Chris Colfer says Tuesday's episode of
the Fox musical-comedy Glee could be leading up to a gay kiss,
The 20-year-old actor who plays gay
McKinley High student Kurt Hummel on the show will be joined Tuesday
by another gay student, Blaine, from a rival glee club named the
Dalton Academy Warblers. Blaine is played by Darren Criss, who
appeared in last year's short-lived ABC drama Eastwick.
Colfer offered a definite maybe on the
question of whether Kurt and Blaine will share a kiss on the episode,
which is suggestively titled Never Been Kissed.
He also told the all-things-tv weekly
that there is both excitement and secrecy surrounding the episode.
“It's so big that we had a full
meeting about it that we can't say anything,” he said. “That's
never happened before. I will say it's about Kurt.”
The title, Colfer adds, “leads you to
believe [that the pair will kiss] … but maybe something else
happens that's even bigger. Don't let the title lead you the wrong
way. The title of the episode has nothing to do with Kurt.”
Over the weekend, Jane
Lynch, who plays the role of sharp-tongued coach Sue Sylvester,
praised the show's gay-inclusiveness.
