Gigantic news, Gleeks. When Daniel Radcliffe leaves his Broadway run of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in January, a familiar face might be replacing him: Darren Criss!

Deadline reports that Criss is in talks to replace Radcliffe in the iconic role for a three-week stint in the new year. Criss would need two weeks of rehearsal time before the show started, and if you think his bosses on Glee are upset, think again. Ryan Murphy actually gave his blessing, and Darren wouldn’t need to miss more than an episode and a half.

Meanwhile, Darren’s also in talks for the movie Imogene with Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening. It would be his first film role and will shoot later this summer.

Looks like Darren Criss has taken the lead on “Which Glee star will be most famous?”
