As we predicted, despite the rumours Neil Patrick Harris has NOT been cast as the villain the Music Meister in the musical crossover between The Flash and Supergirl. Instead the role has gone to Darren Criss – the voice of Sideswipe in Transformers: Robots In Disguise, who doesn’t sing much as far as we’re aware.
But Criss was also in Glee, where he was part of the same a cappella group in which none other than Grant Gustin performed.
“With our Flash and our Supergirl being Glee alums, how could we not have them go up against another Glee favorite like Darren Criss?” says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “We have been blown away by his talent over the years and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the Music Meister.”
The Music Master actually debuted in an episode of the animated series Batman: The Brave And The Bold, where he was voiced by Neil Patrick Harris. Hence the rumours. Because people are like that. [via TV Line]
