Darren Criss who plays Blaine on Glee, reveals that he has a crush on his co-star: Heather Morris, who plays Brittany.
After performing on The Seven at MTV’s New York City studios on Tuesday, Criss said, “Everybody has a cool crush on Heather Morris. Everyone just wants to hang out with her and be her, basically – and by that I mean me.”
Though Criss is a newcomer to Glee, his first performance, Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” won fans over. It has taken the top spot on the digital sales chart, making him a star. He’s attended the Harry Potter premiere and the American Music Awards, where he met Perry.
Even with all the fuss over Criss, he admits, “I don’t feel this kind of crazy machine that is Glee. I watch it alone in my room on Hulu.” Criss also shares how busy he’s suddenly become,. “The cool thing about being busy with this show is that it is a character I really love and am really proud of,” he says about his character Blaine, a gay student at Dalton Academy, the all-boys prep school.
Though the “crazy machine that is Glee” hasn’t hit him yet, Criss is looking towards the future on the show. He shared some ideas for what he could see Blaine doing, “If they decided to open up season 3 with Blaine singing ‘Willkommen’ for no apparent reason. I’d be cool with that.”
Catch Criss on Glee’s next episode, “A Very Glee Christmas” on Tuesday December 7th.
