Glee

Darren Criss is wasting no time this summer. While most of his Glee classmate cast mates are taking a break, Darren has so many irons in the fire that he may feel like he attended summer school.

So, what's up? Well, he's jumping into his first headlining tour, visiting 16 cities in North America. The Listen Up tour kicks off May 29 in Darren's hometown of San Francisco and runs through June 30, ending in Silver Spring, Md. And if you don't have tickets by now, chances are you won't get one. They completely sold out within minutes on April 27. (But, hey, isn't that what Craigslist and Stubhub are for?)

On tour, Darren will be "road-testing" new material from his forthcoming album. A total overachiever, he's working on an album slated to drop sometime later this year. As to the vibe and feel of his new album, well Darren wants fans' input. He's hoping to gauge the audience's reaction to his new tunes while on his Listen Up tour. Recently, he told MTV News, "It's really trying to make something as appealing for everybody, that is fun and exciting and young and immediate."

On the acting front, Darren is taking a big bold step forward, co-starring in Kristen Wiig's new summer comedy, Girl Most Likely. In the film (due out July 19), Darren plays a fledgling pop star who rents Kristen's childhood bedroom. Trouble ensues when Kristen returns home to live with her mother after failing as an adult and finds Darren sleeping in her room. And yes, it seems from the trailer that the two hook up. Check it out and decide for yourself:

Last month, we reported that Glee would be getting its very own video game for the Nintendo Wii called 'Karaoke Revolution Glee.' Now we've got the scoop on all of the sing-along action coming at you this fall!

If you've ever played 'Karaoke Revolution,' you know the drill. Players get to lay their vocals over instrumentals while the lyrics and pitch are displayed on the screen. But this time around, the popular video game series is getting a New Directions makeover that is totally Kurt-approved.

Fans of the hit Fox series will get to choose from over 35 of the cast's epic numbers while real scenes from the show are playing in the background. You'll can sing solo or rock out harmonies with your friends using the multi-player option. (We bet Rachel would do anything to have 'Karaoke Revolution Glee' as a training tool.) Ready for the best part? There's a special game mode that lets gamers unlock sweet Season One content!

There's no set release date for the game, but it will hopefully be in time for the brand-new season of Glee, which premieres on September 21. We know it seems like a long time to wait, Gleeks, but it will be soooo worth it.

Hang on to your wallets, Gleeks. Beginning this fall, there will be tons of Glee-inspired products to add to your wish lists, including video games, electronics, greeting cards, accessories and more.

As we previously reported, a Glee clothing line and original book series is in the works, but on Thursday, Fox hit the Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas to unveil their plans for a full range of items. Some of the highlights include: a sing-a-long video game called 'Karaoke Revolution Glee' for the Nintendo Wii; a Glee karaoke machine; and a Glee boom box.

Hallmark is also getting down with the New Directions crew and launching a line of funny greeting cards, which will include sound. There are so many amazing one-liners from the show that we're sure these will be hilarious.

In addition to the t-shirts, sleepwear and apparel collections that will be available at various store chains, Claire's will debut an exclusive Glee jewelry line in September. (They did the same thing last year around the release of Fame.)
