If you caught last night episode of the hit Fox series Glee, Matt Bomer guest starred as Cooper Anderson, Blaine’s older self-absorbed brother. Bomer, who we all know has the handsome Ben Reade from Guiding Light, then on to his starring role on USA’s White Collar, and Broadway and television and motion picture productions in between, really showed his versatility on last night’s Glee.
From Cooper’s hilarious and arrogant masterclass in acting , where he says acting is all about pointing at the other actor and ignoring everything they say, Bomer played Cooper as a two-bit actor whose greatest claim to fame is his FreeCreditRating.com commercials. However, viewers learned throughout the episode how Bomer’s Cooper has messed with younger brother, Blaine’s (Darren Criss) confidence throughout his life.
Sadly however, this episode did score as well in the ratings! According to EW.com, “Even thought it drew 6.7 million viewers, 2.7 adults 18-49, the musical drama fell to a season low in the adult demo, dropping 10 percent from its last original back in February. Fox points out that overall TV viewership was down 9 percent in the hour compared to when Glee last aired, before Daylight Savings Time kicked in.”
As for Bomer with his singing, acting and dancing prowess, we ask, is there anything that Matt can’t do well? He is great at everything, and yes, he looks good while doing it. In case you missed the climatic musical scene, we have it for you after the jump, where Darren Criss and Bomer perform their rendition of Goyte’s hit song, Somebody That I Used To Know, and we have to say, we think it was just as good or even better than the original! Heart-tugging and beautifully performed.
