The young actor is fairly new to the small screen, starring in a number of episodes of the ABC show Eastwick.

Sources tell E! Darren will play the role of Blaine, "a gay student from a rival school glee club named the Darlton Dalton Academy Warblers."

Other buzz surrounding the hit Fox musical show had fans guessing Kurt would end up with quarterback and new glee club member Sam Evans, played by Chord Overstreet.
