JLo Bye Bye Birdie Casting Scouting Report: Darren Criss

JLo Bye Bye Birdie Casting Scouting Report: Darren Criss

Conrad Birdie may not be the lead role in NBC’s upcoming ‘Bye Bye Birdie Live!’, but it is the central role around which all the other drama takes place.

One option producers Jennifer Lopez, Craig Zadan, and Neil Meron may want to give thought to is Darren Criss.

Criss is most famous for playing Blaine Anderson in the FOX series ‘Glee’. He has also starred on Broadway in ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying’ and most recently in ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch.’ He made his feature film debut in the comedy ‘Girl Most Likely.”

Although a little on the short side, Criss has the dark looks of a Conrad Birdie, thanks to a mother from the Philippines and a father of English, German, and Irish decent.

He is a talented singer, dancer, and actor – the kind of true triple threat that could breathe life into the role of Conrad Birdie.
