As first reported by TV Line, Bomer would appear in an April episode and share a song with his on-screen sibling.
The casting comes a week after THR exclusively reported that Bomer would join an all-star cast in Murphy’s next feature, the big-screen adaptation of the Tony-winning drama The Normal Heart.
Bomer’s will play Felix Turner, a gay fashion journalist who becomes the boyfriend to Mark Ruffallo’s Ned Weeks and is diagnosed with HIV. Bomer will be stepping into the shoes that won The Big C‘s John Benjamin Hickey his Tony.
The Glee casting marks the latest in a long string of high-profile guest starts this season, many of whom are playing family members to the show’s core cast. Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell were cast last week to play Rachel’s (Lea Michele) gay dads, while Gloria Estefan has been tapped to play the mother to Naya Rivera’s Santana.
Glee airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
