The Last Tycoon
A co-production with TriStar Television, The Last Tycoon is written and directed by Academy Award nominee Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games), and executive produced by Ray and Christopher Keyser (Tyrant, Party of Five), who serve as showrunners, Joshua D. Maurer (Rosemary’s Baby), Alixandre Witlin (Rosemary’s Baby), and David A. Stern (Rosemary’s Baby). Mad Men’s Scott Hornbacher serves as co-executive producer of the pilot, along with Perri Kipperman (Billions). An adaptation of F.

In a world darkened by the Great Depression and the growing international influence of Hitler’s Germany, The Last Tycoon illuminates the passions, violence, and towering ambition of 1930’s Hollywood. Lily Collins (The Blind Side) stars as Cecelia Brady and noted Pulitzer-winning Fitzgerald scholar A. Scott Berg serves as consulting producer.

Matt Bomer Is Absolutely on Fire Right Now

Mens Fitness – By Mark Clayton

Long before he broke hearts as a lovably devilish ladies’ man on USA’s White Collar or shed 40 pounds for a Golden Globe–winning role as an AIDS victim in HBO’s The Normal Heart—and certainly before he gyrated alongside Channing Tatum in the Magic Mike films or played a vampire on FX’s American Horror Story: Hotel—Matt Bomer was a Texas high schooler valiantly defying any and all stereotypes of what it meant to be a man.

Was he a handsome jock or a shape-shifting thespian? A gun-toting good ol’ boy who’d been hunting since he was 8 or a gay man coming of age in one of America’s reddest states?

Well, turns out he was all of them—at least, as long as his schedule allowed it.

“Unfortunately, my senior year I left the football team because I got a play at the Alley Theater in Houston,” says the 38-year-old Bomer, who still looks back fondly on his days as a wide receiver and defensive back. “I was crazy fast,” he says. “I ran good routes, and I had good hands. I didn’t drop passes!”

Matt, John Boy is terrifying without saying anything, just in his demeanour. Was that great to bring to life?
Matt Bomer: Oh yeah, I mean it is always fun to paint with different colours and play these kind of roles you aren’t typically thin-sliced as, and to do it with these people. I am essentially a fan boy who is lucky to be along for the ride. Shane and Joel are a huge part of my cinematic upbringing: to watch two of my favourite actors create this incredible symbiotic comedic performance where one doesn’t work without the other and every take is different, it was just an incredible education for me.

RC: I could have made it work without Ryan (laughter).

We have been talking about the actors, what was it like, Matt, to throw a 13 year old girl through a window?
MB: Angorie is such a consummate professional that, you know, it was the first thing I filmed and I had to throw a young girl through a window and I immediately felt the need to ingratiate myself to these young girls, and that I was a parent and it was just pretend and they just stared at me blankly and were like, so? Throw me through the window, what you got? That’s it? I want another take! So yeah, they took me to school.

Cannes Portraits

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.

Matt Bomer
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.
