The New Normal Casts White Collar's Matt Bomer as Bryan's 'Sexy Ex'

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!

    Holy Crap!!! i just was thinking a couple hrs ago that i hope Ryan brings Matt onto the new normal!!! YES!!

    • skillman says:

      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.

      • Curly Girly says:

        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.

        • lame says:

          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.

  3. Puffie says:

    Hey for HIM, I’ll watch it.

  4. Alex says:

    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.

  5. Josh says:

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

  6. Jared says:

    I love everything about this post

    Crying with excitement. Can’t wait to see Rannells and Bomer on screen together!

  11. Rachel says:

    Where and when so I can have a ambulance on stand by? Is Ryan to kill me with putting Andrew and Matt together cause seriously there hands down the hottest guys on tv right now.

  12. Jenn says:

    Bomer is perfection!

  13. John says:

    Too bad Bomer is gay. Sorry ladies.

  14. Dena says:

    Don’t really care if Matt is gay. A hot guy is a hot guy & Matt is scorching!

  15. Mikael says:

    Hotness overload!!

  16. lame says:

    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.

  17. Deena says:

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

  18. Ella says:

    OMG! Too excited!

  19. Robi says:

    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.
