And no, we’re not talking about Blaine (Darren Criss) — we realized the depths of our schoolgirl crush on Blaine long, long ago. No, tonight was all about swooning over Blaine’s older brother, Cooper (Matt Bomer)!
Yes, we realize the guy can be a total tool, but his heart does appear to be in the right place. Most of the time. In any case, we’d love to see him back on the show, especially because it would mean more depth and backstory for Blaine.
So, will Cooper be returning to the halls of McKinley High any time soon? Unfortunately... no. Like many a Glee guest star before him, Matt Bomer is a TAD bit short of free time. He’s a main characters on the USA show, White Collar, which films in New York City.
We imagine it would be pretty hard for Matt to star on one show and make recurring guest appearances on another... Especially when the two series film on opposite sides of the country!
So while appearing in Season 3 is out of the question for Matt, the White Collar star did tell TV Guide that hopes to work out some sort of a return for Season 4. On top of that, he told E! Online that he’d do whatever it takes to come back. "I'd be there in a heartbeat!"
