TCA Press Tour exclusive video: 'Glee's' Chris Colfer takes us for a high flying spin

August 3, 2010 |  3:20 pm

There's a million and one reasons for Chris Colfer to celebrate these days. The 20-year-old has become a pop culture phenom as Kurt on Fox's hit "Glee," and even snagged an Emmy nomination for his role (one of 19 the show scooped up in case you're counting).

After show creator Ryan Murphy spilled the beans earlier in the day on a few things to expect for season two (catch our favorite bits here), we caught up with Colfer at the Fox party which was held at the Santa Monica Pier.

While network stars mingled with reporters and played carnival games, Colfer had his eyes set on the rides like any twentysomething would. The main target? The Gyro Loop. The ride, which is considered a game because the passengers operate the movement with a joystick, is a two-seater apparatus capable of 360-degree turns and falls going frontward and backward. Colfer said he'd ride if we did, and you don't turn down the chance to hang out with Colfer. 

He only had one request. If he puked, the cameras had to fade to black. Thankfully we both held in our dinner. Watch us freefall – and scream for our lives below.
