The actor recently joined the cast to play Darren Criss’ older brother Cooper, but admits his most memorable Glee moment was shared with Lynch, who plays acid-tongued cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester.
He tells TV Line, “I think Jane sussed out right away that my character was just all over the map, just a complete hot mess. And so she knew that whatever greeting they had together would be completely inappropriate. So she said, ‘Matt, on this take, just kiss me on the lips.’ I said, ‘Great. You don’t have to ask me twice.’
“It was nice. She had a lovely lip gloss on that tasted quite nice.”
Bomer also reveals he landed the cameo after approaching creator Ryan Murphy about incorporating the Gotye hit Somebody That I Used to Know in the script.
He adds, “I had heard the Gotye song and I asked Ryan if he ever thought of using that as a duet on the show. And he said he had. And then a week later I got a text from him asking me if I wanted to come on the show to sing it. And I said, ‘Absolutely!'”
