New Matt Bomer interview by Metro.co.uk

What inspired you to become an actor?
A teacher in sixth grade who ran the theatre arts class. She was really invested in helping me out and mentoring me. It was a means of expressing myself and I liked the thrill of getting onstage and giving a voice to the crazy characters I’d created in my head. I’m from a very athletic family and I thoroughly enjoyed sports as a kid but acting was a way of expressing myself and having fun. It was something I found on my own.

Any memorable early roles?
I played Bill Sikes in Oliver. For some reason, they always gave me a fat suit in high-school productions. If there was a character who needed to be robust, they gave me a fat suit and I put on a silly voice.

What were the highs and lows of making your TV breakthrough in daytime soap opera The Guiding Light?
I’d got a part in a Broadway show then 9/11 happened and I lost the job. I’d met a casting director for a soap opera who said if I ever needed a job to let him know. I don’t regret it for a second. It was an incredible opportunity for a young actor, you have to become comfortable in front of a camera and learn how to make choices quickly. My character went though so many changes.

Such as?
I knew I wasn’t going to stay for long so I told the writers to give me crazy storylines. I started as a trust fund kid who made a bet with friends that he’d deflower the town virgin, then fell in love with her and she found out about his scheme and dumped him. Then he lost his trust fund and became a prostitute. Then his new girlfriend found out, he went crazy, kidnapped her, took her to a cabin in the woods, killed three people, told her he’d been molested by a female school teacher as a child and killed himself by injecting insulin – in front of her, her father and her new boyfriend.

Doing stripper film Magic Mike must have seemed tame in comparison?
Fear is a great motivator but it was a great experience working with Steven Soderbergh and those great actors. It was a great ensemble, everyone was very supportive.

Weren’t you molested by an extra on set?
Yeah but those were happy accidents. The extras were such a part of making that world real. They were really committed and very interactive. I wasn’t offended. If you commit to wearing next to nothing and gyrate in a woman’s face, you have to accept whatever comes your way.

Matt Bomer’s Character Chatter

In case you missed Matt on Character Chatter, Laura posted a transcript of his Q&A.

M: Hey everybody! Thank you so much for taking the time to chat tonight. I’m so excited to hear from all of you. I’ll try to get to as many questions as I can, and give some running commentary at the same time. Happy Premiere!!
Q: If you could be any other character from WC, who would you be and why?

M: hmmmm…. I’d love to play both Peter and Mozzie for an episode. Peter, because it would be fun to be on the other end of things, and Mozzie because he has the easiest work schedule and gets to be funny all the time.

M: Treat, Tim, and I had to shoot the opening scene twice because of a discrepancy in his makeup continuity.

Q: what is the thing you like the most about neal caffrey?

M: He’s incredibly complicated, but he hides most of his feelings. That’s very challenging to play as an actor, but very fun as well.

White Collar’s Matt Bomer Previews Neal’s Not-So-Perfect Island Life and Big Daddy Issues

When USA Network’s White Collar returns this Tuesday at 9/8c for Season 4, the con man is living the life in a beachfront mansion on an exotic island while romancing a local beauty (played by Alias‘ Mía Maestro). But as star Matt Bomer tells TVLine, not everything is as idyllic as it seems. And once the dapper fella makes it back to New York City, he’ll be plagued by questions about his own past.

TVLINE: How is island life treating Neal?

[Laughs] You know, it’s very Dickensian for Neal. It’s kind of the best of times, and the worst of times. The good news is he’s living the dream, and the bad news is he’s living the dream in his early 30s. So while he’s enjoying this life he’s constructed for himself, it’s also a little early in the game for him to be this retired guy on an island. He misses aspects of his collaboration with Peter (Tim DeKay) and his life back in New York, the culture and the diversity there.

TVLINE: So he’s itching to get back?

Don’t get me wrong – he’s Neal Caffrey, so he’s obviously made the absolute best of the situation he’s been given. He has the nicest pad. He has an amazing morning routine, a very leisurely life. There are aspects of that he really enjoys because they are things he fantasized about for so long. He kindled a little island romance for himself, going nice and slow on island time. Then things get interrupted, and as annoying as that is – even though he won’t admit it – there’s a welcome aspect to it as well.

TVLINE: How much of a threat is Mekhi Phifer’s FBI agent to Neal?

We don’t really realize what a huge threat he is until the second episode. We hear about how dangerous he is and how renegade he is, how it’s martial law with him in a way. He sets the terms of what’s legal and what’s not. Neal and Mozzie (Willie Garson) take that with a grain of salt until they encounter him and realize, “OK, he means business.” There’s something very specific that happens in the second episode that I think will make people take his character very seriously, very quickly.

Matt’s E! Online interview

“I never really endeavored to hide anything,” Bomer, 34, told me this weekend while promoting his new movie, Magic Mike. “But there were times I chose not to relegate my history to the back page of a magazine, which to me is sort of akin to putting your biography on a bathroom wall.”

Not that he dismisses the importance of being an out actor.

“I had somebody from the military approach me a few weeks ago just saying how this helps people, affects people,” Bomer said. “It brought me to tears.”

