ha!  I think that's the main character, isn't it?  Lin?  Dusty?  (I only watched the first few episodes.)

Yes, the main character. The actor just won an Emmy for the role, which Darren was congratulating him for in the first tweet.
While I would obviously love to see him on that show, I wouldn't read anything into the exchange. It's something a lot of shows do on their social media (take the names/icons of fans and incorporate them in a picture) to promote the show and make the fans feel engaged. And I think it's also not the first time Darren jokingly asked for a job on a project he likes (for example The Flash?).

But I AM curious if there's anything more to that haircut. When he was doing Hedwig last year, he cut it neither that short nor two weeks in advance, so I don't think it's for that.

Thanks Lin.  I remember the actor being very impressive and I remember that you really liked his acting.

Darren's nice congratulatory tweet to Rami:


September 19, 2016.




I was wondering if I was reading too much into the tweets by Mr. Robot, since I saw that twitter account tweeted a lot of similar tweets with other folks (many who were not actors).   

@Lin wrote:And I think it's also not the first time Darren jokingly asked for a job on a project he likes (for example The Flash?).

Oh yeah, that's right.   You have a good memory, Lin.  He doesn't do it often, though.  And speaking of The Flash, when is Darren going to be a guest star there?!   Come on, Grant, work your magic!


@Lin wrote:But I AM curious if there's anything more to that haircut. When he was doing Hedwig last year, he cut it neither that short nor two weeks in advance, so I don't think it's for that.

Yes, he didn't cut his hair that short for Hedwig on Broadway (and now that I think of it, yes, he didn't cut his hair two weeks in advance of the show).   Something else is happening . . .   it's gotta be a teaser for something else.  Probably not his music, because why would he need a short haircut for his own album/music?

hahaha!  It's truly amazing how different he looks with the new do.  I have to say, looking at the Global Citizen pics, I don't think he knows yet how to style it, since it's so different for him.  :amused  I'm missing the long curls.

Darren saw School of Rock. 

Some pics with fans.

daniellep321 When you’re at @sormusicalcelebrating the end of a long week and notice that Darren Criss is sitting two rows away from you, you work up the nerve to ask for a photo. From #Glee to his own music to seeing him as #Hedwig multiple times (he asked if we ever made out during the audience participation part of the show!), I’ve been a massive fan…and got to speak to him tonight. He was as nice and gracious as could be. Definitely lived up to the ideal. #darrencriss #elsiefest#schoolofrockbroadway









@bybrandonmarc What an amazing night and an amazing guy  heart  @DarrenCriss #schoolofrockbroadway



Darren's right eye looks a bit tired.   I hope he is rested before he begins Hedwig in SF.  Can't believe Hedwig will be starting in about 1.5 weeks!

I love Darren's positivity.  Live for the present, instead of dwelling on the past. 

“If I had the ability to relive any day in my life I don’t think I’d want to. I’ve had a pretty good run and I want to leave it at that. I can tell you a lot of days I don’t want to relive though. Like finals in college. It was horrible. Studying for tests is the worst.” - Darren Criss for Humans of Broadway

Hi dusty!  :hello

 Ha!  Everyone (but Jeremy :amused ) wants his curly hipster hair back.  I'm sure it will be back later (hopefully, he'll tour and have it back then.  I really, really hope he tours an international location, maybe in Europe).


But we were speculating the haircut was a sign of things to come!  Lin especially was excellent in sharpening  her detective skills.

@Lin wrote:
Darren cut his hair!

darrencriss The time has come!


darrencriss It is done.



Of course, this reminded me of a very important haircut that happened about six years ago...


Except when I went to look up the old tweets, I noticed that this didn't just happen ABOUT six years ago, it happened EXACTLY six years ago to the date and even posted within the same hour. Did he do that on purpose?  :cry




@Poppy wrote:And thank you for also posting those pics that Darren posted six years ago, to the exact date!   It can't be coincidence that he picked the same date.  Another milestone that he is sharing with his fans, as he gets ready for the Hedwig tour (and maybe other things too?).

The wording is similar for 2010 and 2016, too, with him saying something to the effect that time-wise, the moment has arrived where the haircut must happen (hmmmm.  for reasons).
2010:  "Well gang, it’s done."
2016:  "It is done."

That was for Jenna's final performance as Dawn.  Her character plays opposite Christopher Fitzgerald's Ogie, so Darren had two friends playing opposite each other.  I'm glad Darren had a chance to see them perform together in "Waitress." The play itself is doing well at the box office.  :happy face 

And I loved Darren's tweet response to Ana Gasteyer's "nasty woman" tweet!  Well played, sir!   thumbs up

Speaking for supporting his friends in Vulpeck, I liked Darren's pinkish Vulfpeck shirt he wore during a recent stage door! He looks good in reds and dark pinks (or any color really).

Hi Lilikoiluv!  :hello 

Thanks so much for the answer!   So cool that Jenna played across Christoper Fitzgerald, another friend of Darren.  Yes, and so great that he was able to see them perform together in Waitress!   Ok, so Waitress is not closing, but Jenna is leaving.  I'm sure she had a wonderful time being in that musical!

Yes, Darren's response to the "nasty woman" tweet by Ana Gasteyer was great!   I like how he took the opportunity to join in the community of folks who were responding to that "nasty woman" comment by Trump, and at the same time, promote Hedwig!  applause  Well played, indeed! 


I didn't even notice the Vulpeck shirt he wore, until you mentioned it, Lilikoiluv!  You are so observant!   So nice that he wore it!  He's such a good friend.  He does look especially good in reds and dark pinks.  I like that plaid shirt that had pink in it.    Thanks for posting that pic, Lilikoiluv!

Best known for his role as Blaine Anderson on the hit television series Glee, Criss is currently starring as Hedwig in the national tour of the hit Broadway musical, ” Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” which opens at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood on Nov. 1.

Criss began his career as one of the founding members of the Chicago-based musical theater company StarKid Productions, where he played the lead role of Harry Potter in “A Very Potter Musical.”

He has also starred in the Broadway production of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” has had recurring roles on television’sAmerican Horror Story, “” and made his feature film debut in the comedy”Girl Most Likely.”

Carnaval officially takes place from 6 to 11 p.m. Monday on Santa Monica Boulevard between La Cienega and Doheny. But unofficially it will launch Friday with private parties and bar events throughout WeHo, with some people celebrating through Sunday night before they hit Santa Monica Boulevard on Monday
