Darren Criss: 'I Don't Want Blaine to Leave Dalton'

Darren Criss proudly shows off his Just Jared coaster at the Entertainment Weekly party during Comic-Con 2011 on Saturday (July 23) in San Diego, Calif.

The 24-year-old Glee actor filled in JustJared.com on what he wants to happen to his character Blaine next season on the hit musical series.

“I don’t want him to leave Dalton, so I like seeing him go to Dalton. I like being there, I like the blazer, I like those boys and we’ve become really good friends,” Darren said.

“It’s very strange and surreal. I’m just some random ‘schmo’ so it’s kind of weird to be put in this position. It’s very humbling, it’s very encouraging, I feel very fortunate considering it’s a part that I believe in and on a show that I think has more value than just a television show. That’s been really special. I wish I could say it’s a dream come true, but quite frankly, my dreams weren’t that good as a kid. I didn’t have that big of an imagination,” Darren said about his breakout success.

It’s rumored that Darren may be replacing Daniel Radcliffe in the Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying? when he leaves in January.

  • Aaron

    doesn’t sound so great live

  • kat

    @Aaron: Have you seen him live?! Or are you just judging by the Glee concert, because when he does solo shows he’s amazing!

    love his eyes

  • Aaron

    @kat: yes at intimate fund raiser and really not great but he will improve. the issue is that glee enhances all singing so most dont sound great live

  • Claire

    I’ve seen him live and he was amazing! Beautiful voice. Though I’m sure he has some off-nights when his voice is tired or whatever. It happens to every singer. He’s been working non-stop, I don’t know when he rests!

  • Iffy Miffy

    @Aaron:

    Fund raiser? Then I can even guess which one it was and it was a long time ago in terms of his voice. He’s improved massively, he was great on Glee Live but also during his solo concerts. He sounds fantastic.

    He’s adorable.
