Sarah Hyland Dishes on Playing the Head Cheerleader in Chris Colfer’s Movie
Excellent news for all fans of Glee and Modern Family (and really, who isn’t at this point?): Sarah Hyland (Haley Dunphy) has joined the cast of Chris Colfer’s (Kurt Hummel on Glee) first film: Struck by Lightning, which he also wrote and directed.
"I play Claire, the head cheerleader," Sarah told E!. "She does not like Chris' character very much...But I'm playing a cheerleader. What else are cheerleaders? They're mean!"
It sounds like Sarah’s character in the movie isn’t all that different from her character on Modern Family — a little bitchy, the “hot girl” in high school, and dismissive of the unpopular kids.
But we’re sure filming Chris’ movie is way more fun: Sarah’s boyfriend,, Matt Prokop, plays a stoner who will “roll a joint or two,” he says, in the film. We can’t wait!
Watch an all-new Modern Family on Wednesday, February 8 at 9pm ET/PT on ABC.
