Bomer will play a former flame of Andrew Rannells’ Bryan, who is engaged to — and expecting a baby with — David (Justin Bartha).
Creator Ryan Murphy announced the casting via Twitter on Wednesday, although reps for the series tell TVLine Bomer’s deal hasn’t closed yet.
“Guess who’s coming on The New Normal as Bryan’s [Andrew Rannells] sexy ex-boyfriend? The one and only Matt Bomer!!!” he wrote.
Fans of Murphy’s Glee will of course remember that the Magic Mike star appeared on the Fox musical hit as Blaine’s thespian — and we use that term lightly — brother Cooper Anderson last season.
