When word got out that FOX's hit musical dramedy Glee was moving to the Big Apple for the rest of the fifth season, the only thought that popped into our heads was, "So that means more Darren Criss in NYC, right?" Call us biased, but the City That Never Sleeps should just be nicknamed The City That Needs More Criss. Luckily, our favorite heartthrob opened up about what's in store for Glee fans, what his long-in-the-works album will sound like and, most importantly, if he's going to come back to Broadway.
In an interview with TheBacklot.com, Criss said he'd "love" to shoot Glee in NYC and that he thinks the upcoming move will make a lot of sense for most of the characters—especially for Blaine and Kurt (Chris Colfer). "For Blaine, if he moves to New York...I would assume they’re going to live together," he said. "Call me crazy, but when you get engaged to somebody usually that’s a good idea. So that will present a whole new structure to their relationship."
Criss also dished about the show's upcoming special two-part 100th episode, which will see the return of a slew of favorite characters, including Kristin Chenoweth's April Rhodes, Gwyneth Paltrow's Holly Holiday, Dianna Agron's Quinn Fabray, Amber Riley's Mercedes Jones and more. "We had a great dance rehearsal last week and it was the first time I’d been in the same room as all those people. It was great."
Criss told TheBacklot.com that he hopes his Glee co-star Lea Michele's upcoming debut album Louder is a smash hit because he thinks she's "a superstar." As for his own debut album? "Mine will be a little different, it’s a different process," he said. "I’m the nerdy rock musician who wants to make my nerdy rock and roll so I don’t know if it will be the same fanfare, but I’d like to finish it." Yet, the How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying alum miiiight just have another plan for 2014... "Or do another stage show or do a movie. I’ll take whatever they give me." WE'LL GIVE YOU WHATEVER YOU WANT.
