I’ve discovered a new favorite. Favorite what, I’m not entirely certain — favorite actor, favorite singer, favorite sorta-celebrity, favorite random-recent-college-grad-I-don’t-actually-know. All I know is that Darren Criss is, if you’ll pardon the A Very Potter Musical allusion, totally awesome.
He sings; he plays piano; he plays guitar; he starred in and co-wrote the music for A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel.
He’s Blaine (the pretty, preppy gay boy from Dalton Academy) on Glee, and I’m pretty much addicted to the video of him singing “Teenage Dream” (it makes me wish I could have gone to Dalton Academy to be a member of the Warblers).
He always wears pink sunglasses, and he’s adorably modest and normal.
In fact, I think that what I like best about Darren Criss is that he seems like such a normal guy — granted, an incredibly talented one, but an everyday sort of person nonetheless. He sort of seems like someone I could’ve known from college or high school, not some distant celebrity.
Plus, he sang an interview for Rolling Stone.
