If you're hoping that Kurt and Blaine find true love on Glee, you're not the only one. The newest addition to the show, Darren Criss, is also keeping his fingers crossed. "Chris [Colfer] and I, we both are equally curious to see what happens to our two characters," Criss said at the 2010 AMAs on November 21. "If it does evolve into a romantic relationship, I hope that it's organic and earnest and I hope that we earn it."

Criss says he feels a great sense of responsibility in portraying a gay character on television, especially at a time when bullying has turned deadly.  "When you're dealing with such a large topic like gay youth, you have to take it a level at a time and the most important thing right now, to convey, is that of a support system," he says. "I think Blaine is a really great character and I think he's a really wonderful presence to have on network television."

He won't say whether or not Blaine will become a regular on the show, but odds are pretty good that we'll be seeing more of Criss in the future. "That's what people keep telling me, but it's never been made official," says Criss. "I think that there is a lot to Blaine and I feel there is a lot of potential for him as a character. It's all in the writers' hands. Even if Blaine got hit by a bus in subsequent episodes, I'd be thankful for the time I've been given."