I go so far as to suggest that he could be saving young gay people’s lives. “I hope so,” he said. “They need saving, certainly in this day and age as much as ever—no matter how much we think we’ve progressed.”

Matt Bomer on the Allure of His White Collar Con Man Role and Getting Glee-ful

TVLINE: Do you see something like Magic Mike and a growing movie career as a positive or a hindrance to your Emmy chances — as well as to White Collar‘s future?
It’s always good to get your face out there, especially if you’re working with somebody like [Magic Mike director] Steven Soderbergh. I don’t think that hurts. I certainly don’t think it’ll hurt the show. The great thing about getting to do a cable series is we’re on for six months and we’re off for six months. I’ve been trying to use my hiatus to work with filmmakers like [In Time director/writer] Andrew Niccol and Steven Soderbergh that I really believe in, in smaller roles, rather than taking a lead in something big and studio and splashy – not that Magic Mike hasn’t become studio and splashy. [Laughs] But when I signed on to do it, it was a $5 million independent movie. I don’t think it’s a bad thing to go out there and challenge yourself as an actor.

TVLINE: We don’t have to worry about you leaving White Collar any time soon, right?
No, I consider White Collar my home base. I’m so lucky to get to play a character that’s very multifaceted and the writers take risks on and never get into a staid process with. They’re always challenging themselves and, thusly, me as an actor. As long as they continue to do that, I’m happy. I love my job on White Collar. I won’t be leaving it any time soon.

TVLINE: USA Network shows tend to be written off when it comes to Emmys, because they’re considered lighter fare. Do you think that’s a fair characterization?
I don’t think it’s fair because, to me, they are dramatic shows with elements of humor. As long as that doesn’t get overly quirky or too hokey, that’s the way life is to me. I don’t know anybody who walks through life all the time in the doldrums, constantly serious and morose. But that’s become what we generalize as drama. I’m really lucky to get to work on a show that has elements of humor. But when you’re comparing that to – I won’t list anything specifically – a lot of the shows that are pretty much straight drama the entire time, it runs the risk of being categorized as something else. But I don’t really think it is.

TVLINE: Neal Caffrey has to be one of the funnest characters to play.
He is. It’s so rare, especially as a younger actor, to find a role where it’s not just one-dimensional and it’s not just a stock leading man. He is smart, intelligent, slick. He has grace under fire. He’s excellent under pressure. He’s on point. He’s firing on all cylinders. But at the same time, he’s really a 4-year-old. He has terrible impulse control. He makes really irrational decisions, especially when it comes to anything romantically-inclined. He is a hopeless romantic to a fault. … It’s a real dream of a role to get to play. More and more, as I play the role over the years, I come to find so many things in my life that I thought were futile or silly at the time, that I may have studied or read about or practiced, led up to this opportunity for me.

60 Seconds With America’s Hottest Dad (AKA Matt Bomer)

Tell us about how you find a suit — a lot of dudes don’t know how to find the perfect one.

“Well, one thing I’ve certainly learned from being on the show is the importance of a tailor. If you like a suit, just because it doesn’t fit you off the rack doesn’t mean that you should give up on it. A good tailor can make anything work. For me, it depends from designer to designer: I feel like a lot of times I’m picking something for a specific event so that will be my guide process to which designer I wear. If I wanna pop of color, I’ll go Paul Smith; if I want something a little more traditional that I’ll feel more confident and comfortable in, I’ll go Tom Ford… it just depends.”

And what about for everyday wear, who are some of your favorite designers?

“Casual look? I love the stuff that Michael Bastian does for GANT. Especially in the summertime, the colors he uses…it fits well and it’s fun, you know? It says summertime to me. But in my personal life, I’m a jeans and T-shirt kind of guy. I really like hoodies and jeans and tees, but when I’m stepping it out, it just depends. I love Billy Reid, he has a lot of great stuff this summer.”

Summer Heats Up With the Boys of USA

A cop, a con man and a fake lawyer walk into a bar…and, no joke, every head turns. Still, it’s nothing new to see the trio in question — Michael Ealy, Matt Bomer and Patrick J. Adams — with other, equally good-looking buddies. On the cops-in-therapy freshman series Common Law, Ealy’s been sparking with costar Warren Kole as mismatched LAPD partners Travis Marks and Wes Mitchell. Bomer’s White Collar schemer Neal Caffrey has spent the past three seasons bantering and buddying up to Tim DeKay’s straitlaced Fed Peter Burke. And the SAG-nominated Adams is about to kick off his second season as legal-eagle poser Mike Ross opposite Gabriel Macht’s slickster attorney Harvey Specter on Suits. Together, this holy trinity of cheekbones and charm exemplify the easy-to-look-at and easier-to-love attitude of USA’s sunniest, funniest dramedies. Over drinks at a Manhattan hot spot the day before their high-seas cover shoot, the fellas shot the breeze with us about the network’s “blue skies” aesthetic, their on-screen sidekicks and the pitch-perfect cross-over episode.

TV Guide Magazine: That comedy-drama vibe?
Bomer: Everybody talks about the “blue skies” thing, but I find our shows to be like life. I don’t think anybody walks through life serious and stone-faced the entire time. People want to laugh.

