The 20-year-old Emmy nominated actor, who plays Kurt Hummel on Fox’s breakout hit Glee, showed off his sword-handling skills for host Conan O’Brien, who sat by nervously watching Colfer’s impromptu talent show.
“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.
Glee airs on Fox at 8/7c Tuesdays, while Conan airs on weeknights on TBS at 11/10c.
