Darren Criss is upgraded to regular cast on “Glee”
HollywoodNews.com: I’m both happy and sad about this bit of news about the Glee cast.
The oh-so talented and appealing Darren Criss has been promoted from recurring character to full-fledged episode meaning we will see even more of his gay character of Blaine in the show’s third season. Blaine is involved in a relationship with Kurt (Chris Colfer) and my guess is he will be transferring to McKinley High and join their Glee club.
Very smart of Glee to nab the full-time services of Criss who is a breakout star and one of the strongest singers on the show. He is a major S-T-A-R in the same way as Lea Michele is.
Sadly, the adorable Chord Overstreet, who plays the blond and beautiful singing jock Sam, has been dropped as a recurring character. For a time, it seemed that Sam was the new Big Man on Campus and casting a shadow over Finn (Cory Montieth) but by the end of last season, his character’s family was living in a motel and he was in serious need of a haircut. The character had originally been written as a love interest for Kurt but writers changed direction and made Sam straight because of Chord’s chemistry with co-star Diana Agron who plays cheerleader Quinn. But that on-screen romance quickly fizzled after a very sweet start.
