‘Glee’s’ Matt Bomer Teases Cooper Anderson’s Arrival: It’s an Emotional Tornado
When Matt Bomer’s Cooper Anderson arrives at Glee’s McKinley High, Blaine’s (Darren Criss) older brother will cause quite a stir when everyone — including Jane Lynch’s Sue Sylvester — is impressed with the local celebrity.
While his heart is in the right place, the White Collar star tells The Hollywood Reporter that his hilariously named character is a total hot mess when it comes to offering career advice for the kids of New Directions: Point to be dramatic! Wink to be funny! “Unfortunately, the wisdom he’s dispensing is really illegitimate and awful,” Bomer says.
THR caught up with Bomer to discuss how he connected with Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy for the role, covering childhood fave Duran Duran and whether Cooper Anderson could be back for graduation.
THR: Considering your partner, Simon Halls, is Ryan’s agent, has working with Ryan been something you’ve wanted to do for a long time?
Matt Bomer: I’ve been a huge fan of Ryan’s work for years, so yeah, absolutely. I’ve met him socially at the Golden Globes and incidentally at things over the years. But the first time we sat down together was at the meeting for was for The Normal Heart in September, and I was blown away by his talent. To be honest, nobody makes me laugh harder.
Is that where the idea for the best-named character ever — Cooper Anderson — was hatched?
(Laughs) I can’t take credit for that, I’m sure that was either Ryan or [writer] Ian Brennan. Ryan called me one day and asked if I wanted to play Darren Criss’ brother on the show. I was floored and said absolutely. He pitched a story line, and I was literally crying from laughter hearing what a hot mess this character was and how much fun it was going to be to get to play him. He, Ian and [Glee writer] Michael Hitchcock put together a real gift of a role for me.
How much of a “hot mess” is Cooper Anderson?
He’s somebody who has really strong convictions and opinions that are completely misguided and ill-founded, but his heart is in right place. He’s back in town to rekindle a relationship with his brother, and he really wants to help him and his classmates skip out on some of the flames and arrows of the business that he’s had to endure. I wanted to make sure that all the advice and “wisdom” he dispenses to the kids were all founded and based in something. He tells them, “Whatever you do, don’t go to New York,” because he didn’t have a good experience there and wants to save them the heartache of a very difficult business. Unfortunately, the wisdom he’s dispensing is really illegitimate and awful. (Laughs.)
