Matt Bomer, 35, must have really hit it off with Glee creator Ryan Murphy, 46, when he guest starred as Cooper Anderson, Blaine's (Darren Criss) older brother on the show, because now Bomer has signed on for two other Murphy projects, including NBC's new primetime comedy, The New Normal, which follows a same-sex couple David Murray (Justin Bartha) and Bryan Collins (Andrew Rannells) adopting a child from surrogate Goldie Clemmons (Georgia King). What's more, the entire enterprise is loosely based on Murphy's life.

Bomer will play the hottie ex of Rannells' Bryan, Murphy announced Wednesday on Twitter. "Guess who's coming on The New Normal as Bryan's sexy ex-boyfriend?" Murphy tweeted. "The one and only Matt Bomer!!!"

In addition, Bomer has signed on to play Felix Turner in Murphy's movie adaptation of the Tony-winning Broadway play, The Normal Heart, currently in pre-production, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

NBC has ordered a full season of The New Normal, which also features NeNe Leakes, Ellen Barkin and Ravi Patel and airs Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m EST. The Normal Heart is expected out sometime in 2014.
