It was a good night for “Glee” at the Golden Globes, to say the least. If Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch’s wins (not to mention the show walking away with the award for Best Television Series- Comedy or Musical for the second straight year ) weren’t enough to satisfy fans, new addition Darren Criss had plenty of news to have them Gleeking out.
The actor — who made Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” even more popular than the original during his first season — talked about Justin Bieber and Gwyneth Paltrow with our very own Josh Horowitz.
The lively star, who donned a pair of hot-pink sunglasses, joked that he wanted to rock fellow Globes attendee and presenter Justin Bieber in his arms. In addition to finding out that the tween star was nearby, he also heard the news (thanks to co-star Amber Riley telling MTV News) that the “Glee” cast would be singing not one, but two Justin Bieber songs.
The star (who admitted he had previously heard word about the possibility of this happening) also said he wasn’t sure if he would be one of the castmembers belting out the Biebs’ hits. “If I do [sing them], I hope they tell me soon which one!” he said.
“It should be fun,” Criss said about the upcoming covers, adding, “I just hope they do the hairdo!”
But Bieber’s famed coif isn’t the only thing he hopes to see in the second half of the season, which returns in February. While he and guest star Gwyneth Paltrow both starred in the episode “The Substitute,” his character, Blaine, had no onscreen time with her Holly Holliday.
“I feel like I’m on my own spin-off: ’Dalton,’ ” Criss joked, referring to Dalton Academy, where his character attends school. “So I never get to meet or spend time with a lot of the guest stars.”
While it’s been reported that Paltrow’s substitute teacher will return to teach sex education at McKinley High School and will start up a relationship with Matthew Morrison’s Mr. Schuester, Criss had another story idea for the Oscar-winner.
“Maybe she could be a sub at Dalton! That would be awesome,” he suggested before confessing, “I’m in love with Gwyneth. I would love to meet her.”
