Doesn’t it seem like all the cute actors on TV and in movies aren’t as tall as you think they are? So we couldn’t help but wonder if the same is true of Glee’s Darren Criss (Blaine).

As it turns out, Darren’s height indeed might surprise you. During a SAG panel last year, Darren was asked how tall he is, to which he answered, “I’m 5’8”.”

Whoa! He’s a bit shorter than he looks, right? He’s indeed shorter than many of his fellow Glee co-stars. Chris Colfer (Kurt) is 5’10”, and Chord Overstreet (Sam) — who is the VP to Blaine’s student body president (hottest running mates ever!) — is 6’.

And of course no one on the Glee cast measures up to Cory Monteith (Finn), who stands at a towering 6’3”. No wonder he’s earned the nickname of “Frankenteen.”

Then again, Darren’s height doesn’t at all affect how adorable he is!
