Adam Kolkin, Young Actor from Last Night's Glee, Hopes It'll Be His Big Break

Did you get a look at the kid who played Kurt at age 8 on last night's

Glee

? Talk about a dead ringer!

It turns out the young actor who played the younger version of Chris Colfer's character in flashbacks is a 13-year-old freshman at Los Alamitos High School, which was where Glee star Matthew Morrison attended the Orange County High School of the Arts before it moved to Santa Ana.

The kid, by the way, is Adam Kolkin, whose last name even sounds at bit like Colfer.

Kolkin filmed the episode one day in August and, though Colfer was not scheduled to work that day, the older Kurt came by the set to support his young double.

Though this was Kolkin's first scripted television role, he's been acting since age 9 and hopes the Glee appearance will be his big break.
