Darren Criss fits in the frame so well that "Glee" bosses are thinking of promoting him. Criss plays another gay character on the musical series and his debut on November 9 episode impressed a lot of people. He is now reportedly in talks to become a regular.

Criss' Blaine was initially set for a recurring character this season because creator Ryan Murphy wanted to do Chris Colfer's Kurt a justice by giving him a love interest. Deadline said that the promotion is likely to kick start the third season which has been confirmed by FOX.

For Criss, this would be his first big role on television yet. He was last seen as Josh Burton on the now-dead "Eastwick" and as a guest character on "Criminal Minds". He came into light when he starred on YouTube viral hit "A Very Potter Musical".

I hope they keep him. He is amazing. He could at least try and help them write some original songs. Darren is an amazing song writer as well as a singer and actor.

I really hope they keep him. His character is great. He is a great actor, and a great musician. He would be an amazing addition to the Glee cast. And I would love it if Kurt had a boyfriend who stayed!

Darren is such a talented person. The character Blaine is also very inspiring to a lot of people. I think its nice that Glee has brought in a genuinely nice character. They would be fools not to make him a regular :)

I'm glad that the Glee Producers are considering the possibility of giving Darren Criss a regular spot on the show. I like the character of Blaine because he's supportive to Kurt, who has been having a terrible time. This is really awesome because it shows how friendship is such a powerful and wonderful thing in this world.

Darren would seriously bring a whole new angle to the series. He already has a huge fan base from online (with AVPM), and although many in this fan base are violently opposed to Glee, you could not comprehend how many Harry Potter fans watched that episode just for him. To see him every week would be utterly amazing.
