‘Glee’ Star Darren Criss Talks Possible Spin-Off

‘Glee’ favorite Darren Criss stopped by the Oxygen upfront presentation in New York this week and chatted about the possibility of his own spin-off to the hit show, according to Access Hollywood.

“Hey, I’m just happy to be invited to the party,” Criss said. “A spin-off, whatever they want, I’m happy where I am.”

Criss joined the cast of the hit singing show this season as a member of the Dalton Academy’s Warblers, an all-male singing group. His character, Blaine, is gay and serves as a friend and love interest for Kurt, played by Chris Colfer.

Though the speculation of a spin-off is just an idea at this point, Criss said he’s in if the project ever takes shape.

“I think Blaine serves a really cool function in the grander scheme of ‘Glee,’ so I don’t think we need to focus particularly — you know, but if they want to do it, hey, I’m down! Whatever they want,” he said.
Though the second season of ‘Glee’ is winding down — the finale airs May 24 — Criss has much to look forward to in the upcoming months. A Warblers-only ‘Glee’ album drops April 19, and Criss admits he’s surprised about the fan reaction.

“It’s just a bunch of Warbler songs, so I’ve been really happy that people have had such a positive response,” he said of the album. “I would have never guessed in a million years that that would happen.”

Fans will also get to see Criss be himself as Oxygen premieres ‘The Glee Project’ this summer, a new reality show chronicling the audition process to land a seven-episode arc on the hit FOX show.

“I was so happy that they even asked me in the first place,” Criss said of his role as a mentor on the new show. “These kids so talented and they’re so … they make me look like a hack, basically.”

‘The Glee Project’ airs on Oxygen on June 12.
