Matt Recalls Brief Time As Brett Ratner’s Superman
Matthew Bomer is currently impressing audiences as conman-turned-FBI agent Neal Caffrey in the “White Collar” television series, but there was a time not too long ago when he was primed to bring a far more familiar character to the big screen as the star of what eventually became “Superman Returns.”
Before Bryan Singer took over “Superman Returns,” Brett Ratner had been tagged as the project’s director and cast Bomer as Kal-El. Ratner left the project in 2003, and the role of Superman was re-cast and given to Brandon Routh when Singer was named the new director. So, when Bomer dropped by MTV HQ to discuss “White Collar,” we had to ask him what it was like to be Superman — even for just a little while.
“I actually screen-tested for Superman, and there was a time when Brett Ratner and I were going to work together on it,” Bomer told MTV News. “That particular incarnation of that franchise sort of fell apart, and then it became a whole different beast.”
“I was in full tights,” he laughed when asked how much of the costume he had donned for his screen test. “I was rocking the tights, the speedo, all of it.”
“It was really surreal,” he added. “As a kid, you grow up idolizing superheroes, and to be in that garb was really fun and surreal and humbling. … It was a really great experience, and one that I’m really thankful for. I got to live out a childhood fantasy, if only for the period of the screen test.”
Bomer, who earned extra comics cred for dropping by Splash Page HQ post-interview to talk comics, also shared some of his thoughts about the superhero genre as a whole.
“I think superheroes are really fun roles,” he said. “I think they’re something we’ll always need as a society, because they show us what we could be and that hopefully, no matter how scary and bad things get, there’s always somebody who can help us — or that humanity really wins out in the end.”

It also nabbed a series high with 983,000 viewers age 18-34, a 42% increase over the fall average.
Matt Bomer Teaches Us How To Be The Perfect Con Artist
Get your suits pressed and your ankle monitors ready because the crime drama, “White Collar” returns tonight on USA. According to the man himself, Matt Bomer, who plays sharp-as-nails criminal Neal on the series, you can plan to see a lot more “intelligent, procedural stories” in the second half of the season. Plus, “you’ll see how far Neal is willing to go to find Kate, and how much he’s willing to bend the rules and skirt authority.”
Speaking of which, when Matt stopped by the MTV News offices last week, he also raved about how exciting it is to step into Neal’s shoes every week. “It’s really fun to play people who sort of operate on the outskirts of the moral parameter and like to operate by their own rules.”
Naturally, we’d have no idea what that’s like because we’ve (ahem) never broken the law. So, we enlisted Mr. Bomer to explain to us how to be the perfect con-man.
“First and foremost, — it comes from the name — is just the confidence,” Matt dishes about being a smooth criminal. “What I learned about a good con artist is that they do their homework just like a good actor prepares for a role. They prepare for every mark they have. You have to be able to spot a really good mark, do your homework and have the confidence to pull it off.”
