Our dreams are coming true next week! It's the Glee episode we've all been waiting for!
And yes, we're talking Matt Bomer and Darren Criss together
forever at last!
But before next Tuesday comes, Mr. Bomer is dishing out the deets in the meantime! Just a little sumpin' sumpin' to whet our appetites!!
When asked how the role of Blaine's brother came about, Matt responded:
"I had heard the Gotye song [Somebody That I Used to Know] and I asked [series co-creator] Ryan [Murphy] if he ever thought of using that as a duet on the show. And he said he had. And then a week later I got a text from him asking me if I wanted to come on the show to sing it. And I said, 'Absolutely!'"
Okay, so now that we know his character is a MAJOR TOOL, Matt talks a little about that:
"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. 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."
He also talks about his kissing scene with Jane Lynch! Oh that's inneresting…
"I think Jane sussed out right away that my character was just all over the map, just a complete hot mess. And so she knew that whatever greeting they had together would be completely inappropriate. So she said, 'Matt, on this take, just kiss me on the lips.' I said, 'Great. You don’t have to ask me twice.' It was nice. She had a lovely lip gloss on that tasted quite nice."
Mmmm, if only those were our lips!!
Now, let's get to the nitty-gritty AKA, the most important part of the episode: His scenes with Darren!!! Matt says:
"I had an incredible time working with Darren. He was completely professional and fun and came to play. We had a lot of laughs between takes, and we had a lot of fun playing off of each other. Anytime you’re playing someone’s sibling you want to get to know that person and it’s important that they be accessible to that, and Darren was completely open and available so that we were able to develop a friendship and get an idea of what it would be like to actually be brothers."
OMG okay, so can you two be like BFFs IRL, right?? Can you just hang out with each other so that we can drool over pictures of the two of you together??
Srsly, though - IS IT TUESDAY YET?????
