Matt Bomer, John Carroll Lynch to Star in Transgender Drama ‘Anything’


Back in May we published about a new project Matt was just finished filming, titled “Anything”. We had only a few informations about it back then, specially about which part Matt would be playing.

This week media outlets started publishing about it, and Bomer will be playing a transgender sex worker.

“Anything” is based on McNeil’s play of the same name. Lynch plays a man who is suicidal over the death of his wife and moves from Mississippi to Los Angeles, where he can be under the watchful eye of his protective sister, played by Tierney. He then begins an intense friendship with Bomer’s character, a transgendered sex worker. The unlikely new couple must reconcile their vastly different backgrounds as they fill the void in each other’s lives.

The movie also stars Maura Tierney, Micah Hauptman, Margot Bingham, and Melora Hardin. Mark Ruffalo and Great Point Media’s Robert Halmi and Jim Reeve are executive producing.

Sadly, reactions on social media to the news that Matt Bomer is set to portray a trans sex worker have been been anything but positive. Hollywood has a history of casting cisgender actors as trans—see: Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl, Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club, and Jeffrey Tambor in Transparent—and while those actors, including Bomer, are incredible, the trans community outlined the problems in casting a cis actor.

On Wednesday afternoon Mark Ruffalo addressed the backlash around Bomer’s casting on Twitter. “To the Trans community,” the actor wrote. “I hear you. It’s wrenching to you see you in this pain. I am glad we are having this conversation. It’s time.”

Matt didn’t comment on the matter. No words yet on when Anything will be released.

Matt, John Boy is terrifying without saying anything, just in his demeanour. Was that great to bring to life?
Matt Bomer: Oh yeah, I mean it is always fun to paint with different colours and play these kind of roles you aren’t typically thin-sliced as, and to do it with these people. I am essentially a fan boy who is lucky to be along for the ride. Shane and Joel are a huge part of my cinematic upbringing: to watch two of my favourite actors create this incredible symbiotic comedic performance where one doesn’t work without the other and every take is different, it was just an incredible education for me.

RC: I could have made it work without Ryan (laughter).

We have been talking about the actors, what was it like, Matt, to throw a 13 year old girl through a window?
MB: Angorie is such a consummate professional that, you know, it was the first thing I filmed and I had to throw a young girl through a window and I immediately felt the need to ingratiate myself to these young girls, and that I was a parent and it was just pretend and they just stared at me blankly and were like, so? Throw me through the window, what you got? That’s it? I want another take! So yeah, they took me to school.
