Chris is #3 in the AfterElton Hottest 100! Also making the list are his Glee co-stars Darren Criss, Mark Salling, Chord Overstreet, Harry Shum, Matthew Morrison, Kevin McHale… actually, I think all the Glee boys made it! Also in the list are Glee guest stars Jonathan Groff and Neil Patrick Harris.
While many fans of Chris Colfer are no doubt disappointed the man who breathes life into Glee’s Kurt Hummel didn’t actually win this year’s Hot 100, they should still celebrate his phenomenal showing. After all, only two other men got more votes (one of whom Chris is very familiar with) and Colfer is having an extraordinary year.
Actually, the twenty-year-old actor might be having the most extraordinary year any out actor has ever had. In addition to being the breakout character on one of the most popular shows on television, Colfer scored a surprise Emmy nomination, was named to the 2011 Time 100, has graced numerous magazine covers (including EW’s cover story about bullying), and sold his first script.
Oh, and let’s not forget, AfterElton readers did vote Chris number one on our recent AfterElton.com Gay-List which ranked the most popular gay celebrities in the world. Face it, this is Chris Colfer’s world. We’re just living in it.
