On Saturday, Oct. 22, 'Glee' star Darren Criss, YouTube sensation Rebecca Black, piano prodigy Greyson Chance, and Disney actress/singer Debby Ryan all attended Variety's 5th Annual Power of Youth Event. The Variety event, which was held at the Hub at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, celebrates "top young talent and their dedication to philanthropic and humanitarian causes closest to their hearts, while encouraging the industry and their fans around the world to get involved and give back."

Much like his co-stars Chris Colfer and Kevin McHale, 'Glee' famer Darren Criss is an avid supporter of the Trevor Project, which aims to help LGBTQ youth by providing a safe place for them to turn when they're struggling. Criss insists that his "decision" to jump on board was an easy one -- he feels honored to be able to help a group that he respects so much.
Since joining 'Glee' as the head Warbler Blaine -- who is now a McKinley High Titan -- Darren Criss has been catapulted into mega-stardom. In a new interview with Billboard, the 24-year-old actor/musician dished on where Kurt and Blaine are headed this season, his feature film debut alongside Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening and what's up with his solo record.
It might be Broadway or bust for 'Glee' star Darren Criss. According to EW, Criss, who plays gay heartthrob Blaine Anderson on the show, is currently in discussions to take over for Harry Potter, aka actor Daniel Radcliffe, in the Broadway revival of the musical 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.'
Darren Criss is a seasoned Comic-Con goer, so it's no surprise that he was happily available to offer his two cents on the event. The Hollywood Reporter caught up with the 'Glee' familiar face, aka Blaine, who opened up about going from a convention attendee to a panelist. Criss also took the time to share his thoughts on 'Glee' Season 3.
