Matt Bomer on Playing a Stripping Ken Doll and Getting Licked in Magic Mike
Your friend and Magic Mike co-star Joe Manganiello guest-stars in an upcoming episode of White Collar. He asks you at one point, “Do you like strip clubs?” and then he takes you to one. Had you done Magic Mike already when you shot this?
No, and we didn’t know that we would be. How crazy is that? [Chuckles.] I didn’t know we’d be going down the Dionysian rabbit hole together. We had no idea. It was literally synchronicity. But I’ve known Joe for fifteen years. Having him in Magic Mike made it a lot easier. He made me feel a lot more comfortable.
You guys went to college together — when you were doing musical theater at Carnegie Mellon. So you already have a dance background …
Yeah, definitely a very different kind of dance! [Someone asks if he means pole dancing.] Not pole dancing. I couldn’t do that! Women do different routines. Male strip clubs are more of a show. The production value was actually surprisingly high. The difference between men at strip clubs and women at strip clubs is that when women go, they want more of an experience. They also go in packs, and they go to laugh. But hey, it’s high time we turn the tables and objectify some men! And we’re all different types. Variety is the spice of life! It’s not just beefcake. We needed a skinny man, too! But I think there will be some surprises in there, and some heart. It’s very Altman-esque, the way the stories come together, and showing that world a lot like Boogie Nights and Saturday Night Fever.
‘White Collar’ Duo Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay Say Season-Ending Cliffhanger Is ‘Biggest’ One Yet
After USA Network launched a two-weeklong digital mystery that asked just that question, stars Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay remained mum on tonight’s resolution, but offered another eye-opening tease. That the past midseason and season finales (i.e. Kate’s plane explosion, Elizabeth’s kidnapping) may pale in comparison to the season 3 ender.
“All we can say is the cliffhanger for the end of season 3 is, in our opinion, the biggest cliffhanger to date,” DeKay told The Hollywood Reporter during winter Television Critics Assoc. press tour. “Which says a lot.”
THR: What was Tim like as a director? (DeKay directed an upcoming baseball episode, airing February, which THR broke in August.)
Bomer: Everything I hoped for. I knew he was going to be great because I watched him over the past year and a half. While he’s still the work he always does, he’s also paying attention to things visually. He did justan amazing job wearing both hats, and it was such a natural fit. It was a blast. It made me want to do great work for him. It was such a perfect episode for him to direct.
DeKay: It takes place in Yankee Stadium for baseball. When Matt and I work together we don’t direct each other necessarily. But we do bounce things off of each other. There was a joy for me as a director to watch Matt on the monitor work with other actors in a scene because I don’t get to do that. I’m either in the trailer or the scene itself so I did it a lot. Some things I don’t really see until it airs.
THR: Was there something that you discovered during that experience?
Bomer: I knew I was going to love it from a collaborative standpoint. When you’re on the right track, so many things fall into place. The storyline was baseball-themed and he had such a history with that. The fact that we were the first production ever to get to shoot in the new Yankee Stadium. Everything came into place. It felt right.
DeKay: The thing that I discovered was how fast we moved as a production shooting episodes.
THR: Did you have a moment where you close to losing it?
DeKay: No. Before I did it, I said to myself, “Make that moment happen. Make sure to trust the machine that’s already moving and the crew and the cast.” There were times when I wanted to freak out.
Bomer, joking: There was that time when you started balling. He didn’t make a big deal. I found him in his trailer. I put his head on my shoulder and said, “Tim,” I rocked him a little bit, “it’s going to be OK.”
Here are some videos from Matt’s Q&A he did yesterday in New York, NY. Thanks SPN7191 and Brklyngurl for uploading them! If anyone has any photos they would like to donate, please let me know and you will also be credited for them.

