BLAINE’S BIG BROTHER PAYS A VISIT TO LIMA –  Matt Bomer (“White Collar”) Guest-Stars –  Much to Blaine’s chagrin, his big-shot Hollywood actor brother, Cooper (Guest Star Bomer), comes to visit in the all-new Spring Premiere “Big Brother” episode of GLEE airing Tuesday, April 10 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (GLE-315) (TV-14 L)

When Blaine’s narcissistic older brother (and television commercial star) Cooper returns to Lima from Hollywood, Sue and Will enlist the local celebrity’s help in improving New Directions’ acting technique. While Cooper’s presence is welcomed by some, it forces Blaine to address the brothers’ ongoing sibling rivalry. As Quinn tries to be optimistic in the wake of her accident, Artie offers support tempered with a much-needed (albeit unwanted) dose of reality. Meanwhile, Sue gets medical news that forces a change in her behavior, and Puck makes Finn a business proposal that could derail his future plans with Rachel. (Gleezone)

New:   Blaine is “fantastically wet and shirtless in this episode, FYI. There is a boxing-shower montage you Darren Criss fans won’t be mad at! Get those freeze-frame fingers ready.” (EOnline)

NEW: 20 second promo confirms that Finn and Rachel did not get married. (Watch at the bottom of the page:

New Klaine spoiler. AWWWW. Sniff. “Not much to say about Klaine in “Big Brother,” because Kurt is too busy fawning over Cooper (Bomer) to really pay attention to his boyfriend’s pain. Who can blame him? Until the end of the episode, that is. Kurt very sweetly pushes his love to make amends with his bro, reminding us Glee fans why Klaine are in it for the long haul. Love those two. (EOnline)

Is there any Puck in this episode? Yes. A lot, actually. And it’s not just for kicks. Puck has a big role in helping Finn figure out his future.

NEW: Behind the Scenes video at the bottom of the page.  Blaine’s brother Cooper is the star of  the “Free Credit Rating” commercials. Everyone from Kurt to Sue Sylvester is smitten with him.  He teaches an “acting master class” to New Directions.

NEW: More Matt Bomer interviews at The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Weekly, and TVGuide

  • “Like any relationship with brothers, it’s complicated and complex. It’s a competitive relationship, a loving relationship. He feels a sense of responsibility as an older brother to look out for his younger brother. He also knows that his brother is incredibly talented, maybe more so than he is and he wants to make sure that that talent gets seen in more than just a free credit rating commercial, not that there’s anything wrong with that, but he wants more for his brother and he knows he’s going to have a lot of success. He wants to help usher him in to that success in the best way he knows how.” (THR)
  • Cooper’s first “song” is actually a commercial that he does for Bomer: It was the first thing we shot, so within the first five minutes of my arrival on set, they had me dancing around, being as cheesy as possible. McKinley’s obsessed with the commercial, but I wanted it to have a twinge of extreme desperation underneath. Oh, and if you look closely, watch for this dancing cop in the background. He does these spins and ends with his leg out and gun pointed in the air. [Choreographer] Zach Woodlee did such a good job with the extras and the dancing in it! It’s a rare treat to be this silly.

  • Someone That I Used to Know” is a Blaine/Cooper duet!
  • Kurt describes Cooper as “the most good-looking guy in all of North America.”  Oh noes. Jealousy!  No wonder Blaine looks so unhappy in the new promo! Besides the fact the big brother is a D-Bag.
  • “At the end of the day, Cooper is just desperate for validation… I think he comes back to town under the ruse that he’s doing all of this gritty work for the next commercial campaign. But I think he also needs to get back in touch with his roots and reality because he’s having a tough go of it. But then once he realizes that he’s kind of a hometown hero, the hubris kicks in and his ego expands exponentially.”
  • “At the heart of it, he really does want to help his brother avoid the slings and arrows of being a young artist. He clearly hasn’t had an easy road of it as an actor. And over the course of that path, he sort of developed his own short cuts and tricks of the trade, which are all horribly misleading and misguided.”
  • Cooper kisses Sue.  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.”

Tell me now! I need to know if Rachel and Finn actually tied the knot on Glee!: You won’t need much more patience, grasshopper! That question will be answered in the first 60 seconds of Tuesday’s spring premiere. But whether or not you can call Rachel Mrs. Hudson from now on is kind of beside the point because the young couple might be breaking up! (Breathe!) Why? Because Finn is about to receive an interesting business proposition that would take him about 3,000 miles away from Broadway. (TVGuide) (Finn asks Rachel in the new promo if she would consider moving to California)

Bits I could glean from the promo: Sue hints that the father of her baby is a celebrity.  She also appears to be coaching the “sloppy babies” (New Directions!) in some moves for Nationals (you’ll remember she offered her services to Will at the end of the last episode).

There are roller coasters, Kurt looking real surprised (but happy to see big brother!) and Blaine singing “Somebody that I Used to Know” by Goyte

There are also photos of the Glee kids at the amusement park celebrating senior skip day. Rachel and Finn (Cory Monteith) looking super-pensive as Artie (Kevin McHale) performs.

Episode 14 left us with a huge cliffhanger. Did Quinn survive being broadsided by a huge truck? The answer is yes, but with a caveat.  The photo was taken on February 21 at an outdoor skate park where Glee was filming scenes.  The scene is part of “Senior skip day”  Photos HERE.

Senior Skip Day – That was yesterday (Feb 21)  at Santa Clarita Skate Park, where Kevin takes Dianna to see a bunch of kids from a program called Life Rolls On dropping in to pools in wheelchairs. And not the full-of-water kind. They were pretty amazing. The second half of the day we shot the rest of the kids riding roller coasters at Six Flags.  True story: shooting on roller coasters is incredibly tedious and not at all as fun and exciting as it might sound, especially when you’re chasing daylight.

EOnline posted this. “We’ve been given clearance to tell you that Dianna Agron will return to the Glee set in some capacity, whether it is a dream sequence, a reduced role, a flashback or a flashforward, etc. We have it on good authority that nothing has been set in stone yet as far as the fourth season of Glee —including whether Dianna will be a series regular.

“…for now, Quinn (Dianna Agron) and Artie (Kevin McHale) will only find a friendship with each other. But it’ll be a special one.” (EOnline)

In the meantime–Quinn looks to be paralyzed. Her dancing and cheeleading days over, at least for the time being.

On February 21, the Glee kids had a location shoot at Magic Mountain for a Senior Skip Day scene.   Here’s a photo of the crew getting ready.  Plus, here are casting calls for cast doubles.  The handicapped skate park scenes with Artie and Quinn were also shot on the 21st.

The production was looking looking to cast a  12-16 year old Cooper and a 4-7 Year  old Blaine. So it looks like we’ll be getting some flashbacks.

Glee filmed a scene at this house.   (The Hummel-Hudson house is right next door!).  A tricycle and some other kids toys were used as props.

Here’s a tumblr photo set of an upcoming number shot on February 10. (fyeahglee)
