Still such an awesome opportunity for Darren if he's "just" co-producing the show, but of course selfishly, I want to see him on my screen!
Patrick Carlyle posted this and liked the two tweets above, hmmmm. ( :fingers crossed )


The Billboard interview was fun! (But tssk, Keith and Darren, that's not how Hedwig is pronounced in German Razz )

The US election is just bizarre on so many levels to me. I don't know

At first, I was wondering if the 3 articles that came out  yesterday, November 7   (The Hollywood Reporter, Billboard, and Entertainment Weekly) were simply based on the article that came out on November 6 (Season-Zero), but the EW article, The Hollywood Reporter article and the Billboard article are worded differently than the article in Season-Zero.  It does seem like the network did a type of press release to these 3 entertainment sites (THR, Billboard, and EW), which is a positive sign.





@Lilikoiluv wrote:Darren's profile on the Hyphenate Creative Management site that Lin referred us to listed Darren's Producer status as "PRODUCER - development of original TV series’ for network and cable television.”  Now that has me wondering what kind of cable project(s) he may be involved with too. 

The use of the word "cable" was interesting.   And I agree, Lilikoiluv, it is nice to see Jonathan Gabay being enthusiastic about this project!

Thanks for sharing with us about what you noted about the Billboard podcast, Lilikoiluv.  I still need to try to see if it works for me.   Will try later (right now, my mind is fuzzy with political pundit talk.  I think I need to stop watching the news.  oh )

Well said, Lilikoiluv! 

Jeremy wrote:I don't get the Joaquin Phoenix reference
Yes, I'm not so sure what that means either.  I'm speculating that it has to do with a film called "I'm Still Here," which at the time it was released, people thought it was about Joaquin's life, but it later turned out that it was a "mockumentary."   Huffington Post




Lin, you are continuing to impress us with your sleuthing!   Thanks for letting us know that Patrick Carlyle liked those two tweets (and for his own tweet too).   

@Lin wrote:The Billboard interview was fun! (But tssk, Keith and Darren, that's not how Hedwig is pronounced in German )

haha!  :amused



So many things about this election is freaky and bizarre (and frightening, horrifying, and enraging).    I continue to feel it's surreal.

Thanks for the empathy, Jeremy.  I really need it.  I feel like I'm walking on pins and needles today.

Jeremy wrote:Btw, shouldn't we open a thread for Royalties ?


I prefer to wait until we get an announcement from the network about whether they have decided to pick up the pilot/series, but if others want me to, I'll open up a new thread.  I assume you would like a new thread for Royalties now, before an announcement by FOX, Jeremy?  Anyone else?

I know this is off-topic, but I just need to find some comfort.

Yay! DC has a new project! How exciting!! I'm certain he'll be in it. Sounds very strange for an actor to co-create a new show and not putting himself in one of the roles. Especially with the show focusing on an area he is very interested in himself. The tweets from Carlyle are also promising in that regard. Btw, I guess this show will have new music in it? Possibly written and (here's to hoping) sung by Darren? :big grin

Btw, poppy, I'm sending you a huge hug! A very strange day indeed.

Where are the pics of his costume? He always puts such effort in. His vampire and Babar costumes were great!

Opening the thread after the announcement by Fox is fine too :happy face

Besides, giving Darren a role would be a smart move. He can act and sing, he's already famous and, when Glee was still on air, his covers were one of the best-selling ones. So, Darren in the main cast would be quite a safe choice. Unless they can get bigger actors/singers, of course.

Darren and Mia dressed as Eleven and Barb from the Stranger Things TV show.   You can find pics and videos here:  Darren's Miscellaneous Projects and Events for 2016





Also Patrick Carlyle tweeted again:

FYI - Patrick Carlyle, one of the writers of Royalties who tweeted that some of the THR article was wrong, teased that the error may be that Darren actually is starring on the show…Take from it what you will.

Yes, it would seem strange if they didn't cast him. Since it is a music show I wonder if they will sell the songs on iTunes like they did with Glee. I wonder if it would star anyone else we know...

Poppy, thanks for the link to DC's Halloween costume. It was great! :laughing

Poppy,

I'm asking myself the same question. 

Who could be the two other main actors (or the three main actors if Darren don't appear in the show) ? Let's make suggestions :amused

Who is a songwriter?  Chord.  This may be Blam Part 2. :amused

I'm not very fan of the idea of Glee alumni in that show. Why not Joe or Nick Jonas, for example ? :amused

That sounds good too.  I'll take any of those guys on the show.  I've seen photos of Darren and Joe at the same events.  It seems they are friendly.  How about a woman songwriter/actor?  It'll be nice to have a woman character on the show as one of the songwriters.

Cute video.  I love that Darren takes time to do these kinds of things.  It's so cute to see how much it means to Avery.  Broadway Dreams strives "to provide youth and young adults of all socioeconomic backgrounds with performance training, life skills building, and mentorship opportunities from the entertainment industry's most distinguished talents."   BroadwayDreams.org



@bway_dreams: Avery Rehl is pretty excited for showcase, and apparently @DarrenCriss is too! #DreamersTakeNYC @HedwigOnBway

I'm okay for a girl. Maybe Darren will ask Lucy Hale to join the cast. PLL comes to an end and she's a singer.

Lucy Hale is a good suggestion.  Mae Whitman also sang on Parenthood.  She has great chemistry with Darren.  I think a woman character would be a huge bonus to the cast.  I love  variety and diversity in terms of characters.  I would love for Leslie Odom Jr. to be on the show.  He has great chemistry with Darren, has a beautiful voice and is a wonderful actor.

Lilikoiluv, there is even a pic of Ted the Dragonfly (4th pic from the top, under the pink sunglasses pic).  :happy face

Poppy, Blam2 would be awesome! I wouldn't mind any of the Glee alumni dropping in.

My mind is blank right now as to other suggestions. Maybe some of DC's Broadway buddies? Just saw Mae Whitman was suggested above, that would be great. Her and DC were great together in that Lisa Kudrow show.
