So I bought a photocopy of the signed Glee script at Newcastle Comic Con and it must be the very first draft of the pilot because I aww-ed so much when I saw that KURT is still RAJEESH.
I read it and am just reminded that Chris Colfer is such an amazing actor that they created a character for him rather than let him play someone who he wasn’t perfect for like how must he have felt when he found that out there must have been squeals.
This is so very surreal.
If this is real, the line about the clothing comes of so differently for Kurt’s Marc Jacobs than for Rajeesh’s Dick’s Sporting Goods. It seems a bit more like it’s making fun of Rajeesh, which is not how that scene plays out in actuality with Kurt at all. Fascinating.
I wonder how much of the pilot lines didn’t really change when the character did. It’s amazing how much Chris brings to Kurt and how much Chris has shaped Kurt.
I hope it’s real I paid £8 for it! There are a few lines that are slightly altered for all the characters but I was quite happy to see that they made new KURT lines instead of trying to stuff Chris into a RAJEESH shaped hole! What I bought as a cheap ‘the only Glee thing at the con so I have to buy it’ piece turns out to be a bit of a testament to Ryan Murphy and Chris Colfer!
Considering that Kurt was a last minute addition, although I love the other characters, I’d pay the show much less attention without him there, Glee really struck gold with Chris.
Thanks for elaborating and for sharing! It’s really interesting to get to see this and see what changed.
I 100% agree that they struck gold with Chris.
Very interesting. I love seeing these bits of history in the form of old scripts. And yes, I find it fascinating to think about how much Chris helped shape that character and how amazing that must have felt for him to not only get the part but to have the part made for him. Amazing.

This year, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Oscars. While every girl I knew squealed and asked what I was wearing I was riddled with anxiety. The day before the Oscars I had a fitting with Dior where I got to try on some beautiful dresses. I was between two dresses: the Carrie Bradshaw all-you-can-eat dress and the Angelina Jolie sexy leg kimono. I really wasn’t sure if I would ever get back to the Oscars so I let my inner Carrie Bradshaw take over and went with the dress with eight pounds of tullle. The fact that I was going to the show was no longer an idea but becoming a reality and like a 13-year-old girl at her birthday party, I had a complete meltdown. Somehow the night before the Oscars I managed to get into an argument with my best friend, my mom and my boyfriend.
I feel like this should be required reading for anyone who is a fan of any actor ever and/or has aspirations to work in Hollywood in any capacity. Because nothing I didn’t know (other than how Brad Pitt smells), but holy shit, getting it all in one place like this.
I saw this the other day and was waiting for it to show up on Tumblr so I could reblog it.
