Chord Overstreet is his real name: "My real name is Chord Overstreet. I actually got my name because my dad is in the music business as a songwriter. I was the third one in my family born, and there are three notes in a chord, so that's how they came up with my name."

Caught Darren on Regis and Kelly. He wasn't much taller than Regis and that was when wearing shoes with a heel.

Interview wasn't very interesting. They basically just told the story of how he got on Glee (he cut his hair and auditioned for the third time).

There was a bit of an awkward moment when he was talking about StarKid and like "you might have heard of it" and no one clapped or anything.

Oh and Regis kept calling him Blaine.

by Anonymousreply 4903/07/2011

I love Darren but he is all over the talk shows and tells the same story over and over. And he drives me crazy with the way he constantly talks with his hands - it seems very effeminate - although there is nothing wrong with that. He also keeps telling the same story about "coming out of the closet as straight." I think he is over doing that - who cares? I too think that Chris Colfer has been "marginalized." He won a Golden Globe for LAST season; but this season has been all about "Blaine." With Colfer at Dalton, he also isn't getting much air time. Darren is dominating all the blogs and has dominated the iTunes charts. And I must admit that I have bought all of them.

Saying you "hate" Darren Criss is like saying you hate bunnies.

by Anonymousreply 5103/07/2011

R50 I believe the Golden Globe was partly for this season, though. This season and part of last season.

And Chris has had WAY more screen time this season than he did last season. I don't think people can complain about that. Darren may be singing more than him, but Chris has never really sung much on the show (and, again, he has sung more this season than last season, and he has two important songs in next week's episode, March 15), and the heart of the storyline is still his character.

I think most people are getting tired of Blaine, to be honest, and it's all the writers' fault. That and he sounds the same on every pointless song his character sings.

I do wish Darren would stop making jokes about "coming out straight." I find that whole story annoying.

Chris is singing in two of seven songs in that episode, but Darren is on three or four of them. He's probably battling Lea Michele for most solos this season and he's still a guest star (despite reports that say otherwise) so it's getting ridiculous.

R53 I agree it's ridiculous, but I'm just saying his presence is not marginalizing CHRIS, because Chris is singing more this season than he ever has.

I think he is taking away something from other characters, though. He especially didn't need to sing two songs in the Valentine's Day episode (although I do think SLS should have gone to Chris in particular).

And, yes, since he appeared on the show, DC has sung more than everyone in that span of episodes besides Lea. Glee needs to work on balance, because I no longer get excited for his songs, especially because they don't have any meaning to the plot.

by Anonymousreply 5603/08/2011

People are waiting for Darren to kiss Cris, not Cris kissing Darren. Darren is dominating the PR for the whole show. I wonder when the other cast members start getting annoyed/jealous (e.g. Overstreet). R52 is right - the writers are milking this plot for all its worth and we are buying it. And BTW, what was Darren's Bill's song all about in the episode after the Super Bowl? I loved it but it had noting to do with the story line. Darren is an amazing, intelligent talent - but he is beginning to get a bit tiring. It is time to move on. And no more photoshopped Out covers with fake abs - PLEASE!

I felt the love from Colfer's character last night but not so much from Blaine. For me, Darren's acting seemed a little awkward. I guess most people liked the singing of Animal, but it didn't do anything for me. (What was with all the foam?) My feeling is that is wasn't up to par with Darren's other performances. Oh well, I'm sure others will disagree. Anyway, as R58 says: Has Darren hit his peak already?

by Anonymousreply 7403/09/2011

I don't really get it either R74. But I don't think it is about him. It is simply about the gay tease perpetrated by Murphy and the Glee writers. Fortunately for Darren he has other projects going for him - because once the public gets tired of the tease or the %E2%80%9Ckiss%E2%80%9D is culminated, they will move on to someone/something else. For example, Chord Overstreet was the new hot kid on the block until Criss arrived. Now he is relegated to the woodwork and doesn%E2%80%99t get much PR.

I love Darren/Blaine, and I love Glee, but they do tend to over-do whatever seems to be selling. They push and push until whatever they are pushing is so over-the-top it has become laughable. They have done this with Sue and they are doing it with Blaine.

I also think Darren is cuter when he is a bit scruffy.

Why does Blaine sing lead on every damn song the Warblers perform? It's annoying and overload. And while I drool at the possibility of Chord Overstreet's character being gay, the thought of someone who looks like him dating Kurt is even more ludicrous than Blaine dating Kurt. It would have to be preceded by the disclaimer. Ripley's Believe It or Not!"

He's very cocky and full of himself when he really has no reason to be. Most fangirls just go gaga over him because he and Kurt are cute together, and they are blind because they are Gleeks.

