Kevin even had other "Glee" alums jumping into his comments, as well as the Fox network's official account! Art didn't imitate life when it came to the characters they played on "Glee," but Kevin McHale still thinks it kind of feels that way when it comes to his co-star of several years, Darren Criss. McHale, who is openly gay in real life, played a straight character on the hit Fox show, while the opposite was true for Criss. He played a gay character, who wound up in a relationship on the show, even though he's straight. We kind of love that he chose the Emmy-dominant comedy series, as it emerged as one of the strongest representations of LGBTQ voices in recent years.

Darren Criss is easily best known as one-half of the most adorable relationship we ever saw on Glee , playing Blaine Anderson, the on-off boyfriend and — spoilers!

In the new Netflix show Hollywood , Darren Criss plays Raymond Ainsley, an up-and-coming director with a revolutionary vision. Most of Criss's screen time in Hollywood is spent charming the costumes off of Laura Harrier, who plays actress Camille Washington. After dating for seven-and-a-half years, Criss, 33, and Swier, 34, decided to " kick those adventures up a notch " and get engaged in In addition to starring in Hollywood , Criss served as an executive producer.
Darren Criss first made an indelible impression on viewers on the television show Glee as Blaine, the quintessential leading man to Kurt Hummel — and if there's anything to be said for how life imitates art, it's that the Emmy Award-winning actor is as swoon-worthy a romantic lead in real life to his wife, Mia Swier.
