Darren Criss, who graces our third cover, didn’t tackle parenthood, but he did have a completely transformational year. After building a name as a song-and-dance man — thanks mostly in part to his time starring on Glee — he caught the attention of prestige TV fans and Emmy voters alike in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. His portrayal of killer Andrew Cunanan, under the watchful eye of director Ryan Murphy, spooked even the biggest American Horror Story devotees.

He's looking for a project where he can write music for musical theater again.  (You hear that Lilikoiluv?)  And he's "in a lot of creative purgatory with a lot of different things and it's very exciting"!  Like what things, Darren???  And aw, Ryan's faith in and support of Darren is so heart-warming!

How Darren Criss transformed himself in the eyes of viewers — and Emmy voters

November 29, 2018

This was the year Darren Criss went from a teenage dream to an American psycho.

The 31-year-old actor first bounced and snapped his way into our hearts in Glee’s second season as out gay high schooler (and hair-pomade enthusiast) Blaine Anderson, who memorably covered Katy Perry’s ode to young love. Blaine and boyfriend Kurt (Chris Colfer) quickly became pop culture icons to the LGBTQ community.

“The greatest thing about playing Blaine is the fact that this character is so much bigger than myself,” Criss told EW back in 2010 shortly after his debut on the Fox phenom. “What he can stand for and bring to so many people is so much more significant and powerful than me just finally having a steady job.”

Andrew Cunanan, whom Criss played on FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, exists on the opposite, darker end of the spectrum. While Blaine was fully comfortable being his true self, Cunanan, who in 1997 murdered five people including designer Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramírez), struggled intensely with his own identity and image. Criss gave a transfixing performance, capturing the serial killer’s seductive charisma and calculated cruelty.

“I think my main interest playing someone like Andrew is, as much as we like to distance ourselves from people we put in the ‘horrific’ box, we have so much in common with these people,” says Criss.

Glee co-creator and Versace executive producer Ryan Murphy fought for Criss to play Cunanan.

“I thought there was a great dramatic actor inside there waiting to come out,” Murphy told EW in March. “
He took his responsibilities very seriously, and the best thing I can ever do, having the gig I have, is believing in people and giving them opportunities to shine. I am proud of him and I always knew he could do it.”

Murphy’s instincts and Criss’ talent led to an impressive Emmy haul for Versace this past September with seven wins, including Criss’ for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie.

“It’s one of the greatest acting gigs I’ve had in my career thus far for myriad reasons,” says Criss, who is currently on tour with his former Glee castmate Lea Michele and will costar with Woody Harrelson, Luke Evans, and Mandy Moore in Roland Emmerich’s 2019 historical drama Midway.

“The people involved, the story they’ve talked about, the questions it raised, the complexity of the character — everything that was on the menu was almost unfathomably awesome to me,” Criss says of Versace. “It’s so heartening to know that my pride and excitement and enthusiasm for this project is felt by other people.”

What happens when you get Mandy Moore, Angela Bassett and other actors together? Just watch

June 7, 2018

It’s the kind of ensemble that would make for a most epic cross-over TV episode. The Envelope gathered six actors who keep viewers glued to their screens (whichever form that may take) each week — Angela Bassett, who plays a police officer with a fractured home life on Fox’s “9-1-1”; Darren Criss, who plays killer Andrew Cunanan in FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”; Jonathan Groff, who portrays an FBI agent and criminal profiler in Netflix’s “Mindhunter”; Maggie Gyllenhaal, who plays a prostitute-turned-porn producer in HBO’s “The Deuce”; David Harbour, who stars as a gruff and tortured police chief in Netflix’s “Stranger Things”; and Mandy Moore, who plays America’s favorite time-jumping matriarch on NBC’s “This Is Us” — to discuss their craft. Which they did, at some length, but not without also covering secrets on set, cynicism and the lessons of “Gilligan’s Island.”

Here is an excerpt from their conversation, edited for length and clarity.

How did these roles for you challenge your comfort zone?


Darren Criss: This was the first time I had a real leading position. So the challenge was less about the content of the role and more about the workload itself. And that is exciting because it's fun to be in a position to sort of set a tone, in a crew and in a set.

I didn't realize it until now, but Myko Olivier (head Warbler of Seasons 6) played one of the Menendez brothers in the TV show, Menendez Blood Brothers. I'm glad that he's doing well.

Darren's and Chuck's concerts at El Plaza Condesa in Mexico City (March 31, 2018 and April 1, 2018)




From Darren Criss Army:


Such a beautiful view of the crowd.  :happy face

darrencriss What a weekend. Wish I could play CDMX every single night. #TBT

via Darren Criss Army








Saw that there were a bunch of more YouTube videos posted of the concerts.  I think I saw these on Darren Criss Army.


