Fill the inside of a hollow font

If i have a font that has a hollow inside, how can I fill the inside with color? I’ve tried using an inside stroke but that only strokes inside the lines, not the character. I can’t use masks because the text needs to be dynamic.

I’m using After Effects, but if someone knows how to do this in photoshop (other than the fill bucket), it might translate over..

You cannot fill the font without expanding the font in a program like Illustrator and using the live paint tool to fill the type but then you would not be able to change the letters.

Other options would be to edit the font itself and save it as a new font entirely or find a new font.
