GLEE: Chris Colfer Talks Working with Sarah Jessica Parker and Getting to Do a Book Tour for ‘The Land of Stories.’ Plus, Photos From SJP’s Debut!

GLEE star Chris Colfer (Kurt) hasn’t slowed down one bit — during his most recent hiatus from the Fox series, Colfer released a book (“The Land of Stories”) and participated in a country-wide book tour to support it.
“It’s been crazy,” Colfer told me of going on the book tour. “It’s been more than I ever expected. It’s insane. It’s incredible.”
And while the GLEE fans are notoriously passionate about him (and his character), he said he was pleasantly surprised by how many people who showed up simply because they loved the book.
“That’s the thing: I thought they would be [coming because of GLEE],” he admitted. “But they all read the book…I’m on cloud nine.”
Making him equally excited? The opportunity to work upcoming GLEE guest star Sarah Jessica Parker.
“So excited,” Colfer gushed. “Everyone’s been asking if I’m excited to work with Carrie Bradshaw [whom Parker played in SEX AND THE CITY], and I’m like, ‘No, I’m excited to work with Sarah Sanderson from HOCUS POCUS!’ That was my movie growing up!”
And Colfer conceded he was “so surprised” by the season 3 twist that had his character getting rejected from NYADA (after seemingly nailing his audition), he was a little more flexible with whatever the future might bring for Kurt and Blaine.
“Whatever makes the girls on the internet happy, because the angry tweets I get sometimes scare the hell out of me,” he laughed. “Whatever makes [the fans] happy.”
