Darren Criss Eyed For 3 Week Stint in “How To Succeed In Business”

Deadline is reporting that Glee’s breakout star, Darren Criss (Blaine) is set to begin negotiations to make his Broadway debut, succeeding Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe as the lead in the Broadway musical How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.

If a deal is made, Criss will replace Radcliffe when the Harry Potter star finishes his run in early January to return to movies. Criss will do a 3-week stint in addition to 2 weeks of rehearsals in December, missing a total of an episode and a half of Glee. Additionally, I hear that Criss may make his feature debut opposite Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening in Imogene for American Splendor helmers Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini as the Glee producers have agreed to accommodate him for that too.

Darren, the actor who portrayed Harry Potter in viral online videos will be stepping in for Daniel, the actor who played the boy wizard on the big screen.  That’s a very cool connection between the young actors. Right there.
