Bret Easton Ellis' Downers Grove Will Feature Glee's Darren Criss

Bret Easton Ellis, who uses Twitter to air opinions like, "[Glee makes me feel] like I've stepped into a puddle of HIV," is coming face to face with the puddle itself: Glee's Darren Criss has apparently signed on for a supporting role in Downers Grove, costarring Lucy Hale and Hayden Panettiere, which Ellis is adapting. Said Ellis on Twitter, "Whatever my problems with Glee have nothing to do with the incredibly talented cast itself. Have tastelessly bashed the show not the actors." Still, a minor LOL is in order.

    Wow. A bad writer who spends most of his life with his head up his own ass suddenly changes his (muffled) tune when someone he bashes is stupid enough to star in yet another of his movies that will make $10 if he's lucky? I'm gonna pass. I'm not a big fan of Glee, but I'm also not so fucking infantile that I tear down people or shows that I don't like simply because I don't like them.
    And yes, I know using the f-word means my comment won't post for a day or two, if it ever posts. But ignorant assholes like him deserve the f-word.
    Glee is a sucky show with the worst continuity of any show I've ever seen. But a lot of people love it and learn from it and enjoy it wholeheartedly. And anyone who thinks they should dictate what everyone should like and what they shouldn't is just as bad as these activists who think the definition of marriage and the meaning of humanity should only be what they allow it to be.
    In for a penny, in for a pound. Fuck them. Bret, do the world a favor and stick your head back up your ass. That way, even if you do say yet another asinine thing, at least the sound will be muffled.

    You know you're excited about this movie, Louis. It's the most exciting thing to happen to southwest suburban Chicago since "Straight Talk"!

    I love Ellis's work and I used to follower him on twitter but he got a bit too pretentious for me. Not the Glee stuff, just in general.

    We should hold Ellis down and slap him silly. I hate reading his twitter, all he talks about is HIV and how he's in love with a male prostitute.
