PHOTO: Glee creator Ryan Murphy gave us an early present today, when he tweeted this photo with the line “Merry Christmas. Men of McKinley calendar coming soon…”

No complaints, but we thought Darren Criss was fuzzier than that.

    OH HELL NO! That is so airbrushed it doesn’t even look like him! That picture floating around of him at Coachella covered in body pain is the quintessential Darren Criss shirtless photo. Absolutely adorable AND sexy, a dangerous combo.

    Darren Criss’ character is in high school. A pin up calendar like this is kinda creepy.

  • Spike

    Pedo alert!!!

    He needs to keep singing and keep his shirt on, till he’s no longer playing a high school kid or buffs up some.

  • gatrdave

    @Spike: Having an attraction to high school age boys is NOT pedophilia. And I don’t understand the double standard of it being okay if he were buff and played a high school senior but not okay if he’s just lean and plays a high school senior.

    Holy Criss Krinkle! Darren dear, pleeze put some bulk on that Santa suit or wrap up that Warbler yule log.

  • DrakeScott

    @Spike: What @gatrdave said. Even if Darren Criss WEREN’T actually 25 years old playing a high school student, it still wouldn’t be pedophilia (the most over-used hysteria word since “homophobia”), but ephebophilia, which has been defined as “the primary or exclusive adult sexual interest in mid-to-late adolescents, generally ages 15 to 19.”

  • Malibu Eric

    My lack of interest in this air-brushed beyond recognition photo is that he has been waxed beyond belief. Mr. Criss has a sexy hairy chest but maybe that scares the majority of Gleeks. (deep sigh)

  • Spike

    @gatrdave: Nope, nothing wrong with having an attraction to high school boys, if you are in high school.

    Are you in high school? Nope, didn’t think so. Pedo alert!

  • Spike

    @DrakeScott: “….but ephebophilia, which has been defined as “the primary or exclusive adult sexual interest in mid-to-late adolescents, generally ages 15 to 19.”

    WOW, serious Pedo alert! What is it with pedos and their need to give themselves up hence that Predator TV show having no problems getting the pedos to show up for hook ups with 15 to . . . . well, you know, those ephebophilla’s . .

  • GayBacon

    At first I was like,’oh crap, I was a pedo for a minute or two…’ and then I realized he’s older than me. WTF GLEE!?!

  • DrakeScott

    Wait. Soooo… if I’m reading his posts correctly, according to @Spike, expecting people to at least use accurate terminology when they engage in intentionally inflammatory name-calling and wild assumption automatically makes one a “pedo” and “predator,” Got it. (As an aside, though I have voiced no opinion whatsoever regarding Mr. Criss, this whole discussion is especially ludicrous, given the fact that he’s nearly 26 years old.)

  • AEH

    Oh, wow. I knew Ryan Murphy was a control freak, but this is ridiculous. It looks like he had Darren waxed from eyebrows down, if the non-existent treasure trail was any indication.

    Anyway, I’m not sexually attracted to Criss. He is aesthetically pleasing, but ultimately kind of bland. He reminds me of Elvis Presley and there’s a neutered real-life Ken doll if there was ever one.

  • Spike

    @AEH: Waxing him down makes him look more appealing to guys like Dgartradave and rakeScott.
