Meeting the families behind the characters of "Glee" seems to be the theme this season. We've met Mike's (Harry Shum, Jr.), Sam's (Chord Overstreet) and Emma's (Jayma Mays) parents. We've already encountered her grandmother and will soon meet Santana's (Naya Rivera) mother, as well as Rachel's (Lea Michele) two dads. Now, we're getting to know Blaine's (Darren Criss) family a little bit as well.

While we won't meet his parents, at least not at the moment, his big brother will be introduced. TVLine reports that Matt Bomer ("White Collar," ex-Ben, "Guiding Light") is close to a deal which will see him guest starring in an April episode as Blaine's sibling. And yes, he will reportedly be singing.
