Darren Walsh was a minor character in the first book, the online version and film. He was apparently the "creator" of the cheese touch, after touching the moldy cheese with his finger. The kids start to run away in the movie, while Darren is doubting falsely that he says that he didn't touch it and lies. He then passes the Cheese Touch to another person, which gets passed on to another and another. He was seen on 198th position on the popularity list in the movie, this is quite logical as he was the starter of cheese touch.
In the movie, Darren has short, brown hair with brown eyes. He shows up in a flashback after Chirag tells the boys about the cheese touch and how it started. "One day, Darren touched the cheese". His finger enters the frame and hits the squishy cheese. Everyone else is always running way from him, Darren lies and cries claiming he never touched it. But he manages to pass it on to a girl in order to get rid of it for good.
In the book, he has a simplistic cartoon look like everybody else with four little strands of hair popping from his back and black shirt and white shorts.
Darren Walsh had the same role in this version, the only difference was that his name was Darnell Washington, it is unknown if he was Mr. Washington's son in the online version.
