Yes, I agree, Jeremy, it would have been nice to get an update!
Lin! It's so nice to hear from you! I was thinking of dropping you a PM just to say hi. I hope you are doing well.
Hard to tell how recognizable Darren is to random people... Glee used to be VERY popular when he joined the show, but he looks pretty different from his character, so I don't think he gets recognized that much? A lot of those people who post selfies with him didn't just happen to run into him, they are fans who knew where he was from social media and went looking for him. Though there are definitely always people randomly recognize him on the spot, too. Easily distinguishable when they tag their posts #Blaine #Glee
or call him "Blane from Glee".
I agree, it's hard to predict if a random group of folks would recognize Darren. Glee was huge when Darren joined the show in Season 2. And Glee had plenty of older folks who were fans too (although I think most of its fans were younger people). Now that I think about it more, it may be that my husband's co-workers were not aware of Glee because they are on the most part, pretty conservative (as well as being older). I do live in a more conservative suburb (we moved for work/a job), so my frame of reference would be different than if I lived in a more liberal city. (When I used to live in northern Cal, I would guess that many folks even if they were older, would know of Glee, and possibly recognize Darren on the street.) Even where I live now, I knew a group of older women who actually had a Glee-viewing night every week. They are liberal folks. One of the women actually saw Darren at the Roxy when he first started Glee. Darren does look pretty different than Blaine, so that may cause him to sneak under the radar when he is out and about. Ha. Yes, love the tags #Blaine #Glee

I agree. I felt weirdly emotional too, seeing the resemblance and thinking of Darren possibly being in the production (if he was English).

Back at it with @darrencriss

...speaking of look-alikes! It's so cute that he always jokes about looking like Blaine.
(Oh, I just noticed DCN missed his hashtag - #fathersontimes
And of course, I'm very curious what they're working on.
He does look like an older Blaine, doesn't he? He could have played Blaine's dad, except for the Eurasian comment (since Blaine's mom didn't look Asian). I didn't even check to see that the tag was missing. So observant of you, Lin! Aw "fathersontimes."
Does anyone recognize this pic. Is it a recent one or older one?
Let's speculate! Maybe an album? Or a single? Or maybe music for a musical?
