such a bummer that people have to be negative little assholes because Darren will be a part of another Ryan Murphy production. can't we all just be stoked that he's going to exercise those killer (no pun intended) acting chops!? 🙌🏼 people gotta let this dude live his life and stop judging (and speculating) his every move.

I do get where some of the hesitation is coming from — this is a Murphy  production —the dude has burned many a bridge with many a person… so I get it. But I’m a fan of DARRENS. I’m a fan of him and his craft, so I’m choosing to focus on him and nothing else. You’ll only get support and love from me.

I am so ecstatic and pumped for him! This is big, man. This is a brilliant career move. This is going to take him out of  the “song and dance” cutesy pigeonholed and really show his skills. Show that he’s not just a box, that there are more than four sides to him. Not many people can pull off this type of role and make it believable  (they aren’t joking when they say this type of role is the hardest to do) but I think he can, and I can’t wait to watch it happen!!!

And what really adds to all of this, is the fact that he’s joining  a platform that has already generated buzz, awards, and media coverage — that’s a smart as hell move.  Brilliant move to originate a character on a show that already has a strong following — that in the end will no doubt boost him and open some doors. 

I’m incredibly stoked for him and can’t wait to watch his career grow even more. 💛
