HEDWIG's Darren Criss Joins Indie Film SMITTEN!
Heartthrob Darren Criss is headed from Broadway to the big screen in the upcoming indie romantic comedy film SMITTEN!
The Hollywood Reporter writes that the GLEE star will appear in RAIN MAN writer Barry Morrow's directorial debut.
SMITTEN!, with a script by Morrow, is described as "an enchanted fable, a caper with four romances, centering around a young American fashion executive (Criss) who gets kidnapped and taken into the alpine mountains by three bumbling members of the mafia."
Criss will join Madalina Ghenea and Angela Molina in the cast.
Filming starts next week in Italy.
Criss, who is currently starring on Broadway in HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, is well known for his role as 'Blaine Anderson' in Fox's musical comedy series GLEE. He just received an Emmy nomination for his original song "Dreams Come True / Song Title: This Time." The actor also appeared in Broadway's HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING in 2012.
