Less than a year after White Collar wrapped its six-season run, Matt Bomer is looking to headline his next TV series.
, based on the unfinished F. Scott Fitzgerald novel
, will play 1930s movie mogul Monroe Stahr, a character inspired by Hollywood legend Irving Thalberg. The series, like the source novel, will follow Monroe’s rise as a studio executive, a journey which eventually puts him at odds with studio head Pat Brady — who also happens to be Monroe’s mentor. Brady is inspired by MGM co-founder Louis B. Mayer.
The pilot was written by Billy Ray (Captain Phillips), who will also direct.
I will watch anything this man is in. He’s so talented. I was so excited that he was joining American Horror Story this season, but to my disappointment his talents much like Angela Bassett and Sarah Paulson are absolutely being wasted this season. It’s so sad that he’s barely even in the show. I see people constantly complaining about how Lady Gaga is ruining this season, but she’s been fine and the least of the show’s issues this season. The biggest problem I find is how absolutely BORING the Wes Bentley/Chloe Sevigny’s characters are. It’s beyond frustrating how much screen time has been devoted to those two while so many of this talented cast are barely featured.
I’m excited to see Matt Bomer in 1930s style! This is going to be clothing porn at its finest!
If this means getting him away from Ryan Murphy and his crapfest American Horror Story, I’m all for it.
Matt is perfect for this type of role. I can’t wait to see him in a lead role again. I haven’t watched AHSHotel because even the previews made me squeamish. From what I read Matt isn’t in it much, although they tend to use lots of characters, like in Freak Show, and they all have different eps that they are prominent in. Anyway, Matt Bomer is a very talented actor and am glad he has a new opportunity to showcase that.
