Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini discuss "Girl Most Likely"
- Shari Springer Berman: The part of Lee, played by Darren Criss, that was hard [to cast] because it was scripted that he is a Backstreet Boy impersonator. It had to be someone who could get up and dance. And he has to be a romantic interest, but it is scripted that he is much younger than her so there has to be a connection but it also has to feel a little weird for them to be together. It was hard to find the right person. Bob thought we should look at the people on "Glee," and he went online and found this interview Darren did with Rolling Stone, where he sang all the answers to the questions. He was like, "Shari, come here and look at this! There's something special with this guy."
- Robert Pulcini: He was just sitting there with his guitar singing the answer to every question. It was really charming and funny and I thought, "he really has the light touch that would be very good. He doesn't take himself too seriously and that would be really good for Kristen's character, who takes herself very seriously."
