Darren Criss: Glee's Next Series Regular?

Darren Criss is poised to become a series regular on Glee!

The 23-year-old actor was introduced last night as a member of the Dalton School for Boys’ a cappella group – Darren and his fellow Warblers performed a rendition of Katy Perry‘s “Teenage Dream” that’s taken over the top spot on the iTunes singles chart!

Katy was even impressed, tweeting that she was going to make the song her new ringtone.

    I hope he is a regular. He’s cute and a good addition to the cast.

    I love Darren on Glee, but he’ll always be Harry freakin’ Potter to me :)

    We all should have a Blaine Shrine dedicated to COURAGE ( just like Kurt has in his locker) . Even if Blaine and Kurt aren’t lovers -we need MORE of Blain’s courage and vocal talents as well as the back up voices of the Tufts Beelzebubs. This was an amazing Glee and a most deserves STAR KID turn by Darren Criss – just another example of San Francisco Values at work ….

    Their a capella version was fantastic! I still have it playing in my head … along with the other thing bouncing around in there ;) Hope they get another great song to sing soon.

    Darren Criss would make a great addition to the already talented cast!

    God, I don’t turn to you very often but PLEASE make this happen.

    That would make me the happiest girl alive. Just watched the episode Never Been Kissed. And Darren freaking rocked it. He deserves this more then anything!

    Yes yes yes! That would be amazing! I just saw the new episode and I loved Darren in it! Blaine is just what Kurt needs right now, I loved to see him happy for once :D

  • marisa

    he’s GORGEOUS..damn i wish he were into girls ;)

  • kj

    ah HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!

    I heard that they were making him a series regular because the Producers actually like the story arch. I guess its like a little mini bully story arch, which is probably the only part of a storyline we’ve had all season (everything’s been filler). I like Kurt episodes because the kid can really act, which makes you into the show. I mean the songs are great covers, but if you don’t have a decent storyline you sort of lose the point.

  • yes!

    OMG YES!!! Keep him and get rid of pointless Sam!

    Teenage Dreams has been the best cover of the series. The warmth and charisma Darren brought to the screen had me smiling uncontrollably for the whole day. Unlike the other songs, I’ve replayed the video of him and the Warblers at LEAST 15 times and I’m still not sick of it!! This new storyline has reminded everyone how brilliant Glee can be. I have to agree with Estevan, the episodes based on Kurt are, in general the best and most heart wrenching.
    Darren is ALREADY attracting new viewers!! He deserves to be a regular!!

  • Bookworm

    Please God no. Blaine is smarmy and weirds me out. I don’t know if it’s because Darren Criss is a bad actor, or if that’s how he intended to play him, but he had an extremely strong used car salesman vibe (similar to Jesse, but worse because so many people are convinced he’s amazing just because of A very Potter blah blah blah). And I’m really not eager to see them try to make him Kurt’s bf, because they have next to no chemistry. KAROFSKY and Kurt had more chemistry than Kurt and Blaine.

  • Bookworm

    And can I just add, do we really need even more ‘regulars’ to clutter up and already extremely cluttered show. It’s gone down hill this season, partially because of the excess of characters that they have to try to follow.
