Yes, we all fell in love with Blaine Anderson the moment he appeared on screen in “Glee”. I mean really, how could you not fall head over heels with the guy who led the Warblers in an amazing rendition of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” last season? I have to admit, I downloaded his rendition of TD and prefer it to Katy’s. No offense, Miss Perry.

Speaking of Glee, how did the 24-year-old get time off from his schedule to make his Broadway debut in “How to Succeed”?

“I had my homework cut out for me. Glee is an interesting game. They’ll say, “You’re not shooting tomorrow. But you have to record two songs and you have dance rehearsal and you might have a fitting.” When I wasn’t doing all of that, I tried to have dance rehearsals for How to Succeed.”

Criss took over the role of J. Pierrepont Finch on January 3rd from “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe, who departed the musical January 1st after a 10 month run. Criss will perform until January 22nd. At the time of the Details interview, he had yet to meet Radcliffe, but that has since changed. The two finally got together and Radcliffe told MTV that they had a “lovely” chat.

When asked his most surreal moment during his rise to fame…

“I never thought I would meet Mariah Carey, but I really never thought I’d be introduced to her by Whitney Houston. She’s like, ‘Hey, baby, this is Mariah.’ I’m like, ‘I know. I’m Darren. I don’t know what I’m doing here.’”

This year we’ll see Criss on the silver screen as well, starring in the comedy “Imogene”, where Criss will play a cub to Kristen Wiig’s cougar.

“It’s fun to say that I’m the young love interest, but the film is more about how these two people find each other at this place in their life and strike up an unlikely relationship. It’s not like I’m with Stifler’s mom.”