Tim DeKay and Matt Bomer Preview White Collar’s Winter Season
Con man Neal Caffrey was a (charming) bad boy last year, keeping secrets from his partner and pal, FBI Agent Peter Burke. But his naughty behavior is our reward as USA Network’s White Collar resumes Season 3 this Tuesday at 10/9c with a tense winter opener. TVLine chatted with Tim DeKay and Matt Bomer about the new run of episodes, the latest obstacle that threatens their onscreen relationship, diva antics on the set (we kid!) and the stories they’d pitch for each other’s characters.
TVLine: Can you describe the winter season in one sentence?
Matt Bomer: Fast, furious, fraught with tension and suspenseful.
Tim DeKay: Period.
Matt Bomer: Ellipses.
Tim DeKay: [Laughs] It’s true. It is fast. Buckle your seat belts! We start off right from where we left off at the end of the midseason [finale] and then at the end of the episode, there’s another cliffhanger. It’s not as if we’re, “OK, see you at the desk tomorrow.” No, it’s, “What?!” So it’s fast. [Snaps fingers] It never stops. It’s relentless.
TVLine: Neal stole this treasure, lied about it and inadvertently got Elizabeth kidnapped. How will that affect Peter and Neal’s relationship?
Matt Bomer: That would be the “fraught with tension” portion in my description. Their relationship is definitely as strained as it’s ever been and actually comes to a physical confrontation at one point. But Peter also knows he needs Neal to help him out, and Neal cares a great deal about Elizabeth, so he’s going to do everything he can to help her, as well. So as dark and deep as they go, I think they always… They’re going to come back to good at some point.
Matt Bomer on TV Bromances & “Magic Mike” Thongs & Boundaries
AfterElton.com: One thing that I love about White Collar is you really see how invested Neal is personally in this world with Peter (Tim DeKay) and the FBI and how that constantly challenges him considering who he used to be and who he is now. Do you think he’s just totally moving away from his con artist past? Can he?
Matt Bomer: What makes [series creator] Jeff Eastin a great writer is that the first two seasons Neal’s conflict was always external. ‘Where is Kate? How can I find her? How can I save her?’ And then the second season was all about, ‘How do I avenge her death and get to the bottom of what created all this?’ And this season it’s been an internal conflict. “Do I stay or do I go?” Is it nature or is it nurture? Is it fight or is it flight? And so that’s been really fun to get to play and obviously Jeff Eastin does a great job of just keeping congruity in his themes and just making every episode stay on theme [and] by the end of these six episodes, we definitely get a big cliffhanger in terms of that. He makes a decision. But I think that once Elizabeth (Peter’s wife, played by Tiffani Thiessen) became involved and he realized how personal it was getting and how the fact that he had these personal relationships could cost him in terms of this job and he might even be bringing danger into these people’s live, it made him reconsider things.
AE: And now that he has a chance of losing that ankle bracelet and truly be free I’m guessing that’s a big part of what’s to come.
MB: Yeah, it sort of comes in the vehicle of Beau Bridges, who has very specific plans for Neal’s future and that obviously affects both Neal and Peter in different ways and it sort of influences what kind of decisions he’s going to make.
‘White Collar’ Stars Tim DeKay and Matt Bomer Building Green
The names Tim DeKay and Matt Bomer may sound familiar, as they should, since they are the hit stars of USA’s “White Collar.” When they aren’t playing an FBI agent and a crook turned government asset, they are taking care of the earth by going green when it comes to their homes.
When DeKay isn’t busy filming, he is taking time to build a new green home “and we’re going completely green.”
“The house that’s there is beyond help, and instead of demolishing it we’re deconstructing it, taking it apart and sending everything that’s salvageable to Habitat for Humanity and things like that,” the 48-year-old actor revealed.
Bomer, 34, who is currently one of the hottest rising actors in Hollywood, is also incorporating greenness into his lifestyle. He plans on installing solar panels for his pool and gave eco-friendly Christmas gifts to the children in his family this year. Each child got a reusable water bottle with their name on it. How fun!
“Rather than waste a bunch of plastic bottles, they have their own canteens,” he said.
