Darren Criss Turns Down 'X Factor' Hosting Gig?

Darren Criss was reportedly offered – but has declined – the hosting job at The X Factor.

The 25-year-old Glee star “politely” turned down the gig, which Steve Jones previously held for the U.S. version’s first season.

“They were after him,” a show insider told E! Online. “But there’s no way he could have done it with everything he has going on.”

Other recent X Factor news includes Britney Spears, who’s reportedly nearing a deal to be a judge on the new season.
