Netflix has released the official trailer for the mystery-thriller Echoes, which stars Michelle Monaghan on a dual role. Matt portrays Jack Beck, one of the twins’ husbands, and he’s sporting a cowboy look based on the trailer. What do you guys think about Jack? Are you feeling him as one of the good guys or the bad ones pretending to be good? All seven episodes are set to premiere on August 19th on Netflix. Check out the trailer below, then head over to our gallery for some screencaps of Matt from the trailer and high-quality stills from the series premiere!
Check out the trailer for the documentary All Man: The International Male Story that Matt narrated, which will be premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival this Sunday!
DEADLINE – The pic, which screens in the fest’s Spotlight Documentary section, charts the journey across three decades of iconic men’s fashion catalog International Male, and its impact on fashion, masculinity and gay rights.
Founded by Gene Burkard in the 1970s, the catalog focused on all flamboyant in clothes, from wild-patterned shirts and mesh tank tops to the bikini-est of bikini underwear, all modeled by chiseled men held up as paragons of masculinity. Although in parts cheeky (no pun intended) by design, the documentary zeroes in on the influence of the magazine-style mail-order catalog, which proved fashion’s power to unite the interests of gay and straight men, mainstreamed a more cosmopolitan expression — and almost single-handedly launched “metrosexual” as a trend.
By its apex, the catalog had a circulation of more than 3 million and was bringing in $120 million in revenues.
“Once upon a time, a small band of outsiders formed an unlikely family,” Bomer says in voice-over in the teaser, from the script by Emmy- and Peabody-winning filmmaker Peter Jones (Stardust: The Bette Davis Story, Johnny Carson: King of Late-Night). “Together, they created something that would change the way men would look at themselves, and how the world would look at them.”
Matt was spotted on the set of Maestro yesterday in New York City, sporting a business attire and sharing a kiss with Bradley Cooper. Bradley is playing the lead role as Leonard Bernstein, while Matt is reportedly playing one of his lovers. Check out some photos of Matt on set in our gallery!
Apologies for the delays, I’ve been busy and the site had to be transferred to a new server so I couldn’t update until it was complete. Matt is set to play one of Leonard Bernstein’s lovers in the upcoming Netflix biopic Maestro, which stars Bradley Cooper. Filming starts next month!
VARIETY – Multiple sources confirmed the casting opposite Cooper, who stars as the “West Side Story” composer. Cooper also co-wrote the screenplay and directs, making it his follow-up to the Oscar-winning “A Star Is Born.”
Bernstein, who died in 1990 at age 72, was married to artist Felicia Montealegre and they had three children together. However, it was revealed after Bernstein’s death that his wife acknowledged that he was gay and had sexual relationships with men.
I’m told Bomer’s character is a clarinet player with whom Bernstein had a brief relationship.
Bernstein never publicly confirmed he was gay. Bernstein left Montealegre for a male radio station manager in 1976 but returned to the marriage the next year to care for his wife after she was diagnosed with lung cancer. Carey Mulligan is set to portray Montealegre.
Cooper told Variety in January that “Maestro” will start shooting in May. “AII wanted was to be a conductor since I was a kid,” Cooper said about the new film. “I was obsessed with it, asked Santa Claus for a baton when I was 8. Listening to music, falling in love with it and being able to really know every single moment of a piece, like Tchaikovsky’s ‘Opus 35’ in D major, this violin concerto. I could do it as if I know everything about it without really being able to speak the language, obviously.”
No release date has been announced for the film.
Exciting news! Matt is set to star and executive-produce the series adaptation of the novel, Fellow Travelers, by Thomas Mallon for Showtime. Congratulations to Matt, we’re already looking forward to this project!
VARIETY – Ron Nyswaner is adapting the book for the screen and will also serve as showrunner and executive producer on the series. “Fellow Travelers” is described as a political thriller and epic love story that unfolds in the era of McCarthyism and resolves in the age of AIDS. It follow the intertwined lives and volatile romance of two very different men, Hawkins “Hawk” Fuller (Bomer) and Tim Kovacs, through purges, wars, protests, and plagues, overcoming obstacles in the world and in themselves.
Along with Bomer and Nyswaner, Michael Grandage will executive produce in addition to directing. Robbie Rogers will also be an executive producer on the project. Fremantle will produce.

Exciting news! Matt is set to star in Netflix’s psychological thriller limited series, Echoes, opposite Michelle Monaghan. Check out the synopsis and Matt’s character description below!
DEADLINE – Created and written by Vanessa Gazy, Echoes is a mystery thriller about identical twins Leni and Gina, both portrayed by Monaghan, who share a dangerous secret. Since they were children, Leni and Gina secretly have swapped lives, culminating in a double life as adults: They share two homes, two husbands and a child, but everything in their perfectly choreographed world is thrown into disarray when one of the sisters goes missing.
Bomer will play Jack Beck, Leni’s husband. He is the boy-next-door who grew up to be the husband everybody wishes they had: soulful, a loving father and a valuable member of the community who runs a successful veterinary practice and horse farm on the land that has been in his family for generations. When his wife disappears mysteriously, it’s Jack who has the most to lose as her secret life comes to the surface.

Check out the first official trailer for DC’s Justice Society: World War II! Matt sounds like a perfect Flash, I’m excited for this. Along with the trailer, they also released the official synopsis.
Justice Society: World War II finds modern-day Barry Allen – prior to the formation of the Justice League – discovering he can run even faster than he imagined, and that milestone results in his first encounter with the Speed Force. The Flash is promptly launched into the midst of a raging battle – primarily between Nazis and a team of Golden Age DC Super Heroes known as The Justice Society of America. Led by Wonder Woman, the group includes Hourman, Black Canary, Hawkman, Steve Trevor and the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick. The Flash quickly volunteers to assist his fellow heroes in tipping the scales of war in their favor, while the team tries to figure out how to send him home. But it won’t be easy as complications and emotions run deep in this time-skipping World War II thriller. This is the first film in the DC Universe Movies series — of which this film will be No. 42 over the past 14 years — to feature the Justice Society. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Justice Society: World War II will be available on Digital and home entertainment later in 2021.
