In a new Q and A with Darren Criss, the Glee star shares his thoughts on fandom, Blaine’s role in season 4, and which iconic break-up song he suggested for usage in the show. Warning: the following contains spoiler material for the new season of Glee.

Speaking to Billboard after Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out in New York City – where he shared a signing table in Saks with Anna Wintour – Darren revealed that a huge upcoming number being used in the season’s fourth episode, “The Break Up,” was his idea:

I texted Ryan Murphy a while back just saying, “hey, if you ever have any of the characters break up don’t miss out on the opportunity to use one of the greatest break-up pop songs of the last 100 years. You have to use ‘Don’t Speak.’ It can work as a duet, it can work as a four-part harmony. It’s a gold mine, you have to use that.” And I would rarely do stuff like that, but it’s one of my favorite songs ever written and I remember listening to it in the car and I pulled over and texted Ryan, “just a thought…” Then the script showed up and there it was and I was like, “yes!” I don’t want to take credit for it, but I did suggest it.

Don’t forget your tissues! Addressing a moment a little sooner than episode 4×04, as more spoilers and promos arise for the season 4 premiere, there has been significant discussion by fans about Blaine’s apparent personality transplant. As Darren describes:

Blaine’s like a meanie now. I don’t know what really happened! […] When we read the script I was like, “since when is Blaine really competitive?”

While the arrogance and vying for stardom is somewhat expected from most of New Directions – they’ve always been pretty self-serving, and newfound popularity is set to enhance what’s already there – Blaine has always seemed like the only one in that choir room who’s always a team player, happy to lead performances when given the position by others but never seeking to put himself on top, and it seems that this has gone so far as to confuse even the actor who plays him!

The article also features Darren discussing several elements of fandom – from discovering the “Darren Doesn’t Know” meme, a somewhat creeptastic meme based on an old photo and comments screen-capped from Darren’s private Facebook, to how he’s grateful to be able to rationalize with fans, describing an incident of filming the aforementioned “Don’t Speak” in a public park. Darren, who was “emotionally exhausted” and “upset” coming to the set directly from a moment of immense closure performing as Harry for the last time in Team Starkid’s A Very Potter Senior Year, had to ask fans at the set to move out of his eyeline during a take, and the fans were happy to comply and help him out.

Billboard also asked Darren whether he was aware of the fan campaign to have “Dress You Up”‘ the Madonna cover he sang for this year’s Fashion’s Night Out promo, released as a full track – and it linked to our article in the process! He admitted that he hasn’t heard the full version himself, so in his words: “I’ll get behind that.” Thanks, Darren!

What was your favorite part of this interview, and how do you feel about “Don’t Speak” and competa-Blaine?

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
