Matt talks “Monty” to People Magazine

Yesterday during the PaleyFest red carpet, Matt did an interview to People Magazine about his next project, HBO’s Monty. Check it below:

When Matt Bomer signed on to play Montgomery Clift in the upcoming biopic Monty Clift, he immediately felt as though his connection to the Hollywood icon was more than skin-deep.

“I kind of saw myself in him,” Bomer told PEOPLE on the red carpet for the PaleyFest tribute to his series American Horror Story.

Of course, their physical resemblance is uncanny – something even Bomer noticed long ago.

“Even as a young kid – before obviously I knew anything about him, or even myself – I saw him on screen and I thought, ‘Oh wow he actually looks a lot like my brother,’ ” said Bomer.

But it was Clift’s story away from the big screen that really captivated Bomer.

“He was one of those really early screen icons for me to start with,” Bomer, 38, said. “Then once I learned the circumstances of his life, I realized how he was someone who did not want to be relegated to the times he lived in and was so progressive in so many ways.”

One of the earliest and best-known proponents of the immersive, naturalistic “Method” school of acting alongside Marlon Brando and James Dean, Clift quickly went from Broadway sensation to Hollywood leading man, headlining now-classic films like A Place In the Sun, From Here to Eternity and Raintree County.

But Clift’s movie star good looks were marred by a 1956 car accident that, despite cutting-edge plastic surgery at the time, altered facial features and left him with chronic medical conditions as well as drug and alcohol dependencies.
