (Lumley) desperately attempt to be hip by chasing bizarre fads. Edina's heavy drinking is eclipsed by Patsy's self-destructive behavior.

“As of right now, I believe I'm playing Jennifer Saunders' hairdresser/social media consultant,” Colfer told Larry King Now host Larry King.

“And I'm very excited about that, because Jennifer Saunders is one of my heroes. And I can't believe she wrote the part for me,” he said.

Elsewhere in the interview, Colfer said that an openly gay president was a possibility.
