The White Collar star Matt Bomer will be heading to Lima, Ohio (well, at least fictionally) as he prepares for a guest role on FOX’s Glee.
TVLine learned exclusively that Bomer will play the older brother to McKinley High’s second out and proud gay teenager Blaine Anderson portrayed by the How To Succeed in Business star Darren Criss.
No leaks on why the elder Anderson (Matt Bomer) is around but word is that the brothers will be singing a mashup. It turns out that legendary rock band Duran Duran has freed up a few tracks just for the occasion, giving Bomer time to spread his wings as an actor and music man.
Glee is no stranger to celebrity cameos. In the last three years they’ve managed to snag Britney Spears, Kristin Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, John Stamos , Gwyneth Paltrow, Neil Patrick Harris, and up next is Ricky Martin, who will be playing the new Spanish teacher.
So far this season we’ve seen Rachel (Lea Michelle) and Finn (Cory Monteith) get engaged, Quinn (Dianna Agron) snatch her adopted baby back, and a hot for teacher romance between Puck (Mark Salling) and Shelby (Idina Menzel) making for continuity issues and questionable uneven storylines.
In addition in the last year there has been many changes to the primary cast of glee, exits by Ashley Fink and the disappearing and reappearing Chord Overstreet, has made for an uneven season thus far.
