Criss is the star of the forthcoming installment of the American Crime Story franchise, The Assassination of Gianni Versace. The series is an FX original and under the new deal Foxtel has for FX programming, the series will screen on the showcase channel and also be available on demand.

Foxtel had decorated The Ivy Penthouse with a shimmering golden curtain, which provided a glamorous backdrop for photos.

Key invited media mingled with Foxtel executives Stephen Baldwin and Jim Buchanwhile Foxtel’s Jamie Campbell conducted an informal interview with Criss before showing a short highlights reel.

Criss has many fans in Australia from his good work on Glee as Blaine Anderson. Campbell and Criss spoke about how the actor prepared for his role in The Assassination of Gianni Versace, where he plays the murderer Andrew Cunanan.

Inspired by actual events, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story is the second installment of FX’s award-winning limited series, American Crime Story.

Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Alexis Martin Woodall, Dan Minahan, Tom Rob Smith, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski are Executive Producers of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. It is written by Tom Rob Smith, and Ryan Murphy directed the premiere episode of the series, which stars Darren Criss, Edgar Ramirez, Penelope Cruz and Ricky Martin.  The series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.

GUEST BIO

Darren Criss stars as Andrew Cunanan in the FX anthology series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

Criss is an Emmy®️ nominated artist with an illustrious career spanning television, film, music and stage.

Criss debuted his indiepop band Computer Games along with his brother Chuck Criss. Their first album, Lost Boys Life EP, which features four songs written by the duo, quickly became a fan favorite and debuted to rave reviews. The lead single “Every Single Night” debuted at #2 on Billboard’s “Hot Singles” chart and landed on various lists including “50 Best Songs of 2017 So Far,” “20 Awesome Pop Songs From 2017’s First Half You Might Have Missed,” “10 Great Pop Songs From March You Might’ve Missed” and deemed one of the best moments at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards. Teen Vogue labeled the album as “an indie gem filled with plenty of 80s pop inspiration and a dash of true DIY sensibility,” while Entertainment Weekly described their sound as “a funky blast to the past in the spirit of some of the grooviest ’80s superstars.”

Last fall, Criss returned to Broadway in his critically-acclaimed performance as “Hedwig” in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which kicked off the 2014 Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival’s national tour. The New York Times touted Criss as “mesmerizing” when he first stepped into the title role on Broadway in 2015. Criss made his Broadway debut in January of 2012 as “J. Pierrepont Finch” in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. With Criss at the helm, the revival made just under $4 million, which proved to be the most lucrative three weeks of its 11-month run. Criss is also the co-founder of New York City’s first showtunes music festival, Elsie Fest.

Criss is best known for playing “Blaine Anderson” on FOX’s global phenomenon Glee. He received an Emmy nomination in 2015 for Best Original Music and Lyrics for the song “This Time,” which appeared in the episode titled “Dreams Come True.” As a member of the cast, he was also nominated for two Screen Actors Guild®️ Awards. Criss’ previous credits include Girl Most Likely, American Horror Story, Web Therapy and Eastwick.

We will be screening episode 9 - “Alone”

American Crime Story: The Truth Behind That Surprising Musical Cameo

February 7, 2018

Yeah—the lyrics “you can’t go on thinking nothing’s wrong” seem pretty appropriate here. I wanted to ask for your take on what Darren Criss is giving in that scene as he listens to the song. We see Andrew overwhelmed by emotion—what emotion do you think that is?

Simpson: When Tom was writing it, I think he wanted to have two things going on. It’s a turning point in the episode. For David, he’s looking out the window of the bathroom and realizing that he’s trapped with Andrew. Maybe he could climb through the window and maybe he couldn’t, but he returns to Andrew. One of the things that’s happening for Andrew in that scene—and it’s one of the few times so far that we’ve seen any real emotion—the way Dan Minahan directed [Darren] to play it, and the way that Tom had written it, was the idea of: you’re watching the singer, David’s gone to the bathroom, and you’re feeling this sense of loss. You think he may have escaped. But either way, there’s an undercurrent of dread that you may have lost him no matter what. Darren wanted to get psyched up and do it in one take—you know, the slow push in that ends with him crying. And we gave him the space that he needed, and just did the long, slow push into the tear, and then he follows up with such joy.

