Chris Colfer
Despite his young age, up-and-coming "Glee" actor Chris Colfer, 23, has already released a series of fantasy books for kids. The "Land of Stories" tomes follow twins Connor and Alex as they are sucked into some of their favorite fairy tales. Much of the credit for Colfer's interest in kids books goes to J.K. Rowling, because he says some of his favorite childhood memories include going to the bookstore at midnight to get the latest book in the Harry Potter series. Credit: Jim Spellman/WireImage
