Matt Bomer’s new film “B.O.O.”

DreamWorks Animation is hard at work filling out the voice casts for two of its upcoming animated features with big name stars joining the ranks of both “B.O.O. (Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations)” and “Penguins of Madagascar.” In two separate scoops, The Wrap reports that Matt Bomer and Rashida Jones will join Seth Rogen and Melissa McCarthy in ‘B.O.O.’ while John Malkovich and Benedict Cumberbatch will become part of “Penguins of Madagascar,” an offshoot of the bizarrely popular “Madagascar” franchise. DreamWorks Animation has always had a history of casting insanely popular, of-the-moment stars in its animated features, and these decisions seem to reinforce that.

In ‘B.O.O.,’ Rogen (according to The Wrap), “stars as a new ghost named Jackson Moss who works as an agent at B.O.O., a top-secret government agency that protects humans from evil hauntings. When he and his partner Watts (McCarthy) uncover a plot to destroy B.O.O., they must use their skills to defeat the agency’s Most Wanted Haunter and his powerful ghost army, and save the world.” Sounds needlessly convoluted! According to the same report, “Jones will play Rogen’s ex-wife, while Bomer will play her new husband, who’s the perfect step-dad to Rogen’s son.”

The movie will be directed by Anthony Leonidis, whose previous film “Igor” set the world record for number of S&M jokes in a movie supposedly made for children, from a script by Tom Wheeler, who wrote the under-appreciated “Puss in Boots” for DreamWorks Animation. Bomer has roles coming up in both “A Winter’s Tale” and “A Normal Heart,” while it has recently been announced that Jones will be leaving “Parks and Recreation” in the middle of next season.

“The Penguins of Madagascar” is currently scheduled for a March 27th 2015 release date while “B.O.O. (Bureau of Otherworldly Operations)” spooks theaters nationwide on June 5th 2015.

Matt Bomer Birthday Project 2013

Since Matt will be turning 36 years old on October 11th, it’s time to get started on his annual birthday project!

This year, we’ll be creating a video filled with all your own videos wishing Matt a happy birthday. My talented online friend Dann will be creating the video again, as she did such a wonderful job last year.

In order to participate, you just need to send us a 15 second video wishing Matt a happy birthday. It would be wonderful if you could take the video outdoors with some nice scenery in the background. Please make sure you have good lighting with no distracting background noise.

The deadline for the birthday project is October 4th. That way, Dann will have enough time to prepare the video before the big day. It will be uploaded to YouTube so Matt can view it easier, but it can be unlisted to protect everyone’s privacy. If you don’t feel comfortable sending in a video, you can participate in our 2nd birthday project (see below), or can leave your birthday wishes in the comments on October 11th.

In order to submit your 15 second video, please email it to (DEADLINE REACHED) with “Matt Bomer Bday Project” as the subject. We’ll send you an email back to confirm it has been accepted. Please do your best to keep it close to 15 seconds. If you are way over, we would feel bad asking you to redo it.

Our 2nd present for Matt is to send him a birthday book filled with postcards from all over the world. We would prefer you choose a postcard with some scenery on it, to represent where you live. In the message area of the postcard, please write your birthday greetings to Matt. In the address area of the postcard, you can leave it blank if you’re sending it inside another envelope. Otherwise, please mail it to the following address:


Whether you’re sending us a video, mailing in your postcard, or both, please be respectful to Matt by not gushing all about how gorgeous he is. I’m sure he would appreciate that!

If you have any questions or concerns, you can comment here, or send us an email using the address above. On Matt’s birthday, I’ll direct him to this site as I have done each year and will let everyone know his response. The birthday book will be mailed to him, and I’ll make sure he personally receives it.

Thank you for reading, and we look forward to seeing your submissions!

– Kelly & Dann

Exclusive Gallery Update

I have finally added 123 exclusive photos taken by myself while watching “White Collar” film on May 29th and May 31st. I apologize for the delay in getting these added! I’ve been keeping really busy with work since I got back on June 1st. It was so wonderful to finally meet Sharif Atkins in person, and also getting to meet Tim DeKay again. They were both super kind in spending time chatting and taking photos with us. At the end of filming on March 29th, I also got to meet Matt again and had maybe a 30 second chat while taking a photo with him. He’s quite the busy guy, but I’m hoping one day I’ll get to have an actual conversation with him. Please do not post these exclusive photos elsewhere. Thanks for reading this, and hope you like them!
