We still don’t know if Glee‘s Rachel (Lea Michele) will be officially Broadway-bound when Season 5 starts this fall. But while her career most definitely seems to be headed in the direction of musical theater, one of her fellow NYCers could be heading in a different direction.
Yep, somebody’s channeling their inner rock star and joining a band. And you know what else? It it might not be who you’d expect.
During a French interview for his movie, Struck By Lightning, Chris Colfer revealed that Kurt Hummel just might be focusing in on a different sort of musical career. Since everyone on Glee is still on summer break, few of the specifics about Season 5 have been hashed out quite yet.
So while Chris first gave the generic, “I don’t know. They never really tell us anything until the scripts come out” — he did offer this one specific tease as to what his character might be up to in NYC next year.
“I know Kurt might join a band, and I know that I’ve thrown some ideas at them, so we’ll see if any of my ideas get selected.”
Obviously, we’re dying to know more. We’re assuming that this band will be in NYC, because it’s highly unlikely that Kurt will drop out of NYADA, even if he and Blaine (Darren Criss) do end up getting engaged.
But what sort of band will Kurt be in? Personally, we’re hoping he goes for something unique: like grunge rock or country / western. Maybe a little bit both?
