Darren Criss Cast as Kurt’s New Boyfriend? Yes, No, Maybe…So

Okay, so between Chord Overstreet, Darren Criss, Finn…just kidding. But Kurt has been getting some lovin’ predictions/speculations, and now rabid Kurtsies are itching to know who it’s really going to be. And now Fox just threw us for another loop.

Seems singer-songwriter Darren Criss (Eastwick, A Very Potter Musical) has snagged the role of gay student, Blaine – of a rival school glee club, the Dalton Academy Warblers (Romeo and Juliet Rachel and Jesse, anyone?). Of course everyone’s thinking Criss will play Kurt’s upcoming love interest…but a source from Fox claims it’s still anyone’s guess:

“Although people might speculate that this might be the possible boyfriend for Kurt that Ryan has talked about, he is fairly sure that this particular character won’t be. This friendship will be platonic.”

So...who's it going to be (and who would you like it to be)? Cute and floppy rival gay student Blaine, or cute and blonde new footballer Sam? Or maybe you're waiting it out to see if it's somebody else. Hit the comments with your wishes/speculations! (And why not take a lookie here at Darren's open casting call video submission while you're at it?):

    Still hoping for Kurt/Sam!! I was really into Kurt/Finn, so figured no one could be win me over, but then I got on the Sam wagon. I dunno about Blaine. Now that Darren has cut his hair he looks more Kurt’s type, but I just don’t see the whole rival school romance happening again.

    Yay Darren! As a huge AVPM fan, I’m happy to see him getting recognized for his amazing talent. That being said, I am pulling for Kurt/Sam…

    @Liesl I know what you mean, that same thing happened to me (Kurt/Sam! Lol). After seeing Darren, I agree he’s very cute and does look more Kurt’s type…but you’re right about the rival romance thing getting old. I think it would be cool if some sort of love triangle (I know, I know…not ANOTHER love triangle) came into play between all three of them. Thinking maybe Sam’s unsure about his sexuality…that would be a cool plot line (especially if he ends up dating Quinn).

    I may just be crazy but I sense something different than what you all are thinking… I’m actually thinking it may be Kurt and Puck. I say this because Puck made that comment about Sam’s mouth being so big and then he asked how many balls could fit in it. I don’t think the producers just threw that in there with no reason. But it would be interesting if there was a love triangle involving Kurt and two other guys… hehehe

    i just keep hoping for Kurt/Sam but Ryan “Evil Genius” Murphy keeps changing the rules of the game!
    First he says it’s not gonna be Sam, then he says it may or may not be Blaine (not that I want Kurt/Blaine or anything)… at this point, i’m think he personally hates Kurt and the poor guy will just end up dying alone or settling for someone who TOTALLY doesn’t match up to him…
    PLEASE RYAN PLEASE, KURT/SAM!!!!
    listen to the masses wouldja?

    Darren isn’t very convincingly gay… I feel like Sam does a better job of being gay. but I like Kurt/Blaine <3
