Matt has a great voice. What is the relationship between the characters? The flashback suggests brothers.
That was unexpectedly touching.
And speaking of unexpected touching...
I would pay good cash money for surprise anal with one or both, together or apart.
They are actually plaing brothers on the show.
That was a creepy, inappropriate song, the way they were walking around each other gave an incest-y vibe.
It's all well and good when the Winchesters are dancing around each other but this just looks wrong.
I'm waiting for the mash- up Duran Duran songs they are doing.
Glad someone else here appreciates the late great Elliot r1.
This is an OK take on this song but ultimately unmoving. Hot dudes with rocking bodies like these guys just don't have to deal with these feelings. They're the ones doing the "screwing over".
How tall / short is Matt Bomer? He doesn't seem that much taller than Darren Criss...maybe in the 5'9-5'10 range?
[quote]Matt has a great voice.
Um, you realize he's been auto-tuned to within an inch of his life?
I thought this was on tonight. Darn.
R4's right. It's way creepy - the stage is all dark and sexy looking. Ew.
How embarrassing...for them.
[quote]Um, you realize he's been auto-tuned to within an inch of his life?
You realize this isn't the first time Matt Bomer has sung in public, don't you?
Bomer is short, so Criss must be really short. Like little people short.
It's already been established that Darren Criss is two inches away from his own reality show on TLC.
Bomer is 5'9"-5'10" and Criss is 5'5"-5'6".
I love this song with Gotye and Kimbra! It will never be equaled.
I feel sorry for Blaine , his brother got the good genes
"the way they were walking around each other gave an incest-y vibe."
You typed that like it's a bad thing. ?
The clothes they dress Darren Criss in have definitely gotten tighter. That outfit shows off his muscles, ass and crotch quite well.
Him and Matt Bomer both look hot.
What's the diff in height between Matt and his hubby?
Simon is pretty tall, at least 6'2".
I do appreciate that everytime some reporter asks Darren about Bomer one of the first things he mentions is how good looking Matt Bomer is.
And Darren is taller than 5'5". Not by a lot, he is probably just shy of 5'7".
Is Criss still purporting to be straight? I honestly don't see how he can continue to claim he's straight.
R37 Darren and his girlfriend longtime girlfriend Mia.
I believe him because as I've mentioned on this board before I know someone who was involved in UMich theater at the time he was there. By all accounts even though he is gayish he was interested in women.
Dude grew up in the musical theater scene of San Francisco, there is no way he is getting out of that without being a bit gay in personality.
After hearing this song it made me want to listen to orginal version this ain't it but it is still awasome. How come this has 30 million views and this is the first I'm seeing it?
Darren is very nice but the first guy doing vocals from Walk Away From Earth is um, taller...
I first became aware of this song about a month ago, when a co-worker of mine had it on his Facebook page. It's gotten catchier with every listen.
listened to the original so much this us a welcome change
Where did Matt Bomer learn to sing?
He was a musical theatre major at Carnegie Mellon.
How did he pass the singing auditions?
he didn't sing in High School, he played football
He was also in drama club and did theater in Houston.
WTF does it matter?
How does one go from playing high school football, to passing singing auditions?
And as we all know, r50, it is physically impossible for someone to have more than one interest during their teenage years. I've heard from multiple friends with kids that their children have to pick an interest by age 12, and that will be the only activity they're allowed to engage in until age 30.
[quote]How does one go from playing high school football, to passing singing auditions?
First you do a hit of poppers, then you suck a great big cock. Finally you thrown your legs toward the heavens in a V formation.
Exactly R53. When you play football in high school in Texas, that is all you do.
Think Friday Night Lights
And Matt Bomer can't sing.
R56 which is why I wonder how he passed the singing auditions to get into that program.
Playing football in Texas is a 24/7 thing, with no time to do anything else.
Didn't anyone watch Friday Night Lights?
His looks, r57.
R17, that in no way surpasses the original Gotye recording. Gimmicky BS.
