Glee Casting Rumor: Darren Criss to Be Series Regular

by at . Comments

That was fast.

Deadline Hollywood reports that Glee producers are very close to making Darren Criss a series regular, just one day after he debuted on the Fox hit as Blaine, an openly gay student at Dalton Academy. The promotion would allegedly kick in at the start of season three.

Why the immediate promotion? Just watch Criss take on Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" below:

As for a spoiler concerning the November 23 episode...

According to Entertainment Weekly, Kurt soon won't be alone in his fight against that mean football player, Karofsky.

“Mr. Schu gets involved when he sees something done to Kurt and realizes he must take action," says an insider. "The episode is really about the repercussions for others... how people react to bullying when they are not the ones getting bullied."

I think it's a wonderful idea, he's talented and dreamy! He did a great job yesterday and I look forward to more of him :)

Glee Quotes

[to Kurt] You know, these Mounds bars are delicious, but you have to eat them. If you just hold them in your hand hoping that you might get to eat them one day, they're going to melt and you'll look like somebody just pooped in your hand. Don't let waiting for things to maybe work out with Blaine turn you into the guy who looks like somebody just pooped in their hand.

Blaine: Where's the bed?
Brittany: I removed it because when I imagined you two having sex I imagined a U-haul mounting a moped.
