Jane Lynch (Sue) began hosting Hollywood Game Night in 2013, and since then, she’s recruited quite a few of her Glee co-stars to appear on the celeb-filled show. Matthew Morrison (Mr. Schuester) has stopped by once, as has Chris Colfer (Kurt), and now a third familiar Glee face will be getting in on the action as well.
Several weeks ago we told you Darren Criss (Blaine) filmed an episode of HGN and now we have even more information regarding his upcoming stint on the show. TVLine reports Darren’s episode of Hollywood Game Night is scheduled to air on June 5 at 9 p.m. ET.
The site also lists the other stars who we’ll get to see make fools of themselves play some games during Darren’s hour, and it’s a pretty impressive list! The Office’s Jenna Fischer will be playing along, as will Extra host Mario Lopez and Orange Is the New Black cast members Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, and Natasha Lyonne. We don’t know the exact teams just yet, but we’re holding out hope that Darren will be on a team with Laura and Natasha. Either way we can’t wait for the fun and games to begin!
TVLine also reports that Matthew Morrison will be appearing on his second episode of the show before Season 2 wraps up, but an exact air date for Matt’s sophomore installment hasn’t been announced.
Here’s some food for thought: If Jane was able to wrangle three OITNB cast members on the couches then surely she could get more than one Glee star to come on at once. The FOX dramedy is on hiatus until 2015, so clearly the cast has time for a Game Night face-off, no?
Are you excited to see Darren on HGN? Should the Glee cast face off on an episode of their own? Vote below!
