Criss made his 'Glee' debut last November as Blaine Anderson, the openly gay student from a rival school's glee club. And now the 24-year-old crooner has signed a record deal with Sony music executives to record his debut studio album. If Criss' sexy renditions of Destiny's Child's 'Bills, Bills, Bills' or Robin Thicke's 'When I Get You Alone' are any indication, his solo debut will be hotter than hot.
"We're working on it - we're really excited and it's something I've been wanting to do for a long time. I'm so thrilled that it's something that can happen because of 'Glee'," Criss told Billboard. "I hope I can do it justice and make it something that people can really enjoy," the Billboard cover boy adds.
Criss and Morrison are not the only 'Glee' stars working on solo careers -- 28-year-old Mark Salling, who plays mohawked-bad-boy Noah "Puck" Puckerman, has already released two studio albums of his own since 2008.
'Glee' returns from its hiatus with its 'Night of Neglect' episode tomorrow night, April 19 on FOX at 8/7c.
