American Horror Story "Room Service."  Aired (in the U.S.) November 4, 2015


Press leading up to the episode:



VanityFair.com wrote:
"Former Glee star Darren Criss is the latest handsome, square-jawed, brunette with a killer singing voice to be eyed for a role in American Horror Story: Hotel."
— VanityFair.com (x)




I really appreciate that Ryan Murphy thought of Darren when this role was written for AHS.

How did Darren Criss coming on AHS come about? Will you cast anyone else from Glee?

Ryan Murphy: I don’t know. I’m close to a number of them. The thing with Darren is he left Glee and went off to Hedwig, and it was such a sensation and he was so great. Darren and I had been talking about a number of things, and the thing about Darren is that I think he wants to do adult, different roles as I think anybody who’s played a teenager for more than four years would want to. He’s such a talented guy. Without telling me anything specific, he was just telling me about ‘the path that I’m on. This is what I want.’ We were writing this bat s–t crazy role on American Horror Story and I felt Darren would be good at this, because it’s completely different than anything you’ve seen him do before. He’s incredibly sexualized and violent in all his scenes for the most part with Kathy Bates. I thought, ‘Well, he’ll love that.’ We started filming and he didn’t disappoint. He’s just so talented. There’s nothing he can’t do. I feel the same way about Lea [Michele]. I feel the same way about many of them. You never say never—there’s room for it. If you’re in there, you’re in there. It really is a family feeling and a repertoire of people that come in and out. And that’s been great.

Aw, Ryan missed working with Darren.  It's nice that Ryan wanted to work with Darren again.  :happy face

Criss will be heading to Hotel to play a hipster who goes up against Kathy Bates. According to Murphy, Criss' casting happend due in part to Murphy not wanting to stop working with Criss after Glee.   


"I was sad to see him go," Murphy said of Criss. "I love him. I was so proud to see what he did with Hedwig [and the Angry Inch], and he had told me specifically, I don't want to do light stuff anymore. I wanna do dark. So we were creating a role that had a lot of scenes with Kathy Bates, so I called up Darren and I said, do you wanna do a real f--ker who gets to tussle with Kathy, and he said yes."

Entertainment Weekly wrote:

Part two finds Criss playing a hipster who, along with his girlfriend, leaves Silverlake to avoid trick-or-treaters. Given the couple’s snotty attitude, their decision to check into the Hotel Cortez is not ideal. “They’re horrified they can’t get their artisanal cheese and they hate the sheets and they put Iris [Kathy Bates] through the wringer and she’s not happy,” says Murphy.

darrencriss Looking through this new little script I got. And I’m likin what I’m seein. This should be fun… #AHSHotel






Media coverage of the episode:


E! Online wrote:
"Raise your hand if you could watch Darren Criss order artisanal cheeses and grilled romaine for daysssssss. Just kidding, we could not either, and that was annoyingly funny as hell, but kudos to the artist formerly known as Blaine for deftly playing such a douchetastic 180 as Hotel Cortez’s resident hipster a-hole in tonight’s American Horror Story: Hotel. (Glee’s Kurt would have put him on blast at the first pretentious eye-roll, thus saving his life, further proving Klaine fans made a really valid life choice.)"

I like how the reviewer of this site seems to know Darren's other work and that he seems to appreciate Darren's scenes in this AHS episode.
mymbuzz.com wrote:Darren Criss! Glee’s Blaine Anderson is tremendous fun in a brief turn here as a magnificently hideous hipster. As well as Glee, you may well have heard him do voice-over work on stunning anime movies The Wind Rises and The Tale Of Princess Kaguya. If not, go and watch them. They’re beautiful.

An interview where Darren talks about his experience on AHS




Darren Criss Talks Being Killed Off “American Horror Story”
What was it like for Criss to be TV killed by Kathy Bates? Then, hear all about his first acting gig that landed him his SAG card.




TV Fanatic wrote:It was absolutely lovely to see Darren Criss on the screen again. Part of me hopes he has unfinished business and winds up a permanent fixture at the hotel. I can see the social commentary about "Instagram influencers" continuing with the sharp wit Ryan Murphy often employs against pop culture and it would be divine.

He may look like a cutie here, but he was just obnoxious.  :happy face

(Ok, this works for me, but you might need to allow html in your preferences first to see the videos, so I'm putting them under a spoiler tag. Please let me know if it's working for you!)


Wow, Lin, so cool that you figured out how to embed non-youtube videos here.   If it's not too much trouble, do you mind posting a lesson on how you did it in this Topic/thread?   Some General Instructions of How to Use this Site  Thank you in advance, Lin! 

I love seeing Darren perform at his friend's wedding.  He sounds good.    Thanks again, Lin, for posting those videos and also the lovely pics!


One more wedding-related pic, with a nice message.  Darren looks cute in the pic.   She looks lovely.
