People’s ‘Sexiest Rising Star’ Matthew Bomer

People magazine has released their annual “Sexiest Man Alive” countdown and while Johnny Depp tops their list (yet again), we are more excited about some of the newbies.

Named People’s sexiest rising star, Fox411 caught up with “White Collar” star Matthew Bomer recently, where he shared all the juicy tidbits about his character, what he thinks is sexy and what it’s like to be the son of a Dallas Cowboy.

Don’t mention Bernie Madoff around Bomer, who plays a con artist working for the FBI in exchange for freedom on the USA series.

“I did not use Bernie Madoff as inspiration,” says Bomer. “I prefer to not compare my character to him and prefer to call what my character does as “social engineering” rather than con artistry. I looked more to “Ocean’s Eleven” and even “Ferris Bueller” to see how people manipulate people and manipulate for a better life.”

Here’s another article mentioning Matt.

Matt Bomer, star of the USA Network show, “White Collar,” also appeared on “The Early Show.” He also made this year’s list.

Bomer said he’s grateful to be recognized.

Does he feel any added mojo from the title? “No,” Bomer said. “I’m still plugging away on ‘White Collar,’ and working hard on the show and trying to make a good TV show. … I’m thankful people responded to the character in the show and anything that comes from that is great.”
