Darren Criss Offers Glimpse at 'Glee' Beefcake Calendar: VIDEO


Gllee creator Ryan Murphy tweeted the above photo of a waxed up Darren Criss brandishing a candy cane as the preview for a "Men of McKinley" calendar which he says will be "coming soon". Gleefcake?

See the full shot along with a clip from a recent charity Christmas concert Criss performed in New York's Meatpacking district, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I normally hate when people chime in with "Photoshopped!" but this is obviously a joke from Ryan Murphy, until I hear otherwise from Criss.

  4. His body is perfect. I don't find inflated-by-steroid muscle types attractive at all.

  5. "Ummmm....that's "beefcake?"

    With the lack of body hair, I'd say more like "vealcake".

  10. Wow, Ryan Murphy has got it bad for this kid. Next season he's going to rename Glee as The Darren Criss Show. Was smart of Criss to hit the casting couch in the first season.

  12. Well, they certainly have enough attractive men in the cast to put a calendar together...but I'd love it if Max Adler gets a month!

  14. I guess Darren Criss is old enough to know he's being used as a sexual plaything for Ryan Murphy but it doesn't make it any less awkward for the rest of us to watch. You almost feel sorry for him, but if you want to be on TV bad enough I guess you'll do what it takes.

  15. These men, regardless of their age in real life, play teenagers, underage teenagers. So if the calendar is real and I buy one, am I at risk of trafficking in child pornography!?

  16. Why did they shave his chest??? WHY?????

  17. @Chas,
    Pls provide the basis for ur tall claim that Darren was sleeping w/ RM!

  18. He's cute.

    Posted by: Miguel | Dec 18, 2012 12:59:05 PM

  19. He's hot but everytime he shaves his chest he ends up looking underage. Ugh! Stop it! Chest hair makes you look like a man, Darren. Embrace it!!

  20. I am a Darren Criss fan. He's actually a very talented guy. A first-rate songwriter, actor, dancer, and plays guitar, piano, drums, and violin.
    But I think the calendar picture is cheesy - even if it's meant intentionally.

  21. Put your clothes back on, honey.

  22. @ iban4yesu
    Darren Criss and Ryan Murphy are widely believed to be the people behind this blind item:

  23. He is only 4ft tall - he should have a WAY better body than that ! It's easy to have a great body when you are short.

  24. @James, that has to be the silliest thing I've seen in the comments on here in a while.

    He's cute. He's talented. What's not to like?

    Posted by: SoLeftImRight | Dec 18, 2012 3:09:41 PM

  25. Stop shaving your chest, Darren!
