The Magnificent Seven opens in theaters September 23, 2016.

Why The Last Tycoon Is the Best Vision of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Unfinished Work


Esquire has published a great interview with Matt, to promote The Last Tycoon. They’re also – in a huge agreement with the fanbase – talking about how Bomer is made for this role – “Though he’s still getting caught up on his old Hollywood history, Bomer is as debonair and tortured as the role requires“. Yeah, we all agree!

Check some excerpts of the great interview below:

So how did you get involved with The Last Tycoon, and what drew you to it?
Billy called me out of the blue in December. He brought the project up to me, and his vision for it. Like all of us, I was very familiar with Fitzgerald’s work, but it had been a while since I had read The Last Tycoon or seen the Kazan film. It sounded like the world he wanted to create, while a period piece, was very topical and interesting. I read the script, I thought it was fantastic, we sat down together, and that was that.

Now you’ve played your fair share of rogues. You got famous playing a con man. Is it more fun to be a bit evil, or more pure good?
You know, I try not to think of it as black and white, because all human beings have a shadow. We all have a great deal of admirable qualities, and we all have some that could probably be improved upon. My favorite characters, when I read them, are people with some aspects of both—that feels more human and [like] the people I’ve encountered and my own experiences of life. I like it when they have a little bit of each.

Now you filmed the pilot, and Amazon is waiting around to see what the reaction is, and then it will decide whether to order it to series or not, right?
Yeah. That’s the plan.

How are you feeling? Is this a nerve-wracking way to work? Because all you can do is get the word out and hope people see it and like it.
You know, I try not to worry about it too much. Thankfully, I have a very full life. I’m married with kids, so I have a lot of things to focus on, other projects either in post-production or pre-production, so you just do the best you can. I love that Amazon has this diplomatic process where people’s voices can be heard, and they can weigh in. I think it’s a great way to use the interconnectedness we have with the Internet. At the same time, pilots are essentially rough drafts. It’s a bit like bringing all your friends into an ultrasound and saying, “Isn’t my baby beautiful?” You can make out the rough outlines and the edges and get a good sense of what the baby is going to look like, but you won’t know until you get a chance to flesh it out. I just hope people will visit the world and enjoy what they see. For me personally, I look at it and go, “Oh that’s great, that’s cool, that did not work, I can work on that,” and you soldier forward should you be given the opportunity.

Are you resisting the urge to check in with your agent or whomever every day and go, “Okay, what are the numbers now? How about now?”
You know, I think for the first couple of days I did, and then I realized that’s just not a healthy endeavor. There’s an old saying: “There’s no sure formula for success, but the only certain formula for failure is to try to please everybody.” I think if you over-concern yourself with what people’s opinions are, I don’t think it’s really healthy for anybody. And certainly as an artist, you don’t want those voices in your head when you’re trying to make a choice for a character. You want to be operating from where you are in that space with the work you’ve done.

I don’t know if this is true or not, but there’s a long-running rumor that if you work with George Clooney and get to know him even a little, he will send you a box of what he considers the 100 best movies of all time, and he expects you to watch them all.
I can imagine no more enjoyable assignment from a director. I would love that. As a matter of fact, if George Clooney ever reads this, I want those 100 movies regardless of whether or not we work together.

49 Celebrities Honor the 49 Orlando Victims: Behind-the-Scenes


An exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at a project led by Ryan Murphy and HRC, as a parade of A-list talent paid tribute to those who died at Pulse to create a short film and push for change.

Nobody knew what to do, but everybody wanted to do something. The June 12 mass shooting that claimed 49 lives at a gay club in Orlando, Florida, unfolded more than 2,000 miles away from Los Angeles — but the grief and frustration over an increasingly familiar narrative left many people in Hollywood searching a meaningful way to respond.

The recipient of many blind offers of service was Ryan Murphy. The producer’s phone rang frequently in the days following the attack at Pulse, with one call coming from Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin. The two quickly crafted a plan to recruit 49 altruistic celebrities to memorialize each of the Orlando victims by reading a brief eulogy of their lives, editing the clips to construct a 18-minute film that will live online starting June 29.

Anger and grief were palpable during production on the video, filmed primarily over two days on the 20th Century Fox Studios lot where Murphy produces his substantial roster of shows that include American Horror Story, Scream Queens and the upcoming Katrina: American Crime Story. Drawing from their Rolodexes, Murphy and Griffin recruited talent to read the miniature biographies, also relying on CAA’s Bryan Lourd and power publicist Simon Halls.

The list of familiar faces that then showed up to participate in the project is formidable. Chris Pine, Laverne Cox, Cuba Gooding Jr., Connie Britton, Caitlyn Jenner, Matt Bomer and Angela Bassett make up just a sliver of the individuals who paid visit to the somber set.

Stop the Hate: Honoring the 49 Victims of Orlando Massacre in Ryan Murphy-Produced Tribute

For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder. On June 12, forty-nine innocent people — most of them Latinx — were killed at Pulse nightclub in Orlando simply because of who they were. It’s on all of us to keep their memories alive, and to ensure part of their legacy becomes meaningful action to end hate violence. Join the Human Rights Campaign and urge your legislator to support legislation that will ensure LGBTQ people are safe and equal in every community and find out how to support the survivors and families of the Orlando victims.
