After a successful collaboration, series creator Ryan Murphy and actor Matt Bomer are intent to pursue another partnership.
"White Collar"'s Bomer has agreed to a guest-role on Murphy's NBC comedy "The New Normal." Murphy revealed on his Twitter that Bomer is set to play the "sexy ex-boyfriend" of Andrew Wannell's Bryan. Look, "sexy" is kind of redundant in that description. As a red-blooded heterosexual even I have to admit that Bomer is a goddamn gorgeous man.
Anyway, Bomer previously appeared in a guest-role on Murphy's Fox hit "Glee," where he played Blaine's older brother. Additionally, he'll star in Murphy's big-screen adaptation of the Tony-winning play "The Normal Heart." Given that the character of Bryan on "New Normal" is based on Murphy, one wonders if the series creator is trying to tell Bomer something.
The actor has seen his series success on USA's "White Collar," where he has played affable thief Neal Caffrey since 2009, transition to big-screen roles in Andrew Niccol's science-fiction drama "In Time" as well as Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike." The role also resulted in one of the funnier Freudian slips on NBC's "Today" show when the actor joined co-stars Tiffani Thiessen and Tim DeKay to promote the new season.
