Report: Darren Criss Turned Down Gig As ‘X Factor’ Host

Glee’s Darren Criss could have been the host of the X Factor – but he declined the job. E! News reports that the 25-year-old actor was approached by Fox but he decided not to do it because of his busy schedule.

An insider from the show said, “They were after him. But there’s no way he could have done it with everything he has going on.”

Besides playing Blaine Anderson on Glee – Criss has had other projects in the works. Last year he was on Broadway in How To Succeed in Business Without Trying and worked on the film Imogene.

One gig he will be at for sure is at the fundraising event for the San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre gala in April. He will perform in an original musical production titled Tales of ACT.

He once said working on Glee is easy work.

In an interview with GQ he shared, “It’s all very relaxing. You get a trailer on-set. You get treated really well. I don’t shave when I’m not working.”
