If it were up to us, we’d declare February 5 to be a national holiday. Because February 5 is the day Darren Criss (Blaine) first entered the world... 27 years ago. That’s right. Our favorite bowtie-sporting Glee actor turns 27 today, and his co-stars have been taking to Twitter all day to send their congrats.

To celebrate... he’s hard at work on the Glee set. Based on cast tweets, we’d venture to guess that he, Kevin McHale (Artie), Chord Overstreet (Sam) and Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) are filming their slowed-down, ballad rendition of the original Glee song “Loser Like Me,” which first appeared in Season 2, Episode 16: “Original Song.”

This time around, the tune is showing up in Season 5, Episode 13: "New Directions," also known as part two of the special two-part 100th episode.

Darren made sure to thank everyone for their well wishes.