We crow and whine about the dearth of supportive gay roles on TV.

After Darren Criss got popular from Glee, he said he felt like he couldn't use his twitter now that he was in the public eye. A day or two later the FreePavarotti account appeared and Darren stopped using his twitter.

It's definitely one of the Warblers although only a few of them know who is behind it. Fans assume it is Darren due to the references to things Darren likes and the fact that some of Darren's non-Glee friends follow it and/or are followed by the account.

R118 Luke Edgemon is one of the Warblers. He is only interesting if Darren is the one behind the account, since the Luke and "Pavarotti" are in some sort of relationship.

I don't hate him but soon his going to be one of those actors who loses where they came from. He's going to let go of starkid and I will be the first to say that i won't be a fan of his ever again when it happens. He always says he loves being on stage well then be on it. Don't say you don't have the time because there are others out there that make the time. I think the sad thing is most people are going to say he's this amazing song writer and singer. I will say he has an amazing voice because he does but he isn't the best song writer out there. i would even say he is really bad at it and i make fun of it because he's so series about his music. He could be grate but he's going to be ruined when he gets there. I wish it wasn't true but it is and i know a lot of people will disagree with this but look at it from an actors point of view. We do what we have to and that means selling our soul. I respect him for going out there and making it but he lost it when he stops making time with the people who were there when his name wasn't in the paper and his face wasn't everywhere. He is first and for-most an actor and we do what's right by our characters but there is always that fine line of is that to much. He losing who he was as he becomes who he is now. so no i don't hate him but i almost feel sorry for him. say what you will about this but its what i think and when and if it happens I TOLD YOU SO.

I made a comment on AE and got like 14 0 ratings from the crazy Gleeks, but they have to be blind, because he is not hot, AT. ALL. Bushy eyebrows, annoying hair, no cheekbone structure whatsoever, big nose, short, cocky, thinks he's all that. Why do all the women go gaga over him? I never thought he was hot.. barely average, even borderline ugly. How can so many people think he's hot? I just don't get it.. And how come he thinks so highly of himself? He thinks he's hot just because a lot of deluded and blind fangurls think he's hot when he's really not. His whole attitude is so off putting! yuck. Average looks combined with that attitude equals no thanks for me.

[quote]YES! I hate him too...I'm so sick of his goofy faces and constant attention seeking wackiness

But, just consider: if he were serious and intense in public appearances, then you'd complain about his being 'pretentious' or taking himself too seriously.

The point is, you hate him because you hate him, quite independent of whatever he actually does.

I understand hating someone like the woman-beating Chris Brown, or the gay-hating Tracy Morgan, and I myself hate the truly destructive Dick Cheney and the loathsome Koch brothers (do you even know who these people are?). But to hate some innocuous kid who sings and dances on a television show?

It demonstrates that you are a loser who fixates on random celebrities to give focus and meaning to an otherwise meaningless life. Grow up and focus your bile on some of the awful, destructive people who actually deserve it.

Oh yeah, he's fucking HOT, and I'd blow him on my mother's dinner table during Thanksgiving Dinner if I had the chance.

He's a KID! What is he? Twenty-two, twenty-three? Is there a manual for how to behave when you're suddenly the object of national attention? Charlie Sheen has been famous for a quarter of a century and he hasn't got it (of course, Charlie's insane, which doesn't help).

Sorry, you sound sane, but there's a celebrity culture in this country that strikes me as very unhealthy. You see it in the endless 'Why won't Anderson Cooper come OUT!' threads, placing way too much importance on the doings of people who mostly aren't very important, certainly not to our lives.

But he sure is one hot kid. I'd blow him on... Well, I already said.

But I agree with the comment upthread.....the delivery in many of his songs and/or the Warblers songs sounded VERY much the same.

He seems a little more natural and relaxed in his acting. And he is Glee's real "heartthrob" - I get that a lot more of the frauleins would be wet for Darren vs. Finn, who despite being a "senior" is, like, pushing 30.

And, uh.....offering constructive criticism doesn't make one a "hater." And if you want to prove someone wrong, you have to come back with something stronger than "Haters!"

Well if you don't hate him now you probably will soon. The writers are determined to make the audience love Blaine but I think it's going to backfire.

At first Blaine took my breath away, wishing I'd had a Teenage Dream just like that back in my school days. But the more Blaine I got all over my screen the less of him I wanted. Now, like Finn, I just want him to sit down, shut up and stop singing.

Darren Criss has a great PR team. He's been on TV lately because he's in People's Sexiest list and we got some completely corny beefcake shots of him shirtless (chest freshly waxed) on a beach. I'd have drooled once but now I look at that and think "famewhore". There's rumors (from a blind item) that he's fucking Ryan Murphy for exposure and, while I think the rumors are crap, it doesn't surprise me that that's his rep these days.