Warning:  Spoilers!  Please visit the site to give the article a number of "clicks" (for Darren!).   Such an interesting interview, where he spans several topics, from his view of portraying Andrew Cunanan, to his need to feel different since he was young, to his philosophy about acting, to his engagement to Mia, to his gratitude for the opportunities granted to him by Ryan Murphy, to what the future holds for him as an actor.  I thought his choice of words was interesting, at the end of the article, when he talked about his future in acting, he used the word "abyss," which often has a negative connotation of darkness and falling, instead of using a more positive word or imagery (a wide open meadow full of various trails to explore).  I wonder if the possibility of more fame inspires some trepidation in Darren.   (Or haha, I could be just reading too much into it, since he did use the word "precipice" before using "abyss.")

Darren Criss Has Never Wanted To Be Ordinary

[Feb. 7, 2018?]

Darren Criss has never killed anyone. In fact, it’s hard to imagine the 31-year-old actor so much as raising his voice at anyone given how disarmingly kind and solicitous he is in person. When he arrives for his photoshoot, he immediately learns the names of everybody on set; as various editors drop in, either to check in on the shoot or to gawk at the celebrity in our midst, Criss goes out out of his way to make introductions—impressively listing off everyone’s name in the room. But Criss has found more in common with Andrew Cunanan, the social-climbing narcissist turned serial killer he plays in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, than he expected.

“People always ask me, ‘What’s it like to get into the mind of a killer?’” Criss says, slipping into a gravelly Movie Trailer Voice as we talk over coffee. “But you’re not doing that! I mean, a killer doesn’t get into the mind of a killer—they’re just existing. We boil it down to killing somebody and go, ‘I’ve never done that, so that’s definitely as far from me as possible.’ But the things that inform those decisions can be very close to who we are. We all have access to the same variety of emotions. You just ride them at a certain frequency, and it takes you to a certain place.

[. . . ]

There are, Criss says, “a lot of similarities between us that I like to remind myself and other people of,” beyond the striking physical resemblance and biographical parallels (both Cunanan and Criss are half-Filipino and California natives). “What it is to want what you can't have—that I get. Who doesn't know what it's like to feel unloved, or want to rise above your station, or just on a very simple level be liked?”

It’s the latter that comes through most powerfully in Criss’s mesmerizing, profoundly unsettling performance: the sense that Cunanan needs to be not just liked, but adored. Underlying all of his tall tales—the lies about his wealthy upbringing and influential friends, the personas he adopts and discards—is a kind of naked desperation that puts the audience on edge even when nothing overtly bad is happening. He is, to put it generously, extra. And as the lies stop working for him, and more and more people begin to see through him, that neediness turns vicious.

[. . . ]

[Criss states,] “I really reveled in being different,” he tells me. “I didn't want to be normal. I didn't want to be put in a corner. I know what it's like to want to stand out. Andrew had that too, but we had different reasons. He used it as a social statement, where I just liked the feeling of not being like everybody else. I think he did it to lord his status over other people; for me, it was a way to connect with people.”

I bring up a standout moment from this week's episode, “House by the Lake,” the fourth of the season. . . . The pair stop at a roadside bar, where Aimee Mann sings a mournful cover of The Cars’ “Drive.” While Madson goes to the bathroom—and considers trying to escape through a window—we stay with Cunanan, in a rare moment of honesty. In an unbroken 90-second shot, we slowly pan in on Criss’s face as he begins to cry, watching Mann sing the song and taking in its lyrics (“Who’s gonna drive you home tonight?”). It’s an unsettling scene because of how moving it is, despite coming moments after we’ve seen Cunanan beat a man to death with a claw hammer.

[. . .]

