Darren Criss cast as Music Meister in Supergirl/The Flash musical episode
TVLine brings word that the musical menace, Music Meister, has been cast for the upcoming musical episode of Supergirl and The Flash with Darren Criss set to star in the role. Criss reunites with star Grant Gustin for the episode, both having appeared as characters in the same a cappella group on Glee.
“With our Flash and our Supergirl being Glee alums, how could we not have them go up against another Glee favorite like Darren Criss?” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said. “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.”
Music Meister can’t actually be found in the pages of DC Comics as the character made his debut in the animated series Batman: The Brave and the Bold, where he was voiced by Neil Patrick Harris. The villain is capable of controlling people and forcing them into song and dance.
The crossover episode is set to begin on the Monday, March 20 episode of Supergirl where it will officially kick off at the end of the episode and lead into the Tuesday, March 21 episode of The Flash, appropriately titled “Duet.” Title heroes Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist are confirmed to have singing parts in the episode along with Jesse L. Martin, Victor Garber, John Barrowman, Jeremy Jordan and Carlos Valdes.
Dermott Downs has been tapped to direct the episode, having previously helmed a number of episodes of The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
