Darren Criss Turns Down 'X Factor' Job


'Glee' star says no to reality TV gig, too busy being shirtless

Is there life after Glee?

It might not be time for Darren Criss to find out just yet, but it's not for lack of offers.

E! Online is reporting that the one-time Out cover star was offered a gig hosting the upcoming second season of reality TV show The X Factor after former hosts Steve Jones, Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were canned.

Despite the visibility that might come from working on the Simon Cowell-created music competition show, Criss apparently wasn't interested.

"They were after him," a source told the website. "But there's no way he could have done it with everything he has going on."

In addition to his work on Glee, Criss recently did a stint on Broadway in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying and is filming a movie, Imogen, with Annette Bening and Kristen Wiig.

Also, he posed for a series of pretty incredible shirtless photos for People magazine. Yeah, looks like he's got his plate full.
