darren criss glasses rebecca sanabria 320 02 'Glee': Darren Criss may become a regularFans may love “Glee” guest star Darren Criss after his debut on Tuesday’s (Nov. 9) episode, but the producers love him more.

The relatively unknown actor-musician will reportedly get a promotion from recurring character to series regular, according to Deadline. Zap2it has reached out to FOX, but has yet to get confirmation.

Criss plays Blaine, a student at the rival Dalton Academy, who sings lead in their show choir. He befriends Kurt (Chris Colfer) and is a mentor of sorts for being out in high school. A romance between the two is expected (hoped for), but not entirely assured yet.

Criss, a University of Michigan grad, previously had a recurring role on “Eastwick” and a guest spot on “Cold Case.” He’s also known for starring in and writing “A Very Potter Musical,” which sends up the Harry Potter books. (This is also why we chose the picture of him wearing glasses.)

We love him and his character Blaine so much, and last we checked, about 97 percent of Zap2it voters do too.. Do you know what this calls for? Yes, more “Teenage Dream”:
