Wow: We now have 20,000+ images in the image gallery!
PS: I somehow missed Matt’s last scene in “Guiding Light” Episode 1/10/03 and re-uploaded it here.
I won an auction on Ebay for several Soap Opera Weekly magazine clippings featuring Matt. Enjoy!
I also took the time to transcribe the articles:
My dad’s office watches the show every day. They’re very supportive that way. As far as my mom is concerned, she always rolls with the punches. Let’s face it, Ben’s never been a choirboy. I know that sometimes she leaves the room when certain scenes come on and, frankly, I don’t blame her. They’re just glad I have a cool storyline.
I also added this lengthy article several days ago.
“We asked Jordana to come in and read with ten actors a day,” Fuller continues. “We did that for about a week. And when Matt Bomer came in, you could just feel the chemistry. You could see that Chrissie was in love with Eric and Eric was in love with her. Matt was also able to convey the feeling that he’d been in Vietnam.”
A graduate of Carnegie-Mellon University’s prestigious drama program, Bomer prepared for the film by watching several movies about Vietnam and reading Born on the Fourth of July to give him “a detailed account of what is was like for someone injured in the war, having to come back home. It was a good starting point in terms of preparing to play Eric, to understand the sense of alienation these guys go through, while trying to keep everything together.”
During production Bomer also used R. Lee Ermey as a research source. “I spoke with R. Lee pretty extensively,” Bomer says of the former Marine. “He was very helpful anytime I had a question.”
After Matt Bomer’s audition with Jordana Brewster, Michael Bay turned to the actress and asked her, “Did you like him?” Her response was simple, “I loved him.” And that was it; the foursome was complete.
I added 19 photos of Matt filming “White Collar” on the streets of Manhattan late last night.
White Collar star MATT BOMER on his favorite summer activity:
”Barbecue. You can take the boy out of Texas, but you can’t take the Texas out of the boy. I have my own special sauce that I make, I like to get friends over, people swimming in the pool, enjoying themselves, a little alcoholic beverage. Whatever it takes to relax.”

On June 28th, Matt attended the 10th Annual Trevor New York Summer Gala in New York, NY.
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. The Trevor Project operates the only accredited, nationwide, around-the-clock crisis and suicide prevention helpline for LGBTQ youth.
I will be on the lookout for more photos from the event. Thanks Lynne for the tip!
If you think Matt Bomer is crush-worthy wearing an expertly tailored suit as con-man Neal Caffrey on USA’s White Collar, wait until you see him in jeans and a t-shirt in our Summer Must List Issue. Bomer’s charm, smooth moves, and piercing blue eyes added up to him being named our Must Summer Crush. Needless to say, we were pretty excited to talk to him for our special double issue about White Collar, his favorite summer memory, and what’s he’s Musting after himself this summer.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: There’s a lot of chemistry among the cast, especially between you and Tim DeKay. Was that instantaneous?
MATT BOMER: I think it was certainly with Tim and I from the get-go when we tested together. We spend a good portion of the day keeled over, laughing. That’s not a typical experience on sets, so we all feel really grateful to have a set that appreciates humor and allows it. When you work crazy TV hours, you got to have a good sense of humor.
What’s it like to film in New York City?
It’s amazing. New York City is really a character on the show. On so many shows, you get the gritty, dark, dirty corners of New York, and we celebrate the city. We shoot up. We’re looking up at buildings and seeing the blue sky. We also get to see the great upper crust aspects of the city. Multimillion-dollar brownstones, chandeliers that are six stories high, places that even if you’ve lived in New York for years, you don’t really get to see. We’re a crime show, but there aren’t a lot of guns or sex or nudity. It’s pretty clean.
Neal is such a suave guy. What does it take to be that much of a charmer?
Confidence. It’s a big part of the social engineering game. Presence as well, just being able to interact with people and thin slice them very well and figuring out what pushes their buttons and what charms them. Underneath all that, Neal is a die-hard romantic whose weak spot is his romantic life.
What will we see with Neal’s love life?
The love of his life died in [last year’s] season finale, so there’s a part of him that’s really obviously crushed by that. He’s also a very proactive guy so he’s not going to sit around and cry about it. He’s going to find out who did it and how best to avenge her death. That’s a big struggle for him this season. But the fun thing about Neal is he never passes up a chance to flirt. No matter what’s going on, if there’s somebody cute, he’s going to make the most of it. It makes the day a little more interesting.
Now that it’s officially summer, what’s one of your favorite summer memories?
I used to go to sports camp every summer. I’d make a lot of new friends and it was all athletic. It was basically a place for parents to send their kids to run out all their summer energy for two weeks. My parents knew if they kept me active, I’d stay out of trouble.
So you got into a lot of trouble other seasons of the year?
Oh, I’m just going to leave it at that!
You’re on our Must List, but what’s on yours?
[The movie] The Kids Are All Right is amazing. The performances are insanely good. Julianne Moore is going to wreck you. This is the best I’ve ever seen her, and I’ve seen everything she’s ever done. I like the story and I think it’s a great alternative to the big summer popcorn blockbusters.
Inception is my big studio movie of the summer. That looks amazing. I’m a huge fan of Leonardo [DiCaprio]‘s and [director] Christopher Nolan’s. It looks amazing just from the trailers. The dream world looks unbelievable.[The book] Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man by Bill Kleg. It’s an addiction memoir about a rising literary agent whose life spirals out of control when he gets addicted to crack. I read about in The New Yorker and New York Times. It really intrigued me. Man, if they ever did a movie about this, I’d want to do it. The summertime, people get into that salacious type stuff. This one is really gripping and entertaining.

