GLEE breakout star and Broadway headliner Darren Criss opens up about the finer points of his character of the hit FOX musical dramedy series as part of an ongoing social media fan Q&A.
Asked to share specifics about the somewhat unusual way in which his character on GLEE, Blaine, claps while appearing on the series, Criss shares a detailed description of the thought and effort put into even the seemingly innocuous background character quirks imbued into his performance on the show.
Criss writes, “That’s a really great question. I do a lot of stupid stuff in character that I don’t think anyone ever notices, or even NEEDS to notice for that matter-so the fact you DID notice opens up a mini pandora’s box of a response. I’m very careful to do certain things as Blaine. And since I started doing said things almost four years ago, I’ve been very careful to maintain all of them ever since… like sticking to certain mannerisms in certain situations, keeping certain facial expressions, and, yeah, clapping in a particular way. It’s just kinda one of those silly actor things that despite itself, whether successful or not, has helped me stay in character.”
Additionally, Criss shares, “This one time I was watching an episode at home, I caught a quick shot of Blaine NOT clapping “a la Blaine” … and I was so mad at myself! I didn’t understand how that could’ve possibly happened. And I wondered if anyone would notice and call me out. I realized it must have been from ONE take I thought the camera WASN’T covering me, and so I was out of character. But that’s all it takes. One take. I was so upset. Big lesson there: sometimes you can never really know when the camera is on you and more importantly- you have no control over what is gonna make it into the final cut… So the lesson is painfully plain & simple- from “action” to “cut,” always be in character. Like, DUHHH right? Rookie mistake! Sigh, it’s not like that shot is solidified in TV Land forever or anything… oh wait. Dammit.”

As the Transformers brand comes up on its 30th anniversary, family entertainment channel the Hub Network has announced that it is currently in production on a new animated series based on the famous Hasbro action figures.
TV PILOTS/DEVELOPMENT SCORECARD: Follow all of the development action during upfront season
While Transformers has already made its mark on the big screen in the eponymous blockbuster film franchise, the new series will take place years after the battle between Autobots and Decepticons in “Transformers Prime” and centers on hero Bumblebee (voiced by “Boy Meets World’s” Will Friedle) as he steps up to lead a brand new team of Autobots. The program will blend 3D characters with hand-painted environments and mixes action-packed adventure with comedy.
The series, set to debut in early 2015, is being produced by Hasbro Studios and exec produced by Jeff Kline (“Transformers Prime,” “G.I. Joe Renegades”). The cast also includes “Glee” star Darren Criss, Constance Zimmer (“House of Cards”) and Ted McGinley (“Married with Children”).
Hub Network is a joint venture between Discovery Communications and Hasbro Inc. and will be celebrating the success of the Transformers franchise with other special events to be announced later this year.
