All right. Whatever doubts I had about Chris Colfer and Max Adler’s on-screen/on-camera compatibilities (and, by extension, Kurt Hummel and Dave Karofsky’s potential as a better-looking, more smashing hot couple than Kurt and Blaine) just flew out of the window this morning and killed themselves on the pavement below that window, thanks to this picture from the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
What’s funny about this picture is that Max Adler looks to be the neater one between the two. Chris Colfer looks more casual and laid back (and his tie looked a bit untidy) and less like the beautiful pale white ghost that he was at the Golden Globes. They’re both really sweet together and they seem to make each other look really good… or perhaps it’s just the suits. (I love how Adler chose something silver instead of black, by the way.) The last time I saw them posing for a picture together was in Halloween, while they were decked in their Halloween costumes, so that photo didn’t really inspire a lot of squee from a (now former) Kurtofsky non-believer. This photo, however…
All I’m saying is, there’s a selling point here. If the Glee producers were worried they wouldn’t be able to ‘market’ a pairing like Kurt Hummel and Dave Karofsky together, they would be wrong. Both Colfer and Adler are already great actors, but now that we know they look good standing side by side and posing as if this was a picture taken of their wedding 10 years into their characters’ future, they are now great actors whose image can be ‘sold’ to convince the audience that their pairing would work.
Or maybe that’s just me. Or maybe that’s just the suits. Whoever dressed these young men should be given a pat in the back and a handshake full of kudos.
