On the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Struck By Lightning–the film written and starring fellow Glee co-star Chris Colfer–Darren Criss hinted at some interesting developments for Blaine.
“There’s somebody that’s going to show up in an episode, that if people know where I come from–this is really insider stuff…Someone’s gonna show up…that’s really great.”
What do you think he’s talking about Glee fans? Perhaps in the upcoming “Sadie Hawkins” episode, Blaine will address the beating he took at the hands of a hater that drove him to transfer to Dalton from public high school. In case you don’t remember, in “First Kiss” the episode that introduced Darren’s character to Kurt, and the world, the Warbler shared a story with the bullied Kurt about how he and a boyfriend he took to his schools Sadie Hawkins dance were beat up by bullies. He advised Kurt to confront his tormentor (the closeted Karovsky) rather than run away like he did.
Or…some in the Glee world are speculating that one of his fellow Starkids–that’s the University of Michigan theater group he helped found–will appear as a guest star. That would be a cool meta development. Darren was famous on You Tube before Glee as the star of Starkid’s “A Very Potter Musical.”
What do you think?
Darren also dishes on Oliver Kieran Jones, cast as Kurt’s choir teacher at NYADA and a possible new love interest for Blaine’s ex!
“I really like Oliver a lot. I have not seen their scenes. He’s the new guy that’s uh…one of Kurt’s new friends, I shall say…I haven’t seen any of the footage, but he’s a lovely guy. I’m looking forward to it as much as the fans are to see how that shakes out.”
