As if I wasn’t excited enough for Glee’s return on April 10, they had to go and tease one of the upcoming songs and it’s a good one: Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.” When I first saw the clip I was worried that this dud was Blaine’s ex-boyfriend or something, which would be a major punch in the gut to Kurt. Not to worry though, the scene features White Collar’s Matt Bomer as Blaine’s seemingly estranged older brother. The duet also includes flashbacks to their past.
Apparently the song selection played a role in Bomer agreeing to do the show, as he told TVLine: ”I had heard the Gotye song and I asked [series co-creator] Ryan [Murphy] 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.”
