Criss is Filipino

Days before the GlobesDarren Criss talked about how he will no longer play gay roles.  “I want to make sure I won’t be another straight boy taking a gay man’s role,” says the 31-year-old.  However, fellow Golden Globe winner Ben Whishaw said, “I think there needs to be greater equality.  I would like to see more gay actors playing straight roles.”  So, riddle me this – if gay actors are playing the gay roles AND the straight roles, what on Earth will Darren Criss do for a living?  On second thought, don’t answer that.

Am I the only one who didn’t know Darren is Filipino?  He proclaimed himself the first Filipino-American to win a Golden Globe.  Is that true?  Has someone done genetic testing on all previous winners?  Are the Golden Globes in bed with  Perhaps, like gays, Criss is the first OPENLY Filipino-American to win a Golden Globe.  Turns out Andrew Cunanan was Filipino-American, so maybe it’s a win/win.  But I’ll have to run this by Whishaw.
