Glee star Chris Colfer is adding one more notch to his resume.
The 20 year-old actor has written and sold a TV pilot to Disney based on the kids book The Little Leftover Witch, by Florence Laughlin. The storyline follows a young witch who takes a tumble off her broom and has to stay with the human Doon family for one year because witches can only fly on Halloween night.
Colfer has written (and sold) a screenplay before. Struck by Lightning, the indie movie he penned, will film after the Glee tour he’s about to embark on with the cast.
The talented Colfer has done all this before his 21st birthday (May 27th FYI.)
What’s up next Chris?

Actress/singer Demi Lovato just announced she is leaving the Disney Channel series, “Sonny With a Chance”. The 18 year-old, who sought treatment for emotional and physical issues last year, confessed the decision to not return to the show was “nerve-racking”, but she has to move on.
“It made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music,” Demi tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “It’s kind of sad for me that a chapter of my life has ended but there couldn’t be a better time for me to move on.”
“I don’t think going back to Sonny would be healthy for my recovery,” says Demi. “Being in front of a camera would make me nervous.”
Disney respects the star’s decision and continues to fully support Demi, who now wants to focus on her music career. “Sonny With a Chance” will return to the screen as a sketch comedy called “So Random” in June 2011.
“We respect Demi’s decision to focus fulltime on her music and not immediately return to her acting career,” a rep for the Disney Channel said in a statement. “She is a talented young woman and our hearts are with her as she continues to take action to improve her health and bounce back from adversity.”
Demi tells all about her struggles with bulimia, cutting and depression in an interview for 20/20. “I’m really excited to see where everything goes,” Demi said of her future. Good luck, Demi!!

Aimee Teegarden walked the red carpet for the premiere of Scream 4 at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Monday, April 11th.
The former Friday Night Lights star wore a beautiful and classic white strapless Emporio Armani dress and Judith Leiber bag for the evening.
Teegarden was asked by MTV about her character’s chances of being the killer in the movie and said no way – her hair is far to awesome for that of a maniacal slasher!
“Why am I not the killer? I’m not the killer because I have great hair in the movie,” the 21 year-old joked. “And if you have great hair, you don’t die — bottom line.”

Singer/actress Demi Lovato was recently asked if she believed in ghosts because the American Idol mansion is apparently haunted and the Idol contestants have moved out. Demi’s answer will shock you!
The 18 year-old, who spent some time in rehab for emotional and physical issues, said she actually believes in ghost because she saw one when she was only 8 years old. NO way!
Demi said, “I’ve seen a ghost before. It was creepy. It was in my closet when I was like eight and it scared me to death.” (watch video at TMZ here).
SPOOOOKY!!! Do you believe in ghosts? And do you believe in aliens? What about Bigfoot and the Tooth Fairy? I kid. Not really. I actually believe in all of the above, except the Tooth Fairy (DUH!).

“Wizards of Waverly Place” star Selena Gomez is rumored to be shooting a reality show similar to Ashton Kutcher’s “Punk’d” for the Disney Channel, in which she will prank other Disney stars.
Wow. We like that idea! So Selena will not leave Disney as soon as she wraps up “Wizards of Waverly Place” final season!?! That is certainly good news, but it has not been confirmed by Disney yet.
“Selena shot the pilot and it’s basically like Ashton Kutcher’s old show, Punk’d, but with the Disney kids,” a source close to Selena said. “Selena was having a ton of fun with it. She’s a goof ball at heart.”
Funny. Must be a huge coincidence… Selena’s boyfriend, Justin Bieber, pranked his fellow tour mate, Willow Smith, in concert with a little help from his BFF, the “Whip My Hair” star’s brother, Jaden Smith this week – WATCH Video HERE.

Selena Gomez and The Scene performed at the 2011 Concert for Hope at the Gibson Ampitheatre in Los Angeles at the Universal City Walk to support the research and cancer treatment center City of Hope.
The annual event, now in it’s 3rd year, raises money and awareness for the institute working to prevent, treat and educate cancer patients.
Gomez stepped out on the red carpet wearing a cute black and white striped top with red knitted scarf and a set of dog tags almost hidden under the lacy knit. According to Tiger Beat, the dog tags are reportedly identical to the ones Justin Bieber wears.
The 18 year-old Disney star changed into a sparkling fuschia dress from Mandalay and silver ballet flats before hitting the stage. She and her band performed “Who Says” for the first time for the audience.
