While there may not be too much breaking at the moment when it comes to “Glee” season 4 scoop, we do at least know what the co-creator of the show, along with one of its former guest stars in Matt Bomer, is going to be teaming up to do in the near future: a screen version of a very famous play.
HBO announced in a press release on Friday that the upcoming Ryan Muprhy-directed “The Normal Heart,” which stars Julia Roberts (who he worked with previously on “Eat, Pray, Love”) and Mark Ruffalo in the principal roles. Bomer is set to play the role of a reporter who ends up becoming the lover to Ruffalo’s character.
This is going to end up being a rather prestigious project for both Murphy as well as the network; the playwright himself in Larry Kramer is going to help adapt the work (which won a score of Tony Awards for its 2011 revival) onto the small screen, and just about every HBO film out there somehow manages to end up being in consideration for Primetime Emmy Awards at the end of the day. This film will actually not air on the network until some point in 2014.
Bomer made his debut on “Glee” early in 2012 as Cooper Anderson, the older brother of Blaine (Darren Criss) who was trying to make a name for himself as a serious actor. Meanwhile, he is also guest-starring on an upcoming episode of “The New Normal” as a guy who actually tries to steal Goldie from David and Bryan in order to be a surrogate for him at some point in the future.
Are you excited to see this new project, and do you find yourself wondering just how in the world Murphy is really able to do so much to begin with? If you want to see some new “Glee” season 4 posters featuring Lea Michele and other cast members, you can do so here.
