Did you ever worry as an actor, that taking on the role of a stripper can glorify an industry that legitimises the objectification of men and women?
It’s a very real story. I am so grateful that people responded they way they did to the film, Channing’s story and Matt’s role, all the guys actually but when I signed on I thought it was a really small independent film that would be a small gritty story that Steven Soderbergh was directing and then it became something very different which is amazing and completely surprising. I’m so glad that Channing decided to tell the story and I got to be a part of it.
To me Steven Soderbergh is one of the artistic heirs to Robert Altman, was it difficult to adapt to that highly naturalistic, but stylised perspective?
It was fantastic, working with Steven Soderbergh, it was a dream come true and it was a great group of guys. It was like getting to be in a fraternity, which I never got to do in college so it was like entering into an endeavour that was quite intimidating (laughs) but everyone banded together and we all stayed after our scenes were done to watch and support everyone else. It was one of the greatest ensemble experiences of my career thus far.
If you could appear in any other TV show…?
Gosh that’s good, well drama definitely Homeland which I enjoy a lot but comedy, there’s a show here called Portlandia, which I’m not sure if it plays in the UK as it’s very cult here and it might be idiosyncratic to the States, or maybe Modern Family!
So what can fans expect from series three of White Collar?
“What I love about series 3 is that Neal’s conflict goes from an external one (to find Kate, and avenge her death) to an internal one which is ‘do I stay or do I go?’ and the tryst dynamics between he and Peter get thrown completely out of whack this season so a lot of it is about them sussing each other out and Neal figuring out if he’s going to be a career criminal or does he really have value and worth at the FBI.”
Have you ever been conned in real life?
“Absolutely, I think anyone who moves to New York as a young twenty-something has been conned one way or another! I was sold a pair of dud speakers in college once. It made me open my eyes to the world around me and, not be a cynic but, certainly always look for the deepest agenda in any situation.”
White Collar is not the kind of show you can multi-task in front of. You have to give it your full attention!
The writers are very smart and very respectful of the audience. That’s one of the things I love about working on the show — when I pick up the scripts I’ll have to read it two or three times to keep my wits about me.
A lot of people make the assumption that telly is dumbing down. But isn’t it smarter than it’s ever been?
I think so. I’m really happy with the state of television, specifically on cable [White Collar airs on the USA Network in America], because there’s a bit less bureaucracy and they don’t worry about every demographic. We have a bit more freedom to tell the story we want to tell.
Matt Bomer is going up, up and away — into the world of animation. The mild-mannered White Collar star has landed the lead in the upcoming movie Superman: Unbound. Coming this spring to DVD, Blu-ray and On Demand, the film features an all-star cast, including Fringe’s John Noble as the world-destroying alien Brainiac and Castle costars Stana Katic and Molly Quinn as Superman’s girlfriend, Lois Lane, and cousin, Kara (aka Supergirl), respectively.
Based on a 2008 Action Comics storyline by Geoff Johns, Superman: Unbound — the latest in a series of movie adaptations from Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment — pits the Man of Steel against Brainiac, an alien who attacks planets, shrinks one city small enough to fit in a bottle, then destroys the rest of the planet. “He’s the ultimate collector,” says director/supervising producer James Tucker (Batman: The Brave and the Bold). “He says what he’s doing is the name of science and ultimate knowledge, but really he just wants stuff and he doesn’t want anyone else to have access to it.”
In the film’s second story thread Superman struggles to relate to the women in his life. As his romance with Lois heats up (in his secret identity as Clark Kent), he worries that she could be in jeopardy if his enemies discover their connection. And his paternal instincts drive him to be overprotective of the teenage Kara — despite the fact that she has super abilities on par with his.
Bomer took on this new identity with ease. “He had a jovial energy that was a little counter to what we usually do with Superman,” Tucker says. “But he also had that decency in his voice that Superman really needs no matter which way you go with him.”
Check out the interview and behind the scenes exclusive with Matt along with Liv Tyler for their upcoming film “Space Station 76″ that aired on E! News tonight. Thanks to Susjane and Laura for the tip!
PS: Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and have a safe and happy upcoming New Year!
Akiva Goldsman has already locked in most of the primary cast for his directorial debut Winter’s Tale, but is bolstering the line-up with Matt Bomer, Lucy Griffiths and the legendary Hitchcock veteran Eva Marie Saint.
Tale, adapted by Goldsman himself from Mark Helprin’s novel, follows what happens when a thief (Colin Farrell) breaks into a mansion in Manhattan and falls for the dying young woman (Jessica Brown Findlay) he finds there. But that’s just one aspect of the book, which flits between 19th Century New York and the present day.
Also on board are William Hurt, Russell Crowe and Will Smith, though the latter two will take on smaller roles as a favour to Goldsman.
Bomer and Griffiths are set to play Farrell’s parents (in flashback, naturally, given their ages), while Saint’s role is being kept shrouded in mystery for now. Goldsman aims to kick off filming next month.
Bomer, who is usually found in US TV drama White Collar, enjoyed success this summer as one the strippers in Magic Mike. Griffiths, who has mostly been known for Robin Hood and Collision over here, appeared in the most recent season of True Blood. She’ll also crop up in The Numbers Station. Saint, meanwhile, has largely retired from acting recently, though she did appear in Superman Returns back in 2006.
