Struck by Lightning
Chris Colfer and Brian Dannelly

Apple Store – 401 West 14th Street, New York
Join Golden Globe winner Chris Colfer (Kurt on Glee) and director Brian Dannelly for a discussion of their new coming-of-age comedy, Struck by Lightning. Starring and produced by Colfer, this film tells the story of Carson Phillips (Colfer) who (after being struck and killed by lightning) explains how he blackmailed his classmates into contributing to his literary magazine.
Chris will be on Chelsea Lately on E! this Thursday (the 12th).
First Chris Colfer created some original artwork to raise money for animals. Now, the actor has graduated to adopting. Colfer went down to the West Valley Animal Shelter and took home an 8 year old 20 pound cat named Brian.
We often read about celebrities adopting puppies and kittens. Don’t get us wrong. We love any adoptions, but older animals have the hardest time finding a forever home. That’s why we’re so excited that Colfer is publicizing his new companion on twitter.
Colfer wrote, “I adopted a cat today from the West Valley Animal Shelter! His name is Brian, he’s 8 years-old and 20 pounds!” The “Glee” star continued, “It was heartbreaking to see so many sweet animals needing homes. Please think about rescuing!”
Speak to any shelter employee and they’ll tell you that everyone wants a young dog or cat. Senior critters often get ignored. But, there are many advantages to bringing home an older animal. Most of the time they have already spent a large majority of their lives living in a house which means they are probably potty trained and not so likely to eat your shoes.
