Will read this interview later.  I remember being a fan of their interview of Darren when he was on Broadway in Hedwig.
The Daily Beast wrote:
How Darren Criss Became Versace’s Killer (And Why He Keeps Playing Gay)

1/17/18

Step-touching his way through the halls of the fictional Dalton High School—the hair perfectly parted, the navy blazer impeccably tailored, and amplifying an a capella rendition of a Katy Perry song through the sheer wattage of his all-American smile—a then-22-year-old Darren Criss, fresh out of college and making his debut as Blaine Anderson on a 2010 episode of Glee, was the epitome of the teenage dream.

Now, he’s the 30-year-old stuff of nightmares.

Well, he isn’t, exactly, but the serial killer he plays on The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story certainly is.

In many ways, Criss’ revelatory performance as Andrew Cunanan, the 27-year-old gay man who, after murdering five people including the famed fashion designer, became one of the most wanted serial killers in American history, is all the more unsettling because of its stark contrast to the genial crooner we were introduced to on Fox’s burned-fast-and-bright musical dramedy.

But then again, the surprise of a certain clean-cut progressiveness has been the hallmark of Criss’ still-young career.

“I think it’s really given me an alley-oop,” Criss says, referring to the initial shock a Glee fan might have to watching the actor as Cunanan, say, bind a rich john who hires him as an escort with duct tape and then gauge him with a hammer. “I’d like to think [audiences] would be interested and compelled anyway,” without this lingering image of Criss as Blaine, the consummate Nice Guy. “But I think it’s an extra nudge when you have that to juxtapose against.”

When we first met Darren Criss several years ago, he was wearing a thigh-length kimono and tending to his favorite blonde wig, remnants of sweat-sticky glitter smudging just about everything in sight—aided and abetted in its mission by the runoff from his sparkling go-go boots. We were in his dressing room backstage at the Belasco Theatre, high off the energy of his stage-scorching performance in as the titular transgender rocker in the 2015 musical revival Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

It was Criss’ first major gig after wrapping his run on Glee, and a thundering opening salvo in proving the breadth of his talents, let alone taste in projects.

Things are decidedly bleaker, or at the very least chillier, when we reunite two-and-a-half years later at a café in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York to talk Versace, inarguably the biggest and certainly darkest project of his career thus far. Still, Criss’ fashion choice is doing its part to dial up the fabulousness of the morning: a knee-length, forest green mohair overcoathe pets with pride when we compliment it. “One of the kids from Boy Band on Good Morning Americathis morning was like, ‘Yo bro, it looks like you skinned the Grinch!’” Criss laughs. “I’m like, that is indeed an apt observation.”

I did get a chance to watch Live with Kelly and Ryan this morning.  Kelly always has nice chemistry with Darren, and Ryan seems nice.  Darren looked relaxed.  My only suggestion would be to refrain from telling the story about leaving Penelope to talk to other celebrities, and to refrain from the bit that he's stated in other interviews where Darren challenges Ryan to find another half Filipino guy etc. to play the role.  It doesn't quite come across as humble, and honestly, I'm sure there are other Filipino or half-Filipino actors who are talented, can pass for that age range, and have a resemblance to Cunanan--I wouldn't assume there are no talented actors with that ethnicity in that age range who are available and working hard for such a great opportunity (I'm not saying they would be as talented as Darren, but I'm sure they are talented).   Ok, sorry, it just rubs me the wrong way a bit.  The way I look at it, Darren represents himself in the best light when he states how fortunate and lucky he feels he is to be in this project (which to his credit, he had stated before), because he really is fortunate and lucky to be in this project.  Ok, I'll stop. :talking

Vanity Fair wrote:
Andrew Cunanan and the Assassination of Gianni Versace, Revisited

January 11, 2018

The author of the book upon which the upcoming season of Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story is based discusses what has changed in the 20 years since the case gripped the nation, and what has not.

[. . . ]

“Darren Criss, who plays Cunanan, startled me because he looked so much like him. Criss is also half Filipino, just as Cunanan was.”

“Cunanan would have relished being played by Criss, who brings remarkable charisma and creepiness to the role. Still, the actor is cognizant of the pain and terror his victims will relive when the show airs. As he told me this fall: ‘My heart is really sensitive to the people who experienced something so horrible that I’m trying to breathe life into.’”
