Darren Criss

Looks like Glee's Kurt has a new boyfriend.

Singer-actor Darren Criss has joined the Fox hit as a new gay student named Blaine, a source close to the show tells TVGuide.com. Blaine hails from a rival glee club called the Dalton Academy Warblers and will befriend Kurt (Chris Colfer).

While Fox has yet to comment, the source says that Blaine will become Kurt's boyfriend later this season. Creator Ryan Murphy previously announced plans to introduce a love interest for Kurt this year.

Entertainment Weekly first reported Criss' casting.
