What will supporting actor in a comedy nominee Chris Colfer (Glee) wear to the Emmys as a first timer? "If it was Kurt going, he'd probably wear something flashy and exotic—maybe a leopard print," Colfer tells TV Guide Magazine. "But I'm going to go as simple as possible." As one of three actors in his category who play gay characters, Colfer says he is "thrilled for all the kids who have written to me. It's going to mean the world to them." And now that he has his Emmy nomination, he's ready to meet his character Kurt's new boyfriend. "I did have a couple people from my home town who said, 'Submit me for the part—I'll make out with you. As if it was a chore."
