I added photos of Matt at the Lacoste/GQ Super Bowl Party tonight.
I added photos of Matt at DIRECTV’S Seventh Annual Celebrity Beach Bowl today.
Update! I created a video consisting of Matt’s highlights from the game. I had some issues with getting my video editing program to work properly, so I apologize for the scene transitions not being the greatest quality.
Check out these videos as well:
“Characters Unite month is growing exponentially this year, because there is still an immense need in this country for greater tolerance, respect and acceptance,” said Toby Graff, USA’s senior vp public affairs. “We’re extremely proud to increase awareness and inspire action to address all forms of discrimination, whether it’s based on a person’s race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or ability.”
Public service announcements, as part of an “I Won’t Stand For” campaign including USA stars Matt Bomer, Peter Gallagher, Dule Hill, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres, will follow episodes of Necessary Roughness and Suits. The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive first look at Bomer’s PSA on bullying.

Here is a full video of Matt on the Rachael Ray Show today.
Matt is featured in the February/March 2013 issue of DA MAN Magazine. I have added 23 scans, and will replace them with higher quality versions soon. Please show your support for Matt by purchasing his issue! I recommend using Zinio, but his issue is not appearing on there just yet. I would check back in a day or two.
Update! The scans have been replaced with higher quality versions. They were a bit of a challenge to get, so please link back to the site instead of uploading them elsewhere.
I would also like to thank Matt for all the kind words he said about all his fans and our birthday project video last year! We’re so very proud of you, and will continue to support you as an actor and as an individual. Thanks again to all the fans around the world for participating (including Dann who created the video) and making his birthday so special.
DA: We saw a lot of videos and projects that fans created for your birthday last October. What crosses your mind when you see those videos?
MB: I don’t cry a lot, but I’m not gonna lie, I cried when I saw the fan video from my birthday last year. I’m so blown away by the fans, and so grateful. They’ve stuck by me through thick and thin, and that means more to me than I could ever express in words. At times I feel like they believe in me more than I believe in myself, and that’s bolstered me through lots of stormy weather. When you’ve been doing a job for four years, a lot of times you have to dig deep to stay motivated as you want to. The fans are always there as that motivation for me. No matter how tired or stressed I am, I will always give my best for them.
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.
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.
