Darren Criss Made Out With a Gay Porn Star and Didn’t Even Know It (Video)

When Darren Criss starred in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, he would pick one lucky male member from the audience to smooch. Well one time, he picked someone he thought was conservative only to find out later the object of his affection was actually a famous gay porn star.

We wish we were there!

During a recent appearance on Conan, Darren Criss chatted about the moment:

I would tend to pick the people who I assumed didn’t know what was going on for the comedy—for myself and for everybody else watching the show. I would try and target the most conservative looking straight boys because that’s just more fun. I remember going for this one dude… who I basically roughed up quite a bit. He had make-up on him and everything. All up and everywhere that I could possible reach in the span of time that I had. The guy just had lipstick and glitter all over him.

Afterwards, he came backstage with somebody who knew someone else from the show. He was a good sport about it and seemed very gentile and ho-hum about it and was like, “That was crazy!” I was pleased with myself for giving a rollicking good time to a conservative young man. A couple came in afterwards and was like, “Do you know who that was?! That’s our favorite gay porn star!”

So this guy was putting on airs. He’s clearly seen much more than I ever have. Shout out to that young man. Apparently he’s very well-liked and if I was going to do that, I only went for the best.

We’re bummed that Criss doesn’t know who the gay porn star was. We’re thinking maybe Colby Keller? Who do you think?
