Chris on Sprout
I am legit really excited for Chris to be on sprout because I have a 2 year old little sister and Sprout is on TV like 90% of the time so I kinda know all the shows, songs, characters and plot lines. (What is my life?)
But as a PSA Chris will most likely not be on the show with little kids, just another adult host and a stuffed chicken puppet named Chica during the break between each show, which is called the Sunny Side Up show. 
Also if you plan on recording it, you’re going to want to record all the shows from like 9:30 to 10:00 because he’ll be there during a commercial or show break like I said. 
I hope that helped all of you who don’t have little kids of your own or siblings or whomever who watch Sprout. 
Also, there is a 40% chance Chris could sing because there is a lot of singing during the show, but I’m not sure what segment of the show will be playing when Chris is there.

I am the only reason they’ve not been made into films yet. I’ve been offered a lot of deals but I’m very, very, picky about it.

When I look at how some of the Harry Potter books were made into movies (the many errors and changes from the books that annoyed me), and also 'The Hobbit' (sorry Kim, I know you love Richard Armitage), I don't blame Chris for being picky about how the TLoS books will be filmed.

^ OT a bit, peter jackson said on the hobbit bts that he didn't know what he was doing when he made hobbit. basically he took over the project in the last minute and they were laying the tracks as the train rolled along. for someone who didn't know what he was doing i am pretty impressed. the hobbit is probably better left as a book. books allow you to build magic realms in your own imagination, and often it's the best kinds. once it's realized in movies, it looses its magical touch. i understand chris wants more control of hte movies or make sure that only the best writer/director handle the projects. if the first one is successful, it can be made into another money grabbing franchise, and big movie studios are all about franchise these days. i imagine there's not only movie talk but tv talk too. however tv has less budget, unless you are HBO, and hbo will never bother with children's topics because i think just about everything they made had to have gratuitous T&A in it. Smile

can i just say that a big part of me prefer that this is a book series only and not made into movies/tvs? it's quite magical as it is. many of us are a sick and tired of special effects in everything. i haven't been in the movie theater for almost a year. I just want to sit in front of my stair case and watch my cat taking never ending naps.

I would be happy if a producer actually read the books first then made the movies.

I am sure Chris would be happy if they did that as well.

I know I would. Smile

These books are his babies and he has a huge emotional attachment to them. I don't blame Chris for being very choosy about how they are filmed. He's got a very clear vision and better to forgo making films at this point than doing a film badly.

From a new interview.

I’d probably say hormones are not your fault. Don’t be upset by them. There were so many times as a kid when I was so down; I felt I was never meant for this world. But it wasn’t true. I’d say get out there and see the world. It’s much bigger than your high school.
— Chris Colfer, The Toronto Star in response to “What kind of advice would Colfer offer to the kids out there struggling to define themselves?”

http://www.thestar.com/entertainment/television/2015/11/21/actor-chris-colfer-is-defying-gravity-in-the-book-world-too.html





The angelic-voiced Chris Colfer may have broken through to TV stardom as Kurt Hummel on Glee when he sang “Defying Gravity,” but these days he’s smashing sales records in the publishing industry as well.
His series of four volumes of revisionist fairy tales, under the umbrella title The Land of Stories, has been No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list, while the first picture book inspired by the series, The Curvy Tree, debuted last month to strong sales. Fans of Colfer’s fabulous fables are waiting for the boxed set, Adventures From the Land of Stories, to hit the streets on Nov. 24.
It’s quite a lot for the 25-year-old from Clovis, Calif., to have on his plate, but on the phone from New York he seems just about the nicest young guy you’d ever want to chat with, lacking all of his alter-ego Kurt’s sometimes abrasive fashionista baggage.
“Thank you for recognizing that Kurt and I are two different people,” he says. “Don’t get me wrong, I loved playing him, but we’re not the same in so many ways. When I walked into my audition for Glee, I was a small-town kid wearing scruffy jeans and a shirt from Target.”
In fact, when Colfer auditioned for the show, he was originally brought in to try out for the role of Artie. But the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, sensed something in Colfer and created Kurt for him.

