Dear unosparethe and all other butt-hurt jealous little idiots
Re This pathetic post and your overall ignorant, pathetic, hateful attitude in general.
In an industry where there is very little work and a great many actors competing for every little role, industry experts and professionals all recommend actors creating their own work.
The reasons are, that it not only gives actors an outlet to express themselves and their talents, but it also creates a lot of work for others within the industry.
You sneering at Chris Colfer for actually using his immense talents to try to create work, not just for himself, but also for many others, not just his fellow actors, but for crew, directors, producers, etc, just highlights your own ignorance and your own jealousies and your very obvious desire to simply pull someone down for doing something that is actually very inspirational.
Do you say the same thing when your precious Darren (yes, I know who you are, even though you are trying to hide like a cowardly worm behind a blog you created to post your hate, but protect yourself and your main blog from any backlash) talks about creating his own songs for his own album which HE will sing lead vocals on and be front and center of any performance of his songs, of his concert tours, of any promotion of his albums? No,you don’t, yet it is exactly the same thing that you are attacking Chris for. Darren will be using his creative talents to create work for himself, yet Darren will be suffering from a lot less discrimination within the industry than Chris does.
There is no difference between someone who expresses themselves and their talents in song as there is for someone who expresses themselves and their talents through writing and performing. Singers have been giving themselves lead vocal and writing songs to show off themselves and their own talents for centuries. An Actor writing roles for themselves and creating their own work is simply doing the same thing.
Chris Colfer is paving the way for others in the industry. He is showing others, especially people of minority groups like fellow up-and-coming LGBT actors who, like Chris himself, are constantly coming up against bigotry and discrimination within the entertainment industry, that this can be fought against, that if you are being excluded from work and effectively being punished for just being who you are, then screw them, create your own work and screw the bigots, the homophobes, the racists, the sexists, etc. Make your own work. Pave your own way!!!
Chris Colfer, having come out as Gay at a very young age, is constantly going to have to fight for his place in Hollywood. He is constantly going to be discriminated against. He is going to have to work a hundred times harder than another actor who is straight, or who hides behind the straight label.
The fact that he is actually using his talents to not only create work and roles for himself, but also for others, is inspirational and it is forwarding movement towards equality for all.
Chris has written many projects that are in the works, and in some of those projects, he will/has cast himself as the lead, but in others he has already stated that he has only got small supporting roles, however, even if Chris cast himself as the lead in every project he creates, it is his right as HE created the work. HE put all his hard work and talents into creating that work that will also provide a lot of work for a great many others. His doing it is helping to pave the way for other minorities to create work for themselves in an industry where they are often overlooked and excluded because they don’t conform to the ‘ideal’.. Chris is saying OK, if you don’t get offered the roles because you don’t ‘FIT’, because you are not what Hollywood deems to be the ‘right’ sort of Leading Man/Woman, then go out and create your own Leading Man/Woman Roles. Change the attitudes. Fight the stereotypes, show the world that you do not have to conform to specific standards in order to be successful, and that you refuse to be reduced to just being what the industry tries to label you as being.
As for your attacks on Chris’ personal appearance, again that just shows how ignorant you are, but also just how disgusting a person you are.
Chris Colfer is not only extremely talented but he works damned hard and he has EARNED his successes and has fought hard for each and every one, and every success he has is a success not only for himself, as a Gay Man fighting his ‘corner’ in Entertainment and Arts industry, but for all minority groups who experience discrimination in Hollywood and in the ARTS as a whole. He SHOWS others how to do it, he doesn’t just talk the talk, he also fucking walks the walk and he is a wonderful role model for all those fighting their own battles against the bigoted, narrow-minded, homophobic, racist, sexist, transphobic, etc idiots who ‘run’ things within the entertainment industry. and you trying to tear down and reduce his efforts just exposes you as a butt-hurt jealous, ignorant, not very intelligent, bigoted little shit.
Chris is an absolutely amazing individual who constantly fights against the stereotypes and the labels and the discrimination, and constantly pushes the boundaries. He is very much a leader in the fight for equality, and is being recognised more and more for doing that.
