Darren Criss Stays Mum on 'Glee' Finale, Geoff Stults Gives Hugs & More From Fox's Upfront Party

Michael Clarke Duncan, Geoff Stults, The Finder, FoxNo matter how much you ask, Darren Criss won't tell you anything about the 'Glee' finale.

Despite the number of times AOL TV pressed him for intel at tonight's Fox Upfront party, he wouldn't spill any details. Of course, that could be because he isn't actually in the episode. He was in New York when the cast visited a few weeks ago to film, so that could've caused some confusion.

"I was here when they were shooting so I just went to say hi," he told us.

Though Criss was spiffed up in a suit when we chatted, earlier he had joined the Dalton Warblers in donning one of those ubiquitous red-piped blazers to sing 'Hey Soul Sister' at Fox's presentation today. Naturally, that led to the most hard-hitting Warbler-related question of them all: How often do those blazers get washed?

"Oh, never!" he joked (we think).

Elsewhere at the party, we waited patiently to chat with 'New Girl' star Zooey Deschanel -- who was wearing an adorable pink dress, by the way -- but the newly minted TV star was too mobbed by picture-seekers to move very far through the crowd before being whisked away by her handlers.

On the other hand, Geoff Stults and Michael Clarke Duncan of 'The Finder' were ultra-accessible, happily chatting and taking photos with fans long after the rest of the Fox talent had left.

Stults' handsomeness (and propensity to give awesome though unsolicited hugs) was distracting, but we did get a chance to ask how he felt about being pushed back to midseason.

He wasn't too concerned. It doesn't matter when the show debuts, he said, as long as it makes it to the airwaves. Plus, that coveted post-'Idol' slot isn't too shabby.

"We have a show; we're on after 'American Idol,'" he enthused. "I'm psyched."
