Glee’s Darren Criss Does His Best Ian Somerhalder “Smolder” Impression
If you thought Chord Overstreet (Sam Evans) is the only Glee cast member who can be counted on for an impeccable impression, think again! Darren Criss (Blaine) showed off all facets of his talents while hosting the Teen Choice Awards this week, including an impressive impression of a fellow smokin’ hot TV hunk.
The replay-worthy moment came when D-Criss announced The Vampire Diariesstar Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) as a presenter at the awards show. Just before Ian took to the podium, Darren did a killer impression of Ian’s famous smolder, referring to Ian as “the Smolder-Holder himself.” Who doesn’t love a cute guy who also has a way with words?
So what do you think of Darren’s impersonation? If you ask us, the look is right on, complete with the squinty eyes and puckered lips. Now we just need Ryan Murphy to somehow write this facial expression into an upcoming Glee episode. Glee meets the Salvatore brothers — what’s not to like?
Overall Gleehad a huge night, winning four Teen Choice 2013 Awards, as didVampire Diaries. Ian took home the award for Choice TV Actor Fantasy/Sci-Fi — which should come as no huge surprise, as this is his third straight win in that category. And his co-star Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) won the female equivalent of the category this year. Dobrevhalder forever!
