Glee returns from winter hiatus on Tuesday, April 10 with none other than White Collar star Matt Bomer, whose official fan club counts our very own Price Peterson as a card-carrying member! Bomer tells Watch with Kristen that he plays “Cooper Anderson” (not to be confused with impossibly blue-eyed CNN anchor Anderson Cooper). Bomer's Cooper Anderson is the “outrageously confident” older brother of Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss), famous for starring as the spokesman for a credit-rating commercial. He gives the New Directions kids helpful acting pointers (“pointing and yelling lines is the best way to convey real emotion”).
Here’s a behind-the-scenes peek at Bomer’s visit to McKinley High, where you’ll see him and Criss dueting on Gotye’s folky hit, “Somebody That I Used to Know.” Bomer told TVLine that a casual conversation with show creator Ryan Murphy about this song was what led to his gig on the show.
