Matt Bomer has just collared another Ryan Murphy gig: a guest spot on freshman NBC comedy The New Normal. The White Collar star — who appeared on Murphy’s Glee last season — will play “the sexy ex-boyfriend” of Bryan (Andrew Rannells), series creator Murphy announced on his Twitter feed today.

Murphy has also cast Bomer in his planned big-screen adaptation of the Tony-winning The Normal Heart.

Centering on a gay couple who are having a child through a surrogate, The New Normal received a full-season order from NBC earlier this month.
