Darren Criss Says Glee Character Will Serve as "Mentor" to Kurt

by at . Comments

Darren Criss is coming to Glee.

The musician has been cast as Blaine, a student at a rival high school who is rumored to come on board the show as Kurt's boyfriend. But when asked if this was the case, Criss told Entertainment Weekly everything is a "really big secret."

Criss

What can he reveal about his character?

“I think Blaine’s most important role is... as a mentor to Kurt,” said Criss, of his openly gay student. “At this point, Kurt’s [sexuality] has been such a sense of discord in his life. Blaine finds [being gay] empowering. He embraces who he is, and sees Kurt [struggling with] the same things that he had to deal with, and I think he wants to impart that knowledge.”

Criss will debut on November 9 and Blaine will cross paths with Kurt when the latter contemplates a transfer to Dalton Academy, where the former is a student.

Glee Quotes

Beiste: Dr. Jones said the new end of world date is September 27, 2014
Brittany: That gives us like two whole years of giving love and brutal honesty to everyone we know.

Will: I hate to say it but I think as long as you keep being yourself, your life is probably going to be a constant string of 'don't belongs'.
Unique: I know. I should probably start getting used to it.
Will: No, no. You should never get used to it. All great changes come from people who refused to get used to what was accepted but wasn't right. Slavery, gay rights, New Coke.