Glee is still very much the Lea/Chris/Cory show. Sure he has been established as one of the players after them but outside of singing fairly often he doesn't have that many scenes normally, which is pretty consistent with how it has been since he has been introduced.

Darren has been a true ally of the gay community and seems like a nice dude so it is hard for me to hate on him personally.

But it's a DL tradition to develop raging, total-out-of-proportion hatred of someone who's of little importance in the grand scheme of things, but incredibly important to the loser who's fixated on him/her (see Jodie Foster, and, of course, Anderson Cooper for prominent examples of this).

[quote]It still baffles me how this kid can go from a somewhat obscure theater show on the internet to having his name in lights on Broadway in just over a year

I'm baffled as to why you're baffled. Even when I was a kid, the phrase 'overnight sensation' was common (and that was a LONG time ago).

Get cast for a bit part in a hot property, get noticed by appealing to a substantial segment of the audience, get cast in other things by producers hoping to attract some of your heat. Mix, repeat, over and over since the beginning of showbiz. There's no great mystery to it. Now it's up to him to channel this moment into a career. I wish him luck 'cause he's hot and doesn't seem to be an asshole (at the moment).

His dad's wealth allowed both him and his brother Chuck Criss of Freelance Whales to pursue their artistic passions without having to support themselves. Amazingly it worked out well for both of them.

I saw Darren Criss on Broadway and his voice was thin. However, he was able to carry the show out of sheer charisma. He connects well with the audience, dancing and stunts were great and the fangirls (and boys) were plenty. How to Succeed was a brilliant career move for him as a limited engagement, he generated much money and press from this and he worked non-stop while in NY outside of the show. It was a perfect storm for him.

As state above, he has a quality that goes beyond just talent. He has talent - maybe not the best singer, best dancer, best songwriter, best actor - but all of that together, the kid will go places. A friend of mine in the business says he is one of the hottest commodities right now and he's got smart people advising him and daddy's trust fund to catch him if he falls. The charisma is what all the buzz is about right now as stated here many times.

And he is just, dreamy.

I agree Darren Criss could easily be the most famous Glee alumni but I don't think Broadway is the right way for him to go. He is a quite talented studio singer, but he does not have the broadway type voice. He should go for movie roles that utilize his charisma.

I know you're open to your own opinion and everything but seriously, WHAT THE FRAKING HELL?! He is seriously talented at acting, singing, songwriting, and dancing. He is VERY musical, playing the guitar, piano, violin, cello, mandolin, harmonica, drums, and didgeridoo for crying out loud. His work with Starkid Company is amazing as well as his more famous work on Glee and Broadway. Not only is he incredibly talented (not to mention supermegafoxyawesomehot) but he is most definitely NOT cocky - he is one of the most modest, down to earth, and downright ADORABLE people I have ever seen. He inspires people every day of his life, just look at some of the fan pages on facebook and twitter, and should be congratulated for his success. SO stop hating on him when you're probably just jealous anyway. Now if you'll excuse me, I'M IN A RAGE!

The unrelated shenanigans reportedly created such pandemonium the police had to shut the stage door down, something they didn’t even have to do for his much more famous predecessor. Between that, his mile-long Playbill bio, and his opening-night awe at being able to make his Broadway debut so young (ahem, Nick Jonas was 7; Lea Michele was 8), we’re smelling a full-tilt ego trip over there at the Hirschfeld and it’s making us sad.

I've heard from people who worked with him in NY that his ego runs unchecked and he has next to no work ethic. He actually told my friend that he was going to "save" the show he was brought in as a replacement for, and then put in next to no work during the short rehearsal period he had. When he finally went on, he flubbed lines and missed cues left and right. The cast couldn't wait until his short run was done.

If Ryan Murphy didn't have a thing for swarthy, zaftig, mongoloids poured into ill-fitting clothes from the Baby GAP (see also: Justin Bartha), we wouldn't even be talking about this kid, because he doesn't have what it takes to succeed in this business when he's not lying on his back.

Well, that makes me sad to hear, R368. He does give off the arrogant vibe though, and a lot of times his "nice boy" persona just seems like an act.

Darren is not hot, he has bushy eyebrows, bushy and ugly hair, a nose way too big for his face (sorta like Robert Pattinson), and no decernible cheekbone structure. Add to that him being way too short and you have one ugly MOFO. I seriously do not understand why he's so popular. Why do the fangirls like him so much? He doesn't seem particularly bright or nice either. He seems kinda cocky imo.