I heart r54.
r57 He dropped out of football senior year so he could concentrate on theatre.
[quote] He dropped out of football senior year so he could concentrate on theatre.
He must have lost a lot of friends. In Texas, you don't do that.
"WTF does it matter?"
It matters to clueless bitchy cunts who NEED to attack successful gay men! They NEED facts to pounce upon to delude themselves into feeling informed in their cunty attacks.
Again if you watch Friday Night Lights, playing football in Texas is not just one thing. It is the ONLY thing.
So just curious how Matthew was able to juggle both, if he had to.
R51...what part of bitchy gay gossip board don't you understand, snookums?
R62...hon, the "cunt" in the room is the one who doesn't understand what "bitchy gay gossip board" means, and acts all uppity when people are gossiping. You don't have to be here, CUNT. If you don't like it, GO AWAY.
Hon, you cunt, I was here LONG before you. so don't patronize a bitch who enjoys defining bitchery for the bitch-inept.
Go gobble some bon-bons, you junior varsity cuntlette.
Haters Hater Haters....Ha Matt Bomer can sing..keep hating
Loved it, both looked so hot.
I also read somewhere that one of his hobbies is playing guitar
That performance is so overdone that it should be sent to the Butterball Turkey Talk Line as a cautionary tale.
Of course Matt can sing!
But I didn't like the DUran DUran covered B/C that's not my type of songs (I hate POP music)
R69...oh dear. You're just a sad specimen, aren't you. ?You can't tolerate gossip and yet you've been here a long time. Sad.
Duran duran songs are so crappy..its impossible for anybody to make them sound good
[quote]Where did Matt Bomer learn to sing?
Miss Sylvia's School Of Song And Movement.
A little bit of trivia, "Somebody That I Used To Love" was originally performed by Natalie Cole.
I love me some adorable Darren Criss, but that hot little leprechaun is no Laurence Olivier. I couldn't help but giggle at all the angry, serious and wounded faces he was struggling to make as he sang this song. Does the poor little guy not have any acting coaches on set? Or is he just a great singing performer and just not that capable in the acting arena, like Madonna?
Darren criss facial expressions are over the top my gosh i want to punch him
Ta r81, i thought i was the ony one who can't hack tht face...
Darren Criss is a great charismatic performer, but no, he isn't some gifted acting talent. No one but silly teen girls thinks he is.
Still I.think he will be fairly successful, he has that x factor.
"what part of bitchy gay gossip board don't you understand, snookums?"
"...hon, the "cunt" in the room is the one who doesn't understand what "bitchy gay gossip board" means, and acts all uppity when people are gossiping. You don't have to be here, CUNT. If you don't like it, GO AWAY."
"oh dear. You're just a sad specimen, aren't you. ?You can't tolerate gossip and yet you've been here a long time. Sad."
You've definitely got the 'pointless' part down, Trollina McCuntlette. The 'gossip' part still eludes you.
Darren a good performer yeah good actor NAWW...if glee werent a singing show..dont even know....i wonder what he will do after glee because if it doesnt involve performing ..his in trouble
Darren has a problem with a name, Ryan Murphy . RM is living through the character of Kurt and has a huge hard on for Darren. Instead of making Blaine interesting he's pushing him into all storylines and it's annoying.
Don't get how you're all wetting your panties over Matt Bomer all the time. To me he's just a few genetic instructions away from being Chris Kattan.
If you dont get why anybody wouldnt wet their panties over matt bomer..then you deserve to live..because you dont appreciate beauty
because you are just a fungurl. Ew
NO i am not..i have eyes something you cleary dont have
"NO i am not..i have eyes something you cleary dont have"
Cue an "Oh, Dear!" musical number!
This is just so terrible. Bomer looks embarrassed and who can blame him--Criss's "acting" is just so terrible. (His singing is high-school-musical level, at best, as well.)
I hate that these things are available so long in advance before the episode airs. I know it's supposed to keep the audience happy and hooked on the show, but I'd prefer to be surprised.
