Ryan Murphy: Blaine and Kurt would be “too obvious.”

Season two of Glee has already begun, and boy has it been fun. Dot Jones is playing the school’s new football coach who has it out for Sue and Will’s budget! And of course you have heard, Brittany is coming. Well, CBS reports, Darren Criss is coming, too!

Criss is a young actor, singer, and songwriter who you may know as “Matt Dallas’ bro on Eastwick.” His character, Blaine, is described as “a cute and charismatic gay student from a rival Glee club named the Dalton Academy Warblers.” This sounds like a long-term, recurring role, but don’t expect Kurt and “Blaine” to get romantic just because they are both gay. Kurt is getting a love interest this season, the show’s creator confirmed, but Ryan Murphy also said Blaine and Kurt would be “too obvious.” He added, “our writers have a way of avoiding the obvious and throwing curveballs.”