TV Guide Magazine: Chemistry helps, too.
Bomer: I tested with Tim [DeKay], yeah. We hit it off right away.

TV Guide Magazine: You could actually be siblings.
Adams: A lot of people thought the show was about [brothers]…
Bomer: There goes the Season 2 mythology!

TV Guide Magazine: Speaking of mythology, we hear the new White Collar season will explore Neal’s backstory and the identity of his father.
Bomer: I can neither confirm nor deny those rumors.

TV Guide Magazine: Actually you can, since (executive producer) Jeff Eastin is the one who told me.
Bomer: Oh, OK then. Yes, we will be! [Laughs]

TV Guide Magazine: And the first two episodes filmed in Puerto Rico?
Bomer: We had an amazing time. It was so great to take the show to a new location. The rhythm of New York is so specific, so to slow it down to island time was really interesting.

TV Guide Magazine: As our Boys of Summer, any summer traditions you follow?
Bomer: I work during the week, fly home to L.A. to see my family on the weekends. Rinse and repeat.
Adams: Do you fly back every weekend?
Bomer: Pretty much. We always get a place outside the city for a few weeks, too. Somewhere in the country near water. So we’ll barbecue, hang out, have a good time.

For more on USA’s boys of summer, pick up this week’s issue of TV Guide Magazine, on newsstands Thursday, June 14!

Matt Bomer at Park & Bond

We think of Park & Bond as the Intersection of Men & Style. To celebrate Father’s Day, we’re exploring a more perilous crossroads, that of fatherhood & style. The New York dads manage to navigate it with elegance, individuality, and ease. From stylish leading man (and father of three!) Matt Bomer, to the brilliant photographer Ben Watts, to the legendary journalist Gay Talese, these gents prove that being a dad doesn’t have to mean wearing dad jeans.

With the omnipresent ads for White Collar, his USA show about a rakish but well-dressed con man who crosses over to the other side to help the feds, it’s arguable that Matt Bomer has done as much as any man in recent memory to raise the stock of the four-in-hand tie knot. It’s definitely proven influential to his son. “Our oldest has a fascination with ties,” Bomer says. “We’ll be going to a family dinner and he’ll come downstairs in a pair of shorts, a T-shirt, and a blue blazer with a tie. We let him rock that.” He and husband Simon Halls, a Hollywood publicist who counts Tom Ford among his clientele, are the parents to three: a seven-year-old and four-year-old twins. (What’s that like? “Busy,” he says. “With three boys, you’re constantly running around.”)

Bomer and his father bonded over sports—as a teenager, he played baseball, football, soccer, and tennis; swam, dove, and ran track—and sports have forged a bond between Bomer and his own son, too. (He calls the first Forty Niners game he took his oldest to, “One of the highlights of my life.”) He’s come to emulate his father in more ways than he might have expected. “One of the amazing things that happens when you’re a parent is you find yourself sounding exactly like your parents did. Not only sounding like them, but saying the things that you hated hearing when you were a kid,” he laughs. They diverge a bit on matters of personal style: the elder Bomer “really buys into the mythos of being a Texan” and “has moments with the ten-gallon hat,” while the younger cites Alain Delon and Marcello Mastroianni as influences.

Glee’s Best Guest Star Ever? Matt Bomer Dishes on His Debut – and Prospects of Joining Season Four

1. Matt Bomer Is More Than Just a Pretty Face: He’s got blue eyes, too, people! (Kidding) You White Collar fans know well that Bomer can handle drama and action with the best of ‘em, but his role as Blaine’s brother Cooper is his best comedic TV work yet. Work that is definitely Emmy worthy. “It was one of the most fun experiences I have ever had, truly,” Bomer tells me. “I mean, [executive producers] Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan gave me a real gift, comedic gift of a character to get to play, so just getting to do the scenes they wrote was a blast.”

2. Cooper Anderson Is So Wrong He’s Right: As the international spokesperson for a credit-rating commercial, Cooper (Bomer) believes he is a great mentor to the New Directions kids, and teaches them that pointing and yelling lines is the best way to convey real emotion. (Take notes, people!) “It was fun to play somebody who has such strong convictions and opinions that are all completely ill-founded and misguided,” Bomer tells me. “But at the heart of it, you know he’s really trying to look out for his brother and gave him some of the slings and arrows of the entertainment industry and he’s trying to help.”

3. Darren and Matt “Clicked”: “He’s incredibly talented but also a really great guy,” Bomer says of his onscreen bro. “He’s completely accessible, and when I got the job, we went out to dinner to talk about our characters but also to just get to know each other, because in order to play brothers you have to have a sort of inherent understanding of the person. And he was thankfully a great professional and totally open to becoming friends so that it would translate onto the screen. Interestingly enough, I felt a very brotherly kinship with him. When we sing together, our voices seem to blend well together so it all worked out great. He’s just a fantastic guy.” And fantastically wet and shirtless in this episode, FYI. There is a boxing-shower montage you Darren Criss fans won’t be mad at! Get those freeze-frame fingers ready.