“That was fantastic, sure, but I had to do a lot of homework really quick. I used to keep watching The Devil Wears Prada on repeat to soak up all the gestures and mannerisms. I don’t think anybody ever guessed that I was channelling Meryl Streep’s judgmental looks as Kurt.”
Colfer made a big impression from the start when Glee hit the air in 2009, but it was the ninth episode that season, “Wheels,” that really did the trick. Colfer and Lea Michele’s character Rachel battled over who would sing “Defying Gravity” from the musicalWicked.
“That came from my own life,” says Colfer. “I always wanted to sing it in high school, but the teachers wouldn’t let me because they said it was a girl’s song. My grandmother finally let me sing it in the church where she was a reverend

“That song meant the world to me. Wicked was about someone who nobody paid attention to and who had a sister with special needs.”

Colfer’s voice gets husky as he explains the next part of his story.

“When I was a kid, my sister, who was five years younger, was diagnosed with epilepsy. Sometimes she would have 50 seizures in an hour. It was a very, very difficult period for the whole family. That’s when I started creating fairy tales in my head and writing them down. I just couldn’t write enough and my grandmother persuaded me to wait.

“She said, ‘Christopher, I think you should wait until you’ve done with elementary school before worrying about being a failed writer.’”
But when Colfer got to middle school he had other problems to deal with.
“That’s when the bullying started. My voice may have matured over the years, but it’s never changed. So there I was, a sensitive kid with an effeminate voice. I wasn’t feminine in any of my mannerisms, but I was growing up in a very, very conservative place, so that was enough.


“I’d get shoved into walls, pushed into lockers, my things would get vandalized. My parents finally had to take me out and home-school me for a while. It got a bit better in high school. I discovered musical theatre and could be with people like me. I produced a gender-reversed version of Sweeney Todd called Shirley Todd. I did it so that I could sing all the songs Angela Lansbury did.”
An agent had signed Colfer at 14 because of his amazing voice, “but I never got any work. I was always auditioning for the nerd trying to get laid or the jock with a heart of gold, and you can see why I didn’t get any of those parts.”

But then, two weeks into his first year at college, came the audition for Glee and the world shifted on its axis for Colfer and many other young people.
“I think having someone like Kurt on the show changed things for a lot of kids. There I was, a gay guy who wasn’t written to be a punching bag. Someone who had a soul behind the eyes. Someone who people were rooting for.

“I’m a little bitter that there was no one like that on TV when I was growing up. I was so terrified of being gay. I was so far in the closet that I was in the garage. That was the worst part of it.”
What kind of advice would Colfer offer to the kids out there struggling to define themselves?

“I’d probably say hormones are not your fault. Don’t be upset by them. There were so many times as a kid when I was so down; I felt I was never meant for this world. But it wasn’t true. I’d say get out there and see the world. It’s much bigger than your high school.”

And then he thinks of a line he wrote in The Curvy Tree that sums it all up.

“Being different may have been difficult, but it’s what saved me.”

Five fave influences

J.K. Rowling
“She was the author whose footsteps I first wanted to follow in. Just like her, I wanted to write a book that captivated book lovers.”

Gregory Maguire
“I was too young to read him at first, but I’ve come to love the depth he brings to fairy tales. Wicked is still the most amazing, especially for the depth he gave to everyone’s back stories.”

Whoopi Goldberg

“I admire her so much! If there was a musical of The Land of Stories, I’d want her to produce it.”

Kristin Chenoweth
“She was my first celebrity crush. There’s just this glow that comes off of her. She’s simply amazing.”

Robin Williams
“I was so sad when he died. I still can’t believe it. He was my hero when I was growing up.”

When I read about Chris being shoved into walls and lockers when he was at school shows how much Ryan took from Chris's life and is sick in a lot of ways.  :angry:

That is violence where he would have suffered cuts and bruises. :angry:

They obviously did not hit him or beat him up, but to have this happen to Kurt the same way is cruel.

Though maybe to Chris it wasn't, maybe it was in some ways therapy, that seeing fans and others pity Kurt when this happened when he himself would have had none except from his family.

There is a rumour going around that Chris's mum just died.

If you look at her profile pic on Facebook you will see people mentioning it.

I hope it isn't true and just a misunderstanding. This year is bad already.
