" Sure, I’ve heard the smack talking about my favorite Gleek. People say he wouldn’t have been so “lucky” if he wasn’t playing TV’s token gay teen. Well, let me tell you something. Untalented people don’t sing, act, and land book deals. Chris Colfer’s the real deal, people.
Sure, tons of D-list “celebrities” have had their turn at putting pen to paper. The difference between Colfer and these “stars,” though, is that Colfer isn’t simply counting on a well-paid ghost writer to peddle his own brand of celebrity gossip like most of these wannabes. He’s doing the writing himself. The star also recently wrote a Disney Channel pilot based on the children’s book The Little Leftover Witch as well as an independent feature film, which he plans to star in, called Struck by Lightning.
The man has found something to be passionate about and it’s something that he’s clearly GOOD at besides his acting and singing, which once again showcases his unmistakable talent. To all those who say he’s just getting credit for the stereotypes he breaks on TV, clearly you’ve got another thing coming. “
