Glee's Chris Colfer is a very busy man.

He stars on the hit Fox musical, is releasing a children's book in May, and makes his screenwriting — and leading man — debut later this year in the dark high school comedy Struck By Lightning. In the film, Colfer plays Carson Phillips, a high school student who blackmails his peers into contributing to his campus literary magazine and then gets — yup — struck by lightning.