For all the commonalities he’s found with Cunanan, Criss is not remotely method, and he has no trouble getting out of character even on the darkest days of material. “Some people need to scream into a pillow and run off and do their thing and live with their character non-stop,” he says. “I am not one of those people, and sometimes I feel like a bad actor because I'm not. But I think for me, things live and die between action and cut, or lights up and lights out. I feel like if I live with something too long, then I cheat the immediacy of the moment.”

[. . .]

Two days after Versace's premiere, Criss announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Mia Swier via Twitter and Instagram. “It was a long time coming,” he says. “We’d waited a while before we announced it. I had a whole thing written, like, ‘Usually I don’t like talking about my private life...’ which I really don’t—I was really allergic to it for a while. Eventually I got over myself and realized that it’s just the best way to let people know.”

So 2018 is a banner year for Criss on many levels; though it’s early to start talking Emmys, it’s hard to imagine him not being a frontrunner for his revelatory performance. “We’ll see,” he says, downplaying awards buzz. “The success for me is that people are talking about it. But this is a moment for me, and I recognize that, because I've had one before. The fact that I've gotten another one from Ryan Murphy is not beyond my understanding, and I'm trying to enjoy it as much as I can. I feel like I'm very much on a precipice, so I'm excited to see who or what is in the abyss.”

Criss is best known for playing “Blaine Anderson” on FOX’s global phenomenon Glee. He received an Emmy nomination in 2015 for Best Original Music and Lyrics for the song “This Time,” which appeared in the episode titled “Dreams Come True.” As a member of the cast, he was also nominated for two Screen Actors Guild®️ Awards. Criss’ previous credits include Girl Most Likely, American Horror Story, Web Therapy and Eastwick.

General News You Want to Talk About - Thu Jun 29, 2017 3:45 pm

I'm pasting in this message from Indivisible about 2 Immigration Bills which the Republicans are quietly pushing to a vote TODAY in the House of Representatives.

** URGENT!! TIME SENSITIVE **
** HOUSE WILL VOTE ON THURSDAY 6/29 **
** CALL YOUR REPS: HOUSE TO VOTE ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION BILLS **


Following in the Senate’s footsteps, the House is now bypassing legislative procedure norms to push partisan bills through Congress faster. The bill was recently introduced on 6/22 with no time for amendments.

‘The House will vote THIS THURSDAY on two bills aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration, putting one of President Donald Trump’s signature issues in the spotlight before Congress adjourns for its Fourth of July recess.


#1. H.R. 3003 - NO SANCTUARY FOR CRIMINALS ACT, which would withhold federal law enforcement grants from cities & states that have declared themselves sanctuaries for unauthorized immigrants by not assisting the federal government in enforcing immigration law. As an example, ICE detainers would now be legally honored versus the current policy of only honoring a judicial warrant. Sanctuary jurisdictions would be exposed to lawsuits filed by the victims of crimes committed by unauthorized immigrants after the jurisdiction released them from custody.


#2. H.R. 3004 - KATE’S LAW, which has been a part of Trump’s immigration policy platform since his campaign. Kate’s Law would allow for enhancement of criminal sentences for unauthorized immigrants who repeatedly re-enter the U.S. Punishments would be progressively harsher for unauthorized immigrants who have been convicted of misdemeanors or felonies, based on the severity of their offense.


How to Find Your House Rep

1. Go to one of these links:
http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/
or
https://www.contactingcongress.org/

https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members

2. Reisistbot app: Use your texting service and type the number '50409' Type 'Resist' in the text line. The app will ask you a series of questions to determine your members of Congress. It will then prompt you for your message, which will be faxed. Very easy and user friendly!

SCRIPT:
Hi, my name is xxx, a constituent in zip code xxx.

I’m urging House member xxx to vote NO on the 2 immigration House bills, HR 3003 No Sanctuary for Criminals Act and HR 3004 Kate’s Law.

These are related to Trump administrations’ crackdown on illegal immigration.


HR 3003 is taking aim at Sanctuary cities themselves, overriding their local detention policies and barring them from receiving Homeland Security and Justice Dept. grants, if they don’t comply.


