Darren Criss: GLEE's Newest Star!

Darren Criss has been cast in Glee!

The actor-singer-songwriter, who played Matt Dallas’ bro on Eastwick, will play the character of Blaine — a cute and charismatic gay student from a rival glee club named the Dalton Academy Warblers.

Blaine will probably play a love interest/boyfriend for Kurt (Chris Colfer). Interesting casting!

DO YOU THINK Chris Colfer and Darren Criss would make a cute couple?

    glee should be up for an award for how many guest stars and new cast members come on the show but then it probably wouldn’t be fair to everyone else!!

    If he´ll play Kurts new boyfriend, I wonder where Sam (Chord) will end up? Maybe a new boyfriend for Rachel, Quinn, Santana or Sunshine. Maybe they will create a new love triangle for Rachel, Sam and Sunshine. Maybe Sam, Rachel and Finn. Maybe a love triangle for Artie, Sunshine and Sam. Or maybe a love triangle for Puck, Santana, and Sam or maybe Brittany, Sam and Santana. Maybe just Sam and Quinn. OK stop.. That´s a lot of maybe´s…

    Best casting ever! OMGOMGOMG! I hoped this would happen but I never thought it actually would. I am going to spontaniously combust from happiness when his character and Kurt are even in, like, the same shot. Casting guys over at Glee…you have made the best decision of your careers. You will not regret it XD

    OMG! I’m so excited that Darren’s going to be on Glee! He’s really an amazing musician and so talented in general. He deserves this!

    Wow, I am SO happy that Darren has joined the cast. If any of you haven’t seen it, I’d recommend watching “A Very Potter Musical” and “A Very Potter Sequel” (which he wrote all the music for)… even if you aren’t a Potter fan, you’ll PEE yourself laughing. I guarantee it. Oh, also, he has an EP out called “Human” that’s AMAZING. The songs on it are my favorites at the moment : )

    Oh, you can also find him here:

    And here’s where you can find AVPM and AVPS:

    Like I said, Darren is AMAZING and you should definitely check out his stuff : ) He’s definitely my favorite artist at the moment. You could say I have an obsession. But he deserves this, and I am so happy for him.

    I really want Chord Overstreet to play Chris Colfer’s boyfriend. Not that this guy isn’t cute. It’s just that chris and chord are why cuter together. I hope that chris character Kurt will end up with Chord’s character Sam. Not this guy can’t be with him. I know that Ryan said that Chord won’t be Chris’s boyfriend. But, I think that he is trying to throw us off.
