The adorable Darren Criss is in talks to become a series regular on the hit FOX show. Will his storyline lead him all the way to being crowned homecoming king with Kurt?

The anticipation was high for Darren Criss to start his story arc on Glee, and fans are more than pleased with what they saw Nov. 9 — immediately after his first episode, the adorable actor was trending on Twitter! Now we’re learning Gleeks aren’t the only ones taking notice of Darren’s teenage dreamy debut…

According to our sister site,, Darren is well on his way to becoming a series regular! (You may now take this moment to Gleek out.) He was originally cast as a just recurring character and was meant to be Kurt’s mentor and possible love interest, but after seeing the reception to his debut, the powers-that-be over at FOX want him back for much more!

Creator Ryan Murphy has already made plans to crown Kurt and his new boyfriend homecoming king and king this season. Could Darren be on his way to high school royalty? We hope so! also has exclusive details on how Darren was celebrating. We ran into a friend close to the new Glee cutie who told us she was rushing to fly from New York to Los Angeles because there was a viewing party being thrown in honor of his first episode! How sweet! We hope they told him how awesome he was!
