The cast of Maestro, Bradley Cooper, Carey Mulligan, and Matt Bomer, attended the Deadline Contenders Film L.A. last night. A panel was held inside, which I think will be released tomorrow. I’ll update this post when it’s out. In the meantime, visit our gallery for photos of Matt at the event! They also stopped by Deadline’s portrait studio for two gorgeous portraits!

Netflix recently released the first official teaser for Maestro starring Bradley Cooper as the famed composer Leonard Bernstein. Unfortunately, there’s not a glimpse of Matt yet, but hopefully in the full trailer. The film is out in select theaters on November 22 and will be available to stream on Netflix starting December 20.
Maestro is a towering and fearless love story chronicling the lifelong relationship between cultural icon Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein. A love letter to life and art, Maestro, at its core, is an emotionally epic portrayal of family and love.
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.
