Glee Season 5 Spoiler: Get Ready for a Mini Darren Criss!
What’s better than getting to watch Glee star Darren Criss (Blaine)? Answer: Nothing. Absolutely nothing. However, one thing that comes close is the prospect of getting to watch a flashback to his character Blaine’s younger self. In other words, get ready to squeal.
Glee creator Brad Falchuk tweeted a photo of himself with the actor who will be playing Blaine’s boyhood self, and sure enough, the little guy’s rockin’ a bow tie. “Young Blaine and me...or is it young Blaine and I?” Brad cations the adorable pic.
(But while we love Blaine’s new mini-me, but lets be real: No one can top the original Mini Warbler. No one. If only Glee needed to cast someone a few years younger!That kid would have been perfect.)
Back to the upcoming episode, though. Episode 6, scheduled to air on November 21, is shaping up to be an unbelievably adorable one. After all, not only will we meet proto-Blaine, but we’ll also see a younger version of Sam (Chord Overstreet). And the adult actors are clearly enjoying having the little guys around, judging by these tweets:
So what’s up with all the flashbacks? Well, we know that there will be a college dean character in the episode, so we’re guessing we might see the young selves in a flashback during a college interview. But as long as we get cute moments, we don’t really care what the reason is.
