MTV caught up with Glee stars Darren Criss, Jenna Ushkowitz and Kevin McHale during this year's San Diego Comic Con. They asked Darren's thoughts were on the fancasting of him for the Brooklyn High Warlock, Magnus Bane.
The fans do really love Darren for this role, but obviously he doesn't seem to be in the running. What about Harry Shum? What are your thoughts on this interview? Sound off below in our comments.“Oh, I have heard that,” Darren said. “I really thought Harry Shum would be good for that. I mean, that’s cool. It’s a funky part. That’d be really fun, but I don’t think they’d let me do that.”
When pressed as to why he wouldn’t be allowed to portray the beloved character, Darren gave an answer we totally don’t agree with. “I don’t think I’m cool enough for that,” he said.
To their credit, Darren’s co-stars both disagreed, with Kevin offering up an intriguing (though not entirely realistic) solution: “You and Harry can just split the part like twins,” he said. To which Darren looked straight into the camera and delivered this final comment: “Cast me!”
