Matt Bomer: ‘Last Tycoon’ could take place ‘in 1936 or 2017 seamlessly’

Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished, Hollywood-set novella, the series co-stars Kelsey Grammer, Lily Collins and Dominique McElligott. It is to premiere in its entirety Friday.

Bomer, 39, plays Monroe Stahr, a successful movie man with a congenital heart condition and a late actress wife he is trying to replace.