HR3004 makes it more difficult for defendants to challenge wrongful prior removals and makes no exceptions for asylum seekers.

The US is a nation of immigrants and studies show immigrants are far less likely to commit crimes than those born in the US.

Together these bills would increase prison population as well as the fear level within our communities. Please urge the Congress member xxx to vote NO and much gratitude for the support!

Blaine Anderson in the News - Tue Jul 05, 2016 11:35 pm

Just posting some old news from dailydarrennews:

The Greatest LGBT TV Characters of All Time
Santana Lopez, Blaine Anderson and Kurt Hummel, Glee (Naya Rivera, Darren Criss and Chris Colfer)
Santana (Rivera) didn’t get the story development she deserved when she came out, but she spat in the face of lesbian stereotypes and never apologized for who she was on Glee. Meanwhile, the Kurt (Colfer) and Blaine (Criss) love saga became the backbone of the show in later seasons and fostered one of the most ferocious online followings. #Klaine forever.




Teen Vogue wrote:

Not only does Darren Criss have an incredible voice and mad swagger, but this is the point in the series when we start to see something beautiful developing between Kurt and Blaine. Go back to where the magic began and relive your own teenage dream while watching Kurt make some serious heart-eyes at Blaine. D’aww.

This pic never fails to crack me up because of Blaine's face in the first pic (he must have had a lot of punch).  :big grin

From dailydarrennews:


An article in OC Register about The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl. 



"Concert Version of 'The Little Mermaid' will pack them in at the Hollywood Bowl"


"Darren Criss knew people adored the animated Disney musical 'The Little Mermaid,' but the announcement recently of a special live version at the Hollywood Bowl – with Criss as Prince Eric, the human love interest of the mermaid Ariel – really drove home that point, he says.


'Of all the things I’ve ever done, whether it was a show on Broadway or a tour, I have never in my short career had my email, phone and all my connective tissue to the outside world be so saturated and blown up as the day that thing got announced,' says the 29-year-old singer and actor known by many for his role as Blaine Anderson on 'Glee.'


'People love – LOVE – "The Little Mermaid." Big, bold letters, underlined.'


[…] Criss expressed similar sentiment for a movie that meant and still means so much to him he apologized several times for not being able to express himself as well as he wanted.


'I grow inarticulate in trying to make clear how big of a (bleepin’) deal that movie is to guys like me,' Criss says. 'I remember trying to write a bio for the program for this and it was hard for me to encapsulate how significant that movie is to my life without sounding hyperbolic or too cheeseball.'


How big a fan is Criss of 'Little Mermaid' and the Disney musicals? At college in Michigan he used to play Disney songs during brunch at a local cafe, and one day – well, let’s let him tell it.


'So of course I’m playing "Part Of Your World" (from "Little Mermaid") and Alan Menken just walks in,' Criss says. 'And part of me was just, "Oh, sorry, man, I’m so sorry," because you know I’m playing it in my own style.'


Menken apparently didn’t mind: 'He gave me a hundred dollar bill,' Criss says.


'Not only did it change the cultural landscape, but for my generation it’s basically our "Frozen,’'' he says. 'The one mutual friend we all have is the Little Mermaid.'"

See the Cast of ‘Glee’ on Their First Red Carpet Vs. Now!
 It’s hard to believe that Glee’s been off the air for an entire year! And even harder to believe that it first premiered seven years ago!
Most of the cast walked their very first red carpet around the time the show debuted in 2009, but other’s were in the spotlight before the series started.





Darren and Mia are at the BottleRock Napa Valley Festival 2016 (in California).    They have a huge line up of music artists, new and legends of the past.    bottlerocknapavalley

And Darren supporting Chad of A Great Big World, with this gorgeous song and video.    Did you know that Chad shared with the world that he has MS?   I wonder if this song is related to this song.   No way to know, but it's a beautiful song.  (Edit:  The message posted with the youtube video indicates it is related to Chad's refusal to just give up, MS or not.) 





Another "thank you" from Darren, this time to Da Man.  I love how considerate he is.
