Glee's Darren Criss turned down The X Factor hosting gig

  • 15/03/2012

Glee star Darren Criss has reportedly turned down the chance to host TV talent show The X Factor in America - because he's too busy.

The actor, who took over from Daniel Radcliffe in Broadway hit How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying at the beginning of the year, was recently offered the chance to take over from Welshman Steve Jones and front Simon Cowell's singing contest.

A source tells, "They (show producers) were after him, but there's no way he could have done it with everything he has going on."

Reps for the show and Criss have yet to comment on the story.
