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

You know, the New York Times said, um, half the increase in support of gay marriage is due to generational turnover. That's what smart people call 'crazy, uptight bitches dying.' You guys lost, okay? And honestly the rest of us are just going about our business being normal and waiting for you not to be around, and not because you can stop us from getting married, but because you're kind of annoying.

I just want somebody to love me.
