Darren Criss Joins the Glee Cast

It’s not official yet, but sources are reporting that singer/actor Darren Criss will join Glee, playing a gay student who is a member of a rival show choir.

The reports claim that Darren’s character, Blaine, and Kurt (Chris Colfer) will have a platonic relationship. But, sources are not ruling out the possibility of the friendship blossoming into something more.

There’s been a ton of speculation around just who would be the love interest creator Ryan Murphy has promised for Kurt this season.  There are rumors that new gleekster, Sam played by Chord Overstreet will come out and hook up with Kurt.  But, that idea has been shot down by Chris Colfer who says there’s no sign of romance between Sam and Kurt in the 1st 4 episodes.

Keep in mind that Murphy has said that Kurt and his new BF would become a McKinley High power couple.  With Blaine attending another high school, it would be impossible for the pair to become prom kings, would it not?

Glee producers cast Criss via the nationwide open casting call that was conducted this summer.  You can check out his audition after the jump.  Also, check out his MySpace.
