Glee star Darren Criss was reportedly offered a hosting role on the FOX singing competition show X Factor.
A source told E! News that Criss declined the offer. The source says Criss passed up the opportunity because of his busy schedule.
“They were after him,” a show insider said. “But there’s no way he could have done it with everything he has going on.”
X Factor’s original host, Steve Jones, was let go for the second season along with judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. It is rumored that Britney Spears has been offered one of the judging roles.
Reps for Criss and FOX did not comment for this story.
