Darren Criss is a true Renaissance man — he sings, he acts, he dances, he writes songs (like Lea Michele's last solo on "Glee") and he happens to be a really nice guy.

Criss came to chat with Kathie Lee & Hoda on Wednesday about his starring role on Broadway in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” a coveted position once held by the likes of Neil Patrick Harris and "Girls" star Andrew Rannells. Taye Diggs will step into the star-studded heels in July.

We caught up with Criss as he was leaving the studio to talk about getting his nails painted for work, filming the last episodes of “Glee” and writing songs about wine and coffee.

Come back any time, Darren!
