There is no doubt that Glee’s breakthrough star Darren Criss has that x factor, but that doesn’t mean he’s willing to join The X Factor.
E! Online is reporting that the singer-actor was offered a hosting gig on Simon Cowell’s singing competition show. While most people are paying attention to who the new judges will be, most have forgotten that the firing of Steve Jones’ has left the host position wide open.
An X Factor insider said they were really going after Criss but he had no choice but to turn down the job. Darren’s schedule is clearly booked solid filming scenes, learning choreography and recording songs on behalf of the juggernaut that is Glee.
In addition to his role on Glee, Darren earned strong reviews for his role in How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying earlier this year.
Well — at least we still have the possibility of Britney Spears joining the show as a judge. Tweet us @stereotude to let us know who you think would make a good host for season 2 of X Factor.
