Matt Bomer has described his Glee character as “horribly misleading and misguided.”
The White Collar star is set to play Cooper, Blaine’s (Darren Criss) intense actor brother, in the Fox show’s next episode on April 10.
“To me, the fun of the role was getting to play somebody who had such strong convictions and opinions about all of the wrong things and in all of the wrong ways,” he told TV Line. “At the heart of it, he really does want to help his brother avoid the slings and arrows of being a young artist.
“He clearly hasn’t had an easy road of it as an actor. And over the course of that path, he sort of developed his own short cuts and tricks of the trade, which are all horribly misleading and misguided.”
The video teaser (click the photo above to watch) gives a glimpse his performance of Gotye‘s “Somebody I Used to Know” along with Darren Criss’ Blaine. Beside this number, the two will team up to do a mash-up of Duran Duran‘s songs.
Asked if he prefers one performance to the other, Bomer said, “To me they were both completely different experiences. The Duran Duran was just fun pop and it was great to get to dance and interact and use the whole one-upmanship of all that. But to me, I love the Gotye song because it’s so actable and so immediate and so inherently dramatic.”
