Darren Criss will be joining the show and play a gay character named Blaine who is part of a rival Glee Club called the Dalton Academy Warblers. An inside source tells EW that the pair will “maintain a strictly platonic friendship with McKinley High’s most out and proud pupil. But could that change as the season progresses? Yes, it could.”
Seems like the writers are keeping their options open. Perhaps Kurt will have a fling with a celebrity guest star (Fingers crossed for James Franco) before settling down with Blaine?
