Matt Bomer is a Paper Person
On researching for his character (an ex-con whose sentence is commuted in exchange for helping the FBI put away other criminals): “I watched The Hustler, The Sting, and To Catch a Thief. But I also tried to throw in a little bit of Ferris Bueller and Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours. I like characters with flaws, who have shadow.”
On quitting his high school football team to join a production of A Streetcar Named Desire: “I used to drive down at the end of the school day, do the show, do my homework during intermission and drive an hour back to Spring to go to school the next day. (The footballers didn’t object.) I think they understood that this was what I wanted to do with my life. (smiles) If I had been the All-State quarterback, they would have had some objections to my playing the young collector in Streetcar.”
FYI: Matt is wearing a blazer and pants by Calvin Klein Collection and shirt by Converse by John Varvatos.