Christ, R52, there were like 10+ guys in my high school class who were in football or basketball AND in the choir AND/OR band. And this in a town of 2,000 and a high school class of 64, in butt fuck NY state, in the 70's.
Unless it has become physically impossible in the past 30 years for athletes to sing?? i don't quite understand your question.
WTF is wrong with some of you, saying Bomer can't sing? Do you think he would havde been asked to be on the Kennedy Center Honors? or cast in "Glee"? if he couldn't sing? I don't care HOW cute he is and HOW powerful Simon is; there are TONS of cute, singing, faggot or faggy actor/singers out there for Ryan Murphy, for example, to pick from.
"Don't hate him because he's beautiful"
The use of "faggot" on this board has become increasingly loose and often offensive (as opposed to humorous), and I suspect that the frauish straight women are responsible.
darren is horrible at acting always over the top
R98, I think it's mainly bitter, self-hating gay men.
R100 is a frau.
Fuck you, R76.
They were one of, if not, THE, biggest band of the 80's.
Who do you like?
The mash-up sounds to techno-y for my tastes, though.
being the biggest bands of the 80s doesn't make them any less crap
thats like saying because madonna is huge ..she is not crap
the first rule of being "popular" is to be mediocre.
[quote]thats like saying because madonna is huge ..she is not crap
To millions she is not crap. Doesn't make them wrong because YOU don't appreciate her. Most people walking around with their noses in the air dismissing mainstream are very lonely, sad people. They want to feel special, but they rarely are.
The How to Succeed producers would love to have Darren back for a month or so during the summer break. Ticket sales for Nick Jonas have been soft.
Darren obviously has a big fanbase but I wonder what ticket sales would have been like if people didn't know it was only a 3-week limited engagement. That obviously drove up sales a lot and Nick Jonas doesn't have that.
Also, you can now buy Matt Bomer's and Darren's cover of Somebody I Used to Know on iTunes for anyone that is interested.
This is why nice people like Darren:
"Meeting Kermit. Bar none, meeting Kermit and singing with Kermit was one of the biggest things that ever happened to me in my life."
r106 to millions shes not crap to millions more she is ..so your point ?
R96 it is bumfuck not buttfuck.
Hey, pro-and anti-Madonna cuntlettes:
START YOUR OWN FUCKING THREAD, YOU STUPID QUEENS.
Half hour to showtime!
Disappointed in the duet. Too much Darren.
Darren Was it fun to do the Gotye song, “Somebody That I Used to Know?”
Yeah. There are so many songs that I get to do. I’m very lucky because of the kind of places they hold in my heart. Gotye is one of those artists that’s been around for a while. I’ve been a Gotye fan for awhile. When you see the songs on the second page of the script — you open up and you’ll see five or six songs and it doesn’t say who’s singing what — so when you see a song like that, you’re like “Oh my God! Please! Please! Please!”
Me and Matt and Eric Stoltz went through like nine different combinations of who would sing what. We were trying to change it around so it would make sense contextually. So like I sang everything on it and Matt sang everything on it and then right before we shot it we kinda decided what would be the best usage of words. So it’s not an exact copy. Somewhere in some vault there’s a recording of Matt Bomer singing the whole thing.
"Too much Darren."
That phrase is not in my vo-CAB-ullary!
DC is a fugly little troll. When Glee ends, so will his career.
thats actually true..i cant see him doing anything besides glee...his a good singer but not a good actor at all
He's contemptuous of gay people in his personal life.
I hope you're not going to just leave that there, 119. This is a gossip board after all.
[quote]He's contemptuous of gay people in his personal life.
You would be too if you owed your stardom to being Ryan Murphy's buttboy.
For the first show back after its mini hiatus, it would have been nice if the episode wasn't ALL BLAINE ALL THE TIME. Criss is as annoying a performer as Lea Michelle.
I like Darren Criss, but Matt did not look even a little like his brother. That "Glee"...
never very realistic.
I don't care about Matt Bomer.. I WANT QUINN TO WALK AGAIN!!!!!!!
