CMU grad enjoys twists and turns in White collar role
When he was in Pittsburgh at CMU, Bomer lived at different times in Shadyside, Squirrel Hill and Oakland, and he played a bag boy in a Giant Eagle TV commercial. He maintains contact with CMU professor of voice/speech Don Wadsworth, who served as his dialect coach when Bomer had to speak Italian and French in an early “White Collar” episode.
Although Bomer previously had a recurring role on NBC’s “Chuck” (as the spy Bryce Larkin) and starred in ABC’s 2007 series “Traveler,” “White Collar” represents a break-out role for the actor. USA put a lot of marketing money behind the show’s premiere, including huge billboard photos of Bomer that went up in the country’s largest TV markets.
“It’s obviously completely surreal,” he said of seeing himself two stories high. “But the great thing about it is it feels so good to have a network so strongly behind us. Whatever it takes, I’m happy with. I would much rather that than, ‘Oh, yeah, another one of our shows.’ There was a certain point where I wanted to lock myself in my studio apartment for a week or two, but I’m just thankful they’re behind us.”
The support has now extended the show to a second season. Production resumes in March or April in New York.
Jeff Eastin uploaded an awesome video of Matt doing his stunt for “Free Fall” Episode 1×7.
Crayen and I added 16 more publicity images of Matt (with actress Sarah Wynter) at the Calvin Klein Collection & Los Angeles Nomadic Division Event on 1/28/10. I also added a photo of Matt and Ellen on The Ellen DeGeneres Show too!
Clothes maketh the con man. Just ask Matt Bomer, the criminally handsome actor who plays Neil Caffrey, the master scam artist turned F.B.I. consultant on USA Network’s breakout dramedy, “White Collar.”
Bomer’s character struts around, unraveling the lies of the rich and famous, in slim-line, single-breasted Devoré suits (in the script they’re vintage threads made by Sinatra’s tailor), club-collar shirts, Dapper Don accessories and a fedora.
“Neil’s expertise is maneuvering through the upper echelons of society,” Bomer says, “and there is a certain uniform for navigating these waters smoothly. So his look is somewhere between the Rat Pack and Marcello Mastroianni, with a bit of Jack Kerouac’s swagger thrown in for good measure.”
In addition to stealing the show in his immaculate retro get-ups, Bomer’s polymath character possesses the kind of sprezzatura that would make even Castiglione proud. “Neil is certainly esoteric,” Bomer says, “from knowing the fibers used in Canadian currency to how to play Pai Gow” — a Chinese domino game — “and using a lot of sleight of hand. He’s an interesting guy.”
