This year’s Sexiest Man Alive winner may be seen as an upset for some of you, but that doesn’t stop the mag from housing pages and pages of other sexy man for us to oogle and oggle over. One of those men is Glee scene stealer, Darren Criss. There is no doubt that Criss is sexy, but wait until you see this little behind-the-scenes footage of Darren’s photo shoot for People mag Sexiest Man issue.

Going for a little dip in his denim with no shirt on (swoon), Darren has landed on People’s Men of the Year list. During the little interview with E! discussing the shoot, he also spills on his crush worthy co-star, Dianna Agron. He even goes as far to call them kindred spirits but admits that he doesn’t think he’s on her level.

Well for what it’s worth Darren, we think you are on our level and we’re looking forward to seeing more from you in the future. I hope that Glee is only the launch pad for a very long and prosperous career. Once Darren leaves Glee behind, I think he could become the next breakout star like how Zac Efron left Disney behind and became one of Hollywood’s hottest commodities. Check out Darren’s shoot with People below.
