Amazon is picking up the pen where F. Scott Fitzgerald left off.
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.”

Two new portraits taken during Cannes was published today. On W Magazine, Matt was under the session Meet The Beautiful People of The Cannes Festival.
In his breakout role as Bryce Larkin on ABC’s “Chuck,” Matt Bomer, 38, played the suave straight guy and sometime-nemesis to Zachary Levi’s titular character, an accidental superspy. He followed that performance with a five-season run as Neal Caffrey on USA’s “White Collar” — in short, he’s no stranger to playing the charming antihero. He embraces his criminal side once more in his most recent turn as the gun-toting John Boy in the Ryan Gosling-Russell Crowe comedy “The Nice Guys,” which premiered at Cannes on Sunday. Gosling and Crowe play an unlikely pair of private investigators hired to track down a missing girl named Amelia (Margaret Qualley) in ’70s California. Amelia, meanwhile, flits around the edges of the film while its titular Nice Guys locate her. For the role, Bomer sports a set of bangs that somehow perfectly place him in character as the slapstick villain of an already slapstick trajectory.
I’ve been working the whole day reorganizing our photoshoots section at the gallery. I have some pet peeves when comes to fansite management and having no information at date/publication in a photoshoot is a huge one. So during the past month – and with the help of our fellow donators I was able to upgrade some pictures quality and decided to reorganize things while updating. So now all sessions/outtakes/portraits are separated into years, and it came with at least the publication name in its album. I have a huge help from our Twitter friends today and some are still unknown so, if you know the publication’s name, drop us a line here or in our twitter.
Some albums had the pictures quality upgraded for large or HQ versions. Some new albums has been added. And for the ones I didn’t find a better quality copy of the pictures, yet, I will keep working on it!

Lady Gaga it’s the guest editor of V Magazine’s V99, bringing to the current issue 16 different covers, dedicating each of the 16 to the creators, collectors and collaborators who have inspired her life and fame. One of the covers is dedicated to her friends from American Horror Story: Hotel, and the thematic shoot is made by Chadwick Tyler.
On the editorial, she talked about how the shoot was created:
So, what I did here was: my friend Chadwick photographed us and set us up inside a house that we rented and it was like a true American horror story. A slum of America. We didn’t pose or anything. We improv’d for, like, five hours. We just created characters and performed in the space. It was based partly on A Streetcar Named Desire, but loosely, and we each created our own space within the story. It was just a beautiful day and we took these beautiful photos. So, [most of the cast from American Horror Story: Hotel]: Kathy Bates, Wes Bentley, Chloë Sevigny, Finn Wittrock, Cheyenne Jackson, Angela Bassett, Matt Bomer, and Denis O’Hare. I just asked that everyone forget that the cameras were there, period, and just be there together. And that Chadwick was really documenting it while we were doing a live piece. We spent some time talking about it in our trailers outside, and when we went inside we kind of fell into it. It was amazing how it happened. Everybody reacted differently to it. I asked them all to improv on their day off. Not everyone was super stoked right away. I had to work them into it and explain it to them, and once we got in there, everybody came together and it happened so naturally and easily and these beautiful photos happened.
The issue will hit newstands next January 14 and you will find scans here as soon it’s available.
