“Glee” star Darren Criss could take over Daniel Radcliffe’s place in the Broadway musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”.
Darren Criss, the heartthrob of TV’s “Glee,” is expected to realize a longtime dream of starring on Broadway. Playbill.com got independent confirmation that Criss is in talks with the producers of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying to take over for star Daniel Radcliffe when the latter’s contract ends in January.
Criss ? who plays Blaine Anderson, the head of the prep-school glee group The Warblers on Fox’s “Glee” ? would play at least a three-week run as corporate climber J. Pierrepont Finch in How to Succeed and return to his TV and film obligations. Producers are seeking a third permanent-replacement Finch to carry on in late winter and spring.
If a deal is made, Criss will replace Radcliffe when the Harry Potter star finishes his run on January to return to movies. Criss will do a 3-week stint, from Jan. 3 through Jan. 22, in addition to 2 weeks of rehearsals in December, missing a total of an episode and a half of Glee.
