:Ooooh Twinsies again, Lin!
I get especially emotional over this little comment: source: unknown
Darren got Glee
just about a month later.
Yesss, that part always gets to me.
I was going to mention it, but I didn't have the gif on hand.
I was just thinking, so Darren graduated from U of Michigan in June 2009? And the last episode of Eastwick
("Tasers and Mind Erasers") that he appeared in, aired on December 2, 2009 (according to IMDB), so he must had filmed that episode some time prior to December 2009, maybe October/November 2009? And he was cast in Glee
one month after that video that Lin posted, so he was cast in Glee
in September 2010? So when he filmed that video in August 2010, he had been essentially unemployed for a while. He had said in several other interviews that he was about to call it quits (or something to that effect) because he was having a hard time getting another acting gig, and was going to focus instead on his music. Thinking about this context, it is especially touching that Darren was cast on Glee
soon after he said those words, and that he was on Glee
for 5 seasons and played a character that became so beloved.
Here is an interview that he did for the SAG Foundation 30th Anniversary, where he talked about the difficulty of getting acting jobs:
Darren Criss on his days as a struggling actor | SAG Foundation’s 30th Anniversary Celebration (November 5, 2015)
It's also funny that he talked about how the StarKid projects became something that people would connect to, "this band of ragtag misfits." Because people connected to the little band of ragtag misfits of Glee
I like how he made a pitch for Freelance Whales at the end of Interview 2, and that he said how proud he is of his brother. I love the support that he gives to his brother (and the support Chuck gives of him). Yes, Lilikoiluv, the Criss family love is wonderful to see.
I also like this little Darren-ism (about his Human
"It's the kind of music you can be friends with."
I don't remember everything!
For example, I love Darren and Harry's friendship, but I had completely forgotten about those fun Comic Con pictures you posted recently, so I agree it's nice that we can remind each other of stuff like that or fill in some blanks.
I agree, Lin!
I love that we learn from each other! I love the exchange and sharing!

sounds like a fun little game to play with movies that were shot in NYC last summer.
I've seen people on Twitter mention that the poster is somewhere in the background of the new Ghostbusters movie, too.
Oh man, I just saw Ghostbusters 2 today. I wish I had read your post first, Lin! I'm not the most observant person, so I don't know if the poster was in the subway scenes. We'll have to keep an eye out for other movies/TV shows filmed in NYC last summer.
