'Glee' scoop: Matt Bomer talks playing Blaine's brother and how it differed from 'Magic Mike' -- 'A lot less body rolling'

Gleeks already knew that Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss) was dreamy. But, on the April 10 episode of Glee, viewers will get to meet Blaine’s even dreamier older brother, Cooper — yes Cooper Anderson — played by White Collar‘s Matt Bomer.

Cooper is the star of a credit-rating commercial, which makes him an A-list celebrity in Lima, Ohio, and major crush material for Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). He also gives the New Directions kids a “master class” in acting with such gems as “The key to a dramatic scene is pointing,” and “The secret to great acting is ignoring whatever the other actor is doing.”

Says Bomer, “It was one of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had. It’s so fun to play a character who has such strong convictions and opinions that are completely misguided and come from all the wrong places.”

The actor also gets to duet with Criss on a medley of Duran Duran tunes and a cover of the current hit “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye. EW talked to Bomer about the hit Fox series, Cooper’s inspiration, and how his stripper moves from this summer’s male stripper flick Magic Mike influenced his Glee dancing.

Yeah, I definitely had tuned in for quite a few episodes. Ryan just gave me the call and said, “Do you wanna come on and be part of an episode?” And I said, “Absolutely. That would be fantastic.” He called me the next day and pitched me the character and the story arc and I literally had tears rolling down my face. [Co-creator] Ian Brennan is a friend of mine as well. They both just gave me such rich material to go off of. They let me go as cray cray as I wanted to. READ FULL STORY

'White Collar' captures Mekhi Phifer, 'Hung' alum for season 4 -- EXCLUSIVE

If the bits of your blown mind are still strewn about after White Collar‘s awesome season 3 finale, join the club. And prepare for even more excitement, courtesy of Mekhi Phifer and Hung alum Gregg Henry. EW has learned exclusively that the pair will guest in the first two episodes of season 4.

Phifer, who most recently was a regular on Torchwood, will play FBI agent Kyle Collins, the Bureau’s top international fugitive-hunting specialist, who is tasked with catching Neal (Matt Bomer) — at any cost. Henry, meanwhile, will pop up on the show as Henry Dobbs, a wealthy local with a secret past that “could change Neal and Mozzie’s world forever,” according to casting intel. Henry has appeared on Gilmore Girls, Glee, and recently NCIS: LA‘s Kensi-centric two-parter.

White Collar returns for season 4 this summer with 10 new episodes.

'White Collar': Tim DeKay previews his directing debut, Peter and Neal's role reversal -- EW VIDEO


Tim DeKay was a little surprised when he first learned he’d be directing “Stealing Home,” Tuesday’s episode of White Collar. It was a chance he’d always wanted and he was ready for the challenge (having already stood behind the camera on some short films). But there was one thing he wasn’t expecting: having to helm an episode that heavily featured his character, Peter Burke.

“I was surprised!” he says. “I wasn’t as heavy in the one prior… but I didn’t think Peter would be as heavy in this episode.” The curve ball took a little extra maneuvering, but in the end, he was greatly pleased with the result. READ FULL STORY

'White Collar': Neal and Peter on the mend? -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

The White Collar question I probably get asked the most for EW’s Spoiler Room is about whether Peter (Tim DeKay) and Neal (Matt Bomer) will ever start to heal their fractured relationship — which has been under strain ever since Peter started suspecting that Neal had stolen the U-boat treasure. And inquiries increased by tenfold after the summer finale, in which Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) was kidnapped by Keller, who was using her as a hostage until he got the treasure he knew Neal had.

Yeah, this wasn’t going to help mend anything.

But in the clip below, we find the two on much better terms, and, dare I say, genuinely friendly again. Whew.

How they get to this point, however, is another story. As you’ve seen in the preview, there are rocky times ahead — not to mention a wifey in the balance. It all unfolds a mere week from now on Jan. 17. READ FULL STORY

'Fringe,' 'Castle,' 'The Secret Circle,' 'The Vampire Diaries': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Happy Friday, all!

What a week it’s been. If you, like me, are suffering from this strange, post-holiday walking coma, then hopefully this week’s column puts a little skip back into your step.

Thanks to everyone who has been answering the call for questions. (Remember, no question is stupid! Unless it is. Kidding!) So keep it up!

Oh, and I just figured out how to make one of these nifty Twitter buttons! (Don’t tease — I know I’m ridiculously late to the cool button party.)


'White Collar' promo: The search for Elizabeth is on...and Peter's not taking it well -- VIDEO

No one really thinks Elizabeth is going to be whacked at the hands of Keller — Neal’s old rival who in the last episode of White Collar kidnapped our favorite fed’s significant other. Right?

But it’s fun, nonetheless, to ponder what’s about to go down when the show returns Jan. 17 with an episode that (per the new promo, viewable below) has Peter (Tim DeKay) angrier than ever at Neal (Matthew Bomer). Not only do we see the aftermath of him finding out that Neal had the U-boat treasure all along, but let’s also assume that Peter is mostly peeved that his lovely wife (Tiffani Thiessen) has found herself in danger as a result of his lies. Oh, can’t these two just get along. READ FULL STORY

'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Justified,' 'Once Upon a Time,' 'White Collar': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Welcome back, friends! Hope the holidays were as fattening for you as they were for me.

