Back when promoting The Normal Guys in London Matt did an interview to Magic Radio, and they published this video in which he talks about Lady Gaga. On this video, he just confirmed to be part of next American Horror Story season. Still no word if its just a small part (which The Last Tycoon hopefully being picked up, he will have a lot of work ahead), but the season will start being shot this Tuesday, June 7.
Matt attended last night in California, US, the Spike TV’s 10th Annual Guys Choice Awards celebrating his The Normal Heart co-star Julia Roberts. He was joined by her ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ co-star Dermot Mulroney to deliver her the Woman of the Decade Award.

Viewers can catch all of the action when “Guys Choice” airs on Spike Thursday, June 9th at 9pm ET/PT.
Matt presented this Wednesday (25) at the 37th Annual College Television Awards the The Bricker Humanitarian Award, a $4,000 cash award given to a College Television Award winner whose work best highlights a humanitarian concern. Jon Milano and Christopher Naughton from Chapman University won for “Straw Dolls.” This award was created two decades ago by the family of Attorney Seymour Bricker in honor of his commitment to philanthropy.
There was no many pictures released of the event, but you will find the video and screencaptures added in our archive.

The Last Tycoon
A co-production with TriStar Television, The Last Tycoon is written and directed by Academy Award nominee Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games), and executive produced by Ray and Christopher Keyser (Tyrant, Party of Five), who serve as showrunners, Joshua D. Maurer (Rosemary’s Baby), Alixandre Witlin (Rosemary’s Baby), and David A. Stern (Rosemary’s Baby). Mad Men’s Scott Hornbacher serves as co-executive producer of the pilot, along with Perri Kipperman (Billions). An adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last work, The Last Tycoon follows Hollywood’s Golden Boy, Monroe Stahr (Matt Bomer, White Collar) as he battles father figure and boss, Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer, Frasier) for the soul of their studio. In a world darkened by the Great Depression and the growing international influence of Hitler’s Germany, The Last Tycoon illuminates the passions, violence, and towering ambition of 1930’s Hollywood. Lily Collins (The Blind Side) stars as Cecelia Brady and noted Pulitzer-winning Fitzgerald scholar A. Scott Berg serves as consulting producer.

Long before he broke hearts as a lovably devilish ladies’ man on USA’s White Collar or shed 40 pounds for a Golden Globe–winning role as an AIDS victim in HBO’s The Normal Heart—and certainly before he gyrated alongside Channing Tatum in the Magic Mike films or played a vampire on FX’s American Horror Story: Hotel—Matt Bomer was a Texas high schooler valiantly defying any and all stereotypes of what it meant to be a man.
Was he a handsome jock or a shape-shifting thespian? A gun-toting good ol’ boy who’d been hunting since he was 8 or a gay man coming of age in one of America’s reddest states?
Well, turns out he was all of them—at least, as long as his schedule allowed it.
“Unfortunately, my senior year I left the football team because I got a play at the Alley Theater in Houston,” says the 38-year-old Bomer, who still looks back fondly on his days as a wide receiver and defensive back. “I was crazy fast,” he says. “I ran good routes, and I had good hands. I didn’t drop passes!”
