Finally! Anyone who reads this blog knows I feel passionately about Matt Bomer playing the role of Christian Grey. He is the perfect embodiment of how this character was described physically. He is also a phenomenal actor who has that rare ability to steal every scene he is in. You can hardly tear your eyes away from the screen when he is on camera. When I think of the hottest, sexiest, most charming man on the planet- Matt Bomer is it. First, let me give you a little background on him.
Matt Bomer is known for his role as Neal Caffrey on USA Network’s White Collar. There he plays a charming, smart, and ridiculously good looking reformed white collar criminal. He’s a consultant for the FBI’s white collar crime division and has been proven invaluable when trying to crack cases. The show is a procedural with a back story so you can watch a one off episode. The new season starts July 11.
The science fiction thriller In Time is another recent film in which Bomer appeared. In it, he plays a 105-year-old man Henry Hamilton, who gives his "time" to Justin Timberlake before committing suicide, setting the main plot into motion.
Bomer is openly gay and is married with 3 children. He graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in fine arts. Joe Manganiello and Bomer, who both star in the highly anticipated new Steven Soderberg film Magic Mike, went to college together and are good friends.
At the Magic Mike premiere on Sunday night, after Access Hollywood asked if he would be interested in the role of Christian Grey, Bomer said:
I need to read the book and see who the director is but it sounds amazing, From what I hear people are really into the story so I’ve got to check it out.
This is what fans have been waiting for! Matt Bomer is considering the role of Christian Grey – one which would inevitably be a star making role for him. Let's hope that he actually reads the book series and see's the opportunity in playing such a fascinating, complex character.