Videos by Yarlhine Ramirez, of the March 31 concert on Saturday.   The audios are very clear (a few of the Glee songs will have the sound of the audience singing along, but you can still hear Darren's voice clearly) ;  and the view is fairly  close.






























































































Videos by Estefania Itandehui Millan (of the March 31, 2018 concert).  Some of the videos are nice close-ups.  You can hear his voice very well in some videos and pretty well in others (depending on how much you can hear the audience singing along).




















That long scream from someone in the audience when Chuck starts singing.  :amused   Such nice harmonies between the brothers Criss.  heart































































Videos by NMS3112.  Nice close-ups. 




What a Feeling, plus We Like It.  Nice close ups.  Audio is a bit fuzzy, but so fun to see Darren close up in concert. At about point 4:30, he sings "We Like It."







Fun to watch Darren and Chuck.






"Human."  Very close up and clear audio.  Only the beginning is shaky.  His smiles at around point 0:45 and at 0:54 are very cute.






Nice close-up. 







Close-up.







Nice close-up







Beautiful close ups.  Audio has a little bit of static, but you can hear him pretty well.







Very nice close up.  Audio is a bit fuzzy/has static (but it's fun to watch the video due to the close-up.)

Matt Bomer on Making His Directorial Debut in American Crime Story: Versace: 'Can We Sympathize With a Monster?'

March 14, 2018

Speaking of exceptional performances, Bomer says he feels “spoiled” that he had a front-row seat to Criss’ take on Andrew almost from the very beginning. “I knew Darren was a brilliant actor and a great artist, but there were times where I would watch him on camera and it was like he just suddenly was this person,” Bomer recalls. “It was bone-chilling to watch.”

This is a pretty photo.  They both look lovely.  I love the bright colors and how his shirt matches the color of her dress (and the color is a beautiful, velvety-looking color, a cross between royal blue, and navy blue with shades of purple).

The Sit-Down by Broadway.com by Broadway.com on Apple Podcasts

Editor-in-Chief Paul Wontorek sits down with GLEE star and Broadway favorite Darren Criss (HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH) to chat about the upcoming Elsie Fest. In its third year, Criss’ ELSIE FEST is a concert celebrating musicals, featuring stars and songs from Broadway and beyond. Criss also discusses his involvement in the upcoming new installment of Ryan Murphy’s FX series AMERICAN CRIME STORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE, in which he plays serial killer Andrew Cunanan.


This interview originally aired on The Broadway.com show, which you can watch on YouTube, Facebook, smartTV apps and on Broadway.com.

It's interesting to hear Darren talk about Versace and his communications with Ryan Murphy about being cast in it.  Love hearing Darren talking about how this is such a big break for him and that he is so very excited/exhilarated about this project.  He said it seems that he waited his whole life for an opportunity like this--and it is so overwhelmingly important to him.  I like how he talks about the major milestones of his career:  StarKid was a launching pad.  Glee was a catapult.  And Versace is his big break.   :cry   He talked about how he and Ryan discussed it very early on, then some time passed, Darren had sold his pilot script for "Royalties,' and was working on another "thing" when he read an announcement about Versace American Crime Story.  So he contacted Ryan and they talked it out, and then that other "thing"/project then was put on the backburner, so that Darren could focus on working on Versace.   ( I still think that this other "thing"/project is "Royalties," especially since in this interview, he actually mentioned about the very same time he was so happy about selling the pilot script for "Royalties" was when he found out that Ryan was about to work on Versace.   But we shall see. . . :happy face )   Darren also stressed that the real life story surrounding Versace is very tragic.  And he gives more clarification about why he posted that instagram (haha!  Paul:  "So what's going on . . . you didn't have enough followers?").   I always appreciate how supportive Paul Wontorek is of Darren.  It's so nice to hear Paul being so enthusiastic about both Elsie Fest and Darren being cast in Versace

The audio is based on an interview that Darren did with Paul Wontorek of Broadway.com on August 4, 2017 (starting Point 16:38).  However, the audio seems longer, and the video seems edited so that it is shorter.  Warning:  If you are at work, etc., this video does contain that Instagram that Darren posted (about being sunburned etc), along with a paparazzi photo of Darren while filming Versace wearing a speedo.

Darren’s message to Craig Slaight at his farewell party - May 22, 2017

dylansaunders: Back for a San Francisco homecoming honoring Craig Slaight and his 29 incredible years as an educator and director at the Young Conservatory at @actsanfrancisco. I was lucky to call him a teacher, a mentor, and a friend during a pivotal time in my youth, and beyond. I’m glad you instilled a love of art, theatre, professionalism, craft, and community in this kid when you did, because it absolutely changed my life. “But then I remembered about my call and kept on going somehow.”
