A breakout star from "Glee" has a plum role in his sights as Daniel Radcliffe’s replacement in the new staging of "How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying," reports Deadline.com.

The deal has not yet been made for Darren Criss to take on the role, with talks set to begin as soon as “Glee’s” principals give the OK.

Radcliffe, who stars in the “Harry Potter” movies, ends his run in the production in January before heading back to feature film work.

The part comes with a three-week commitment, which would give Criss a chance to shine before returning to Fox for season three of "Glee." The appearance would mark the Broadway debut for Criss.

Criss would take over for Radcliffe from Jan. 3-22, following a two week rehearsal period in December. He would miss less than two episodes of "Glee."

Fortunately for Criss, "Glee" co-creator Ryan Murphy appears to be encouraging him to take the Broadway gig.
