Yes, Darren Criss from ‘Glee’ is Half Filipino

Fans of Glee are still all a twitter about the show’s latest heartthrob addition: Darren Criss.

Last week the relatively unknown pop star/actor became known. He made us swoon as Blaine, Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) potential love interest and mentor. As a friendly member of a rival glee club, we were all giddy like school girls as he and his homeboys performed a rendition of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.” He added a new dynamic to a show that has become musically gratuitous and droning.

The added bonus? The boy is half Filipino (confirmed on his Twitter account). Therefore, all fellow Filipinos have a moral obligation to like him and claim him as one of our own. So every time someone says his name we can immediately interject the phrase, “HE’S HALF FILIPINO!” into the conversation. Shameless Hulu embed of him singing, after the jump!

Ain’t he dreamy?
