Chris Colfer's post–McKinley High career seems even brighter than his Glee character Kurt's: He wrote and starred in one movie that's already in the can, he's got another set to shoot in a few months, and he's also written a Disney channel pilot and a children's book. You'll get a look at the first of his many labors today, as E!'s got an early trailer for his movie Struck by Lightning, where Colfer wrote himself a role as an overachiever who blackmails his classmates into contributing to his literary journal. The movie doesn't have a distributor or release date yet (and hopefully, when a studio does come aboard, they can put out a color-corrected trailer with some snappier edits and better fonts), but it's stuffed full of all those people you like, including Rebel Wilson, Allison Janney, Christina Hendricks, Sarah Hyland, and Ashley Rickards.