@WhiteCollarUSA also posted that there will be a photo spread of Matt in the August issue of GQ!
Matt was also mentioned here: ‘Vampire’ Queen Anne Rice: Matt Bomer Should Fill Brad’s Shoes
Best-selling author Anne Rice says that amidst “talks” of revisiting her ‘Vampire Chronicles’ series via a new Lestat film, she knows exactly who she’d like to see sink his teeth into the role previously portrayed by Brad Pitt.
“I’m loving Matt Bomer, and remain convinced that some day he would be a wonderful Louis de Pointe du Lac,” Rice shared on her Facebook fan page. “I mean if somebody has to follow Brad Pitt, it should be Matt Bomer.”
I added 13 more photos of Matt at Paley Center (NY) on June 7, 2010.
I added 3 more photos of Matt at NBC Universal’s Press Tour All-Star Party on August 5, 2009.
Jeff Eastin also posted a photo of Matt during a “White Collar” night shoot.
Marsha Thomason posted a photo as well with Matt, Tim, and Shariff.
In his eyes…. Matthew Bomer is nothing special. To his fans – that is definitely not the case!!
Have U Heard paid a visit to the set of White Collar where I had the opportunity to meet some of the cast. One of the questions that was posed to Matt Bomer was, does any part of you wish that you were less attractive?
The very humble Matt Bomer responded by telling the panel that they all needed to come in and see him before hair and makeup. Something tells me that wouldn’t change his fans minds.
He fumbled a bit and said it was sort of an impossible question to answer. He definitely had a point – anything he answered would not come out right.
Bomer discussed his character and the fact that he has a con artist consultant on the set.

Also, Matt was awarded 2nd place for TOP 10 PRIME TIME TV HUNKS OF ALL TIME.
MATT BOMER: While many on this list are newcomers to the television fame game, Matt Bomer is someone who feels like he’s been around much longer than he has because he slid in off the radar with ease and finesse. Sure a few years back he was almost the new Superman (but when directors changed Brandon Routh got the role) and had a recurring role on NBC’s Chuck but Bomer became the role of con-artist Neal Caffrey the minute he stepped in front of the camera in the White Collar pilot. It doesn’t hurt that his blue eyes are intoxicating and Neal somehow finds time to hit the gym but Bomer is everything a true TV star is -good looks combined with a natural charisma and a talent for acting that seems effortless. Season 2 beings July 13th – I don’t know about you but I know what I’ll be doing that night!
