Today’s Morning Man: Matt Bomer!
Matt is not one of my faves just because he’s so damned good looking or because he’s always been so sweet to met whenever I’ve seen him over the years.
He’s a favorite because his work on television and in film has been so varied and superb.
The Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe Award-winning actor was so captivating for six seasons on USA Network’s White Collar as con artist Neal Caffrey. I binged watched all the seasons during the pandemic and gained a deeper appreciation for Matt and the rest of the cast which included the late Willie Garson with whom Matt shared a beautiful chemistry.
Matt’s versatility was on full display in 2020 when he appeared in a recurring role on Will & Grace as Will’s boyfriend while at the same time playing a serial killer on the series The Sinner.
He was a revelation as a New York Times reporter dying of AIDS in 2014′s The Normal Heart and was robbed of an Emmy Award in my opinion. But he did win the Critics Choice Award that year and the Golden Globe.
Other strong and memorable work from Matt that I particularly liked were the films Papi Chulo, Anything, The Nice Guys, and Boys in the Band. He’s also fun – and very fit – as a stripper in Magic Mike and the sequel Magic Mike XXL .
Matt was in TV’s Doom Patrol, has appeared in several seasons of American Horror Story, and most recently was in the miniseries Echoes..
