This is a kind of New Normal we can get used to: White Collar leading man Matt Bomer will guest star on the NBC comedy.

Bomer will play a former flame of Andrew Rannells’ Bryan, who is engaged to — and expecting a baby with — David (Justin Bartha).

Creator Ryan Murphy announced the casting via Twitter on Wednesday, although reps for the series tell TVLine Bomer’s deal hasn’t closed yet.

“Guess who’s coming on The New Normal as Bryan’s [Andrew Rannells] sexy ex-boyfriend? The one and only Matt Bomer!!!” he wrote.

Fans of Murphy’s Glee will of course remember that the Magic Mike star appeared on the Fox musical hit as Blaine’s thespian — and we use that term lightly — brother Cooper Anderson last season.

Are you excited to see Matt Bomer on the NBC comedy? How fun would it be if the actor’s New Normal character was a star on Bryan’s Glee-like series Sing? Sound off in the comments!

    • It will be intresting o see if Matt Bomer can play a gay man. He is such a ladies man on White Collar, and this is so against his type.

      • You do know that he is gay in real life, right? and how does someone “act” gay? Not every gay man is your stereotypical over-the-top diva.

        • im gay. actors have to “act” regardless of who they are in real life. considering matt bomer does such a good job “acting” straight, it’ll be good to see him “acting” gay on new normal. as an actor. not as a stereotype.

  • With Rannells, Bartha, and Bomer, that will be too much sexy for one TV screen!

    • I have a feeling this will become my new favourite episode. Points if we have Matt Bomer with his shirt off and sexy jealousy and some fighting between Matt and Justin. And also, let’s pray Nana doesn’t get involved. She’ll just talk her ear off and I’d rather we just see Matt, Justin and Andrew in all of their glory. And I hope it’s not just flashbacks.

  • Matt needs to book some guest spots on shows that are not Ryan Murphy shows soon. That being said, I’m really looking forward to seeing him on The New Normal.

  • Can someone other than Ryan Murphy write the episode? That way I can watch without having to mute the awful dialogue?

    Comment by Josh – October 10, 2012 06:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Well, with Matt, Justin and Andrew in scenes together, you won’t have to mute it to not hear the dialogue. Especially if one, two or all are shirtless.

  • Too bad Bomer is gay. Sorry ladies.

    • Whu…? What does that have to do with anything? That doesn’t make him any less interesting. Besides, his family is incredibly sweet. Good for him.

    • OMG he’s gay?! (sarcasm) is that supposed to make him less attractive? The man is beautiful, gay or straight.. just plain beautiful.

      • agree. Aren’t we allowed to oggle?

        • Ditto. It’s not like I had a shot even if he wasn’t gay.

          • Exactly what I say to people who try to feed me the same line. :)

  • i’ll watch this episode for matt, but i gave up on new normal when ryan murphy shoved his political agenda in my face. Im liberal and democrat but that episode was over the top and i didnt even laugh once. everyone is entitled to their views and that episode made it seem like hate.

  • Will there be singing involved? Will there be shirtless singing involved?

  • OMG! Too excited!

  • The only odd thing is that a Matt type would never be interested in an Andrew type in real life! But Matt’s a great actor so no problem I guess.

    • True, he’d be interested in David.
      But Ohhhh Myyyy Goooooood! How come I just saw this today????
