'Glee's' Darren Criss is set to replace
Daniel Radcliffe in the Broadway musical How to Succeed in
Business Without Really Trying.
On Wednesday, producers released a new
poster for the play featuring Criss sporting a light gray suit and
purple bow tie.
Criss, who is best known for playing
out-and-proud Blaine Anderson on the Fox musical-comedy Glee,
will play corporate ladder-climbing J. Pierrepont Finch during a
three-week stint after Radcliffe exits the role in January. The
production also stars Tony-winner John Laroquette in the role of J.B.
Biggley and Tammy Blanchard as Hedy La Rue.
Criss is expected to miss an episode
and a half of season three of Glee to make his Broadway debut.
The 24-year-old Criss was recently
named one of the sexiest men of the year by PEOPLE magazine.
Before Glee success, Criss
garnered attention starring in the Harry Potter parody A Very
Potter Musical, which he co-wrote while attending the University
of Michigan in 2009. So, following in Radcliffe's footsteps is
becoming a bit of a habit for Criss.