"i cant see him doing anything besides glee.."
Well then, you can't "see" his numerous non-Glee sold out live concerts in NYC, San Francisco, LA and elsewhere.
I mean, he's no Pavoratti, but the guy's got a huge fan base; had one pre-Glee.
Pretty good for a hobbit!
R125= fatty frau who switched over from Adam Lambert.
Uh, no, 126 cuntlette. But thanks for playing.
[quote]i cant see him doing anything besides glee.
Yeah, poor him
I don't think Darren or Matt is going to be that insulted by it. Glee is Glee. They know the music for the show tends to have a certain style to it which some people don't like.
Ha! It's hardly Darren's or Matt's fault. They were directed to sing it a certain way and then it was produced a certain way (i.e. the Glee way). Glee songs all end up sounding autotuned so don't know what the guy's complaining about. He knew what would happen to it and he took the money and the publicity, so it's hypocritical to diss it. Probably trying to get back some indie cred after he sold out.
And I kinda prefer the Glee version anyway because I really don't like the Gotye guy's voice. He sounds like a wannabe Sting or Phill Collins.
I thought I liked Gotye now I hope he gets hate mail. Glee probably helped him get a number 1 song and this is the thanks they get. Jerk...
How old are you R136?
He is entitled to his opinion, he probably should have been more tactful about it but whatever. The comment wasn't that mean, anyone that knows anything about music knows Glee has that autotuned type style to their music.
At least Criss knew who the fuck Gotye was before the did the song. He's very appreciative of the music he gets to sing.
Criss had no idea who Gotye was before the producers told him to pretend to be a superfan. How gullible some of you are...
Thank you, R139.
And how is the imaginary view from INSIDE DARREN CRISS's mind, you insipid fagfrau fartstain?
Apparently it was Matt who suggested the song for "Glee" (he mentioned in one of the promo interviews that he'd done so to Ryan Murphy) - although not how they ended up using it.
Of course I doubt he'd take it personally that Gotye criticised the style of the production of the song, as it was nothing to do with him, but he can't be thrilled that the writer of a song he suggested then went on to diss the show's (and his) version.
[quote]sounded pretty tuned
Gotye back tracked and called it clever . matt and criss version is still holding strong on iTunes ..almost all glee songs fall out of iTunes the next week but this song is still in the top 50
I'm old r136.
Even though I've liked the last 2 episodes of Glee not a gigantic fan but I do like Darren who said some nice things about Gotye in the press. Like someone said Criss has no say in the way the song is produced to say he didn't like the version of the song is a cheap shot...
Temper, temper, gullible R140.
Asshole, asshole, cuntable R145.
As much as it pains me to say it, I prefer the Glee version. As noted above, Gotye's sounds in parts like he's trying to be a modern Phil Collins.
I know you're hurting, R140. It's okay. I forgive you. I accept you. God forgives you. God loves you. Be well. And don't believe the hype, because it's clearly not good for you.
Take your god and shove it up your cunt, you hag.
R149, you're this committed to claiming that Darren Criss knew about Gotye before this song? Wow! You're really stupid. But God does love you.
Hey, frau, you're committed to being a stalking fat hag who believes in some magical dead Jewish zombie in the sky?
And you also continue to foist your delusional beliefs on others as a smug attempt to act superior?
Good luck with that, idiot.
You are both awful
We have all moved on to last week's great episode...
Your love is my love
Goyte was right. The autotuned Glee version sucks like a hoover. At least the original has some passion.
I like Walk Off the Earth's version best but Kimbra is also great. The posters who said Gotye sounded like Sting or (gag)Phil Collins are 100% correct...
I'm not a music snob sometimes I like artsy fartsy music and sometimes whatever makes me feel good. Hopefully never anything because its 'hip'...
I heard STIUTK several times on the radio but didn't start to like it until I saw on the tv show and then I downloaded Gotye's video. If I was Glee I would tell him Fuck You...
Don't watch Glee, but! Matt Bomer, that man has
so much talent, he sure can sing