As winter hiatus comes to a close, it’s time to get back into the swing of things. (Although, I hope you still enjoyed the special Once Upon a Time edition of Spoiler Room that was served up last week!) And this week, there’s a little bit of something for everyone, I hope. If not, there’s a simple way to solve that: Hit me up! E-mail or Tweet me @EWSandraG. And if you don’t see your question, keep trying! (I do read them all!)

Enjoy, and it’s truly lovely to be back in the swing of things! (Side note: Anyone else sort of love what’s going on in this week’s Spoiler Room blend? Now that’s a trio!)

The year 2011 hasn’t been the easiest for Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Co., on The Vampire Diaries, and, as Julie Plec told Mandi Bierly, the first new episode of the season doesn’t do much to indicate changing winds in 2012. READ FULL STORY

USA renews 'White Collar' for 4th season

USA has renewed White Collar for a fourth season, and purchased a healthy 16 episodes to boot.

The drama series has averaged about 5.7 million viewers this summer. The show returns in January for the second half of the third season, then USA will presumably split up the fourth season too.

News comes on the heels of USA renewing new shows Necessary Roughness and Suits for a second round, but cancelling In Plain Sight.

'The Vampire Diaries,' 'White Collar,' 'Supernatural,' 'Raising Hope': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Hey, Roomies. I missed you during my travels! But your letters and questions kept me warm last week in San Diego during Comic-Con. (No, seriously, they made me sleep outside and I used them as a blanket. I’m kidding… probably.)

So, here we are, on the doorstep of fall TV, and we’re knocking hard until we get all the info we crave. Let’s get to it.

Remember to keep those queries coming! Mail them to or tweet them to me @EWSandraG. Also, if you have a little time, send me your thoughts on Comic-Con. What you liked (videos?), what you didn’t like (the stupid faces I apparently make when I get really excited), and tell me if your scoop appetite was fed to your satisfaction. We have 360-ish days to work on it, and we’d like to start now. Love you like nerds love Mrs. Fields and overpriced memorabilia! Till next week.

There’s so much to look forward to on this season of The Vampire Diaries. Elena’s 18th birthday, bad Stefan, and soapy Damon. But when prompted for his outlook for the season, Joseph Morgan says he’s most excited to meet Klaus’ family. “We get a chance to go back and see the point where they became vampires and where the curse was placed on Klaus to suppress his hybrid nature, his hybrid side,” he told a roundtable. “It’ll be interesting when we introduce other originals who are possibly equally as powerful or have some sort of emotional hold over Klaus … to see what that brings out of him.” READ FULL STORY

'White Collar': Tiffani Thiessen on Elizabeth's 'soft spot' for Neal, chances of a baby for the Burkes, and her dream guest star. (Hint: Reunion!)

As wife to Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) on USA’s White Collar, Tiffani Thiessen’s character, Elizabeth, is no stranger to being part of the boys club that dominates the show. But that’s the way the actress likes it.

“To play a little more with the guys — as I say — has been quite fun this season,” she says. And it’s easier to be part of the action these days — last season she spent most of her time pregnant and in front of a green screen pre-filming scenes. Not fun, she says.

But as the show’s third season rolls on, Thiessen stopped by EW HQ this week to preview the action on the way for her character and talk about what the future holds for the Burkes. Oh, and Saved By the Bell. (You know we couldn’t just let that slip by.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You’ve been in the action a little more this season. Have you had a favorite moment so far?
TIFFANI THIESSEN: It’s hard to say. I love all the episodes, but definitely the ones where I get to play a little bit more are a lot of fun. There’s a great one that just aired a few weeks ago. It’s the one where Peter goes undercover and does speed dating — “Veiled Threat.” It was great.  READ FULL STORY

'The Good Wife,' 'White Collar,' 'Bones,' 'Franklin & Bash': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Spoilers are like apples, Roomies. Shake the tree, and you’ll get one to fall. And next week at the annual San Diego Comic-Con, the apples will fall like rain, so be prepared. Rather, help me prepare! Send your burning questions about any and all shows going to Comic-Con (and those that aren’t, if you’re so inclined), so I can come back with a basket of bounty to share with you all. We’ll make spoiler pie together! Also, this apple metaphor has gone on about five sentences too long. So I’m stopping now.

Send questions to (note the two “r”s) or Tweet them to me @EWSandraG.

Also, this week, the “side dishes” are the main course. (Clearly hungry right now… ) Enjoy!

Sandra, I’m betting you’ve already drooled over these pics of gun-wielding Joe Manganiello on the set of White Collar, right? What else can you tell me about his role (and how much heavage we’ll be seeing)? — Maggie READ FULL STORY

Basic cable shows: What's hot (and what's not)

We know what you’ve been thinking: Is Extreme Couponing a hit for TLC? Is anyone really watching American Restoration? Lucky for you, we’ve got the results from the second quarter, which will not only allow us to gauge the success of series that aired during the regular TV season (hi, The Killing!), but also take into consideration shows that began in June (welcome back to TV, Falling Skies‘ Noah Wyle). Averages are based on the premiere (or original) episodes only; no reruns go into the making of these stats. Enjoy after the jump (and no goofing on Khloe & Lamar). READ FULL STORY
