Darren Criss: 'Glee' bully Karofsky is hilarious

He may bully Kurt and Blaine on "Glee," but in real life, Karofsky (Max Adler) is just a big old softie.

"Any time I have a scene with Max I can't keep a straight face," Darren Criss, who plays Dalton Academy Warbler Blaine, tells Vulture. "It's impossible."

But Adler isn't the only cutup on set. Criss says that Dot Jones, who plays the imposing Coach Beiste, is also a laugh riot.

"So that's Coach Beiste or Karofsky," he says. "They crack me up."

But it's not all play, no work for Criss. Besides gearing up for "Glee's" upcoming concert tour, he will also be doing some writing and composing for his Chicago theater company, and possibly promoting his own record during the show's summer hiatus.

"I don't take breaks," he says. "I was a musician before 'Glee,' and 'Glee' has kind of made that career take a backseat, so I'll maybe tour around my record that came out back in July."

One of the most searched for type of p0rn on the internet is Fat People. Look it up. There are worse things then two guys making out, two fatties... that's worse.

    Sunshine Girl in this day and age one would think that a simple kiss between two people wouldnt be such an issue that it would turn you off a show that you previously watched. You had to have seen it coming its been building all season what did you think they were just going to skip that part? I think this show has done a great job at dealing with issues that are problems for highschool students albeit not all that realistically through song but still.

      Sunshine I'm guessing you must be around 80 yrs old based upon your comment. Blaine was right when he said in the 1st episode of Glee he was on; 'prejudice is just ignorance'. Frankly I would love to see Blaine and the Warblers get their own show, and Kurt can go back and forth between the 2 shows! They are all awesome, entire cast of Glee; and Kurt and Blaine are my favorites, I hope they stay together forever! Alot more kissing, singing and dancing I say!!

      You can't spell, and your comment would indicate you are a bully. Both actors are amazing. And I hardly think that the man playing Karovsky is 'fat', and Dot Jones looks very fit to me. Go away, nasty troll.
