Matt is gracing the cover of Modern Luxury / Angeleno’s October issue. The magazine is already out, and the beautiful photoshoot was made by Brian Bowen Smith. Check scans in our gallery.
Last month while promoting The Last Tycoon in New York, Matt recorded an interview at ABC’s Popcorn with Peter Travers – which happens to be one of my favourite segments so far.
Alongside being the amazing self on interviews, he also made us swoon singing Eagle’s song Desperado. Watch it below, and check screen captures in our gallery.
Matt Bomer enbraces role as 1930s Jewish producer in F. Scott Fitzgerald novella.

When he landed the lead in The Last Tycoon, Matt Bomer had never read the timeless F. Scott Fitzgerald novella on which the series is based. But by chance, he had just finished an other celebrated novel set in 1930s Hollywood, Nathanael West’s The Day of the Locust.
“I was contemplating the themes both books deal with: How do you mantain your artistry in such a commercial industry as the movies – and can you? And I was thinking about how much Hollywood has changed since that time period. And how little has really changed.”
Before long, Bomer would be poring over Fitzgerald’s prose to prepare for his Last Tycoon portrayal.
On Friday, the streaming service premieres its 10-episode adaptation of the literary giant’s unfinished novel The Last Tycoon, which traces the careers of two Hollywood moguls (played by Matt Bomer and Kelsey Grammer) in the late 1930s.
Talking to executive producer Joshua D. Maurer midway through the shoot, “I was like, ‘Hey, Josh, when did we divert from the original book?'” Grammer recalls. “And he was like, ‘Oh, God, a long time ago.’ The beauty of an unfinished novel is you get to finish it.”
Matt has been busy in the last two weeks doing his promotional tour for The Last Tycoon, and several videos has popped up. I’m going to reunite them all on this post. Enjoy!
