was recently promoted
to a 'Glee
' series regular, but he may have another amazing job lined up for next year. The 24-year-old is reportedly in talks to replace Daniel Radcliffe
as the lead in the Broadway musical 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.'
According to Deadline
, if all goes as planned, the actor/singer will take on the role of J. Pierrepont Finch from January 3 through January 22. The three-week stint and two weeks of rehearsals would cause him to miss shooting an episode and a half of 'Glee,' though.
If the deal goes through, it'll be interesting to see the California native succeed the 'Harry Potter
' star, especially since Darren first made a splash with 'A Very Potter Musical,' for which he wrote all the music and lyrics.
'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying' has been a Broadway hit, grossing over a $1 million per week, thanks in part to Daniel. Darren has some big shoes to fill, but we think he'd be perfect for the job.
Do you think Darren would make a good J. Pierrepont Finch? Let us know what you think in the comments.
