How Strange
Darren Criss opens up about fans licking his face.
Besides the phenomenal covers on Glee, the list of guest stars often ends up being the most exciting part of the show.

We’ve been graced with the presence of brilliant celebrities such as, Idina Menzel, Ricky Martin, and Kristin Chenoweth.

With so many talented people in Hollywood, it’s difficult to eliminate people to have just one or two options. You may be surprised by who is going to influence Darren Criss on set.

The star is none other than Shirley MacLaine. TV Line learned exclusively of her upcoming multi-episode arc. What her role entails is especially intriguing.

It has been reported that she will “portray a powerful New York socialite intent on turning recent Big Apple transplant Blaine into a superstar.” Ooh, looks like Rachel Berry might have some competition when it comes to star power.

To be honest, I’m genuinely hoping her character has some really exciting, aristocratic name that reflects her status in New York. Any ideas of a name you would like her character to have?

Later this month she will make her anticipated performance and I cannot wait to see what songs she and Criss end up performing together!

What are your thoughts on MacLaine being the newest addition to the show? Let us know in the comments below!
