“I practice Ninjutsu everyday, Ninjutsu is the art of ninja,” Colfer told O’Brien. “I have swords that I practice with everyday in my trailer, and it makes the cast very nervous.”

Colfer said he was inspired by an unlikely source in his pursuit of ninja mastery: the heroes in a half-shell.

“I grew up watching [Teenage Mutant] Ninja Turtles and I always wanted to do them and bought some on eBay finally, and taught, myself how to do it, so I have some tricks,” Colfer said.

“Clearly, you’ve studied this thoroughly,” O’Brien told him.

“They [the swords] are called Sai,” Colfer said, before launching into a sure-handed, Wolverine-esque display with the sharp objects.
