Matt visited last night the Conan show, to promote Walking Out. He also presented an exclusive clip of the movie, which you can watch in the players below.
Walking Out made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it bowed to strong reviews. In this story of a man (Matt Bomer) trying to reconnect with his son (Josh Wiggins) during a wintry hunting expedition in Montana, the villains are the elements, the frayed familial bonds between an estranged parent and child, and definitely also the bears. After Bomer’s character sustains a grave injury, his boy must carry him back through the snowy wilderness to the safety of their car — or at least try his very best to do so — before blood loss and exposure claim him. See the first trailer here on Vulture, and mark down its theatrical release on October 6.
Matt Bomer is starring the new Fall campaign of Todd Snyder, that was released this week.
Five years ago Bomer reached Snyder on his first CFDA Awards. “He came up to me and said to me, ‘Hey I love your stuff. I was just blown away, obviously I’m a huge fan of his. Honestly, I don’t know if I said anything, I was a bit speechless.”
Over the next few years, the designer cultivated a relationship with the actor, who, he noted, had been a longtime customer of his brand. So when Snyder asked Bomer to appear in his fall campaign, it felt natural. The game plan for the photo shoot, he explained, was for Bomer to simply be himself.
“We wanted to tell our brand’s story through other people and Matt is someone who has great values and he’s a family man. He just fits our guy and who we want to be inspired by. And obviously he’s good-looking.”
Snyder said Bomer didn’t shave for four days to make the photos.
“So often [Bomer] looks almost perfect on screen, and I think he really likes the idea of looking more like he does every day. I’m sure he’s been told he’s beautiful so many times that I would think it would get annoying.”
Watch the campaign videos below, and head over our gallery to see the beautiful campaign, shot by Matthew Brookes.
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.
Sparks fly when Matt Bomer (The Last Tycoon, White Collar, Magic Mike) visits the Above Average offices, and a quick interaction with his biggest fan, Rob King, changes his life…and his heart, forever.
Hello, Bomer fans! Last night Matt Bomer attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet, an event hosted annually to support members of the film and television community with grants scholarships and fellowships. He talked on stage with fellow actor Armie Hammer and you can find pictures in our gallery.

YAHOO – There’s no doubt that if it’s a fantastic period wardrobe you’re looking for, Emmy-winning Mad Men and Deadwood designer Janie Bryant is the go-to costumer.
Matt Bomer, star of Amazon’s new drama The Last Tycoon, couldn’t agree more about the “incredible” wardrobe Bryant designed for him and his castmates. The sharp duds he wears as 1930s Hollywood producer Monroe Stahr in this adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final novel, in fact, often left the Golden Globe winner literally breathless.
“You hold yourself differently when you’re wearing an impeccably tailored, double-breasted suit,” Bomer tells Yahoo TV in the video above. “Where the waistline is, how the pants fall, and the shoes you wear all affect the movement of the character.
“The tougher part is, there were times that it was so tailored that breathing became an issue, so I guess that’s the hardest part about it, making sure I can breath.”
Bomer, who says Bryant’s work “informs your physical life as an actor and just brings you right into [the character],” lost weight to portray Stahr, a slim man who’s been dealing with a serious health issue his whole life.
“It was a bit of a physical undertaking to inhabit the role. He’s had a congenital heart defect since birth, and so, hasn’t been able to go to the gym and exercise, and has to be careful about his physical status,” says the actor, whose Last Tycoon character was written by Fitzgerald as a fictionalized biography of legendary producer Irving Thalberg. “So not only was that something to keep in mind in the scenes, but I also had to lose some weight.
“It was more a dietary thing. Walking, a lot of walking, and laying off the exercise, really. But all of that is part of the fun of going role to role. I’ve done it before, and it’s an enjoyable process. It didn’t inhibit the work at all, it allowed me to, hopefully, dig in a little deeper.”
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!
Matt graced last night The Late Late Show with James Corden, as part of the ongoing promotion of The Last Tycoon. Check below the interview, as well screen captures in our gallery.
