Matt Bomer Creates CW Pilot
On his experience living in NYC: “I lived in Midtown back [in the early aughts], and I’d never do that again. It’s byzantine… you walk outside, and I hear the Rolling Stones song, ‘Here Comes Your 19th Nervous Breakdown.’ It’s hard to be Zen there. [On the other hand,] it’s too Zen in L.A. I feel completely blessed to have the best of both worlds. There are things I love and appreciate in New York — the culture, the metropolitan aspect, taking public transportation. The museums, the theater. And New Yorkers. There’s nothing I love more than a really indignant New Yorker walking through our shot who says ‘I don’t care what you f–kers are doing, I’m going to my building!’ They’re so righteous about it.”
On creating a series for The CW: “I’ve sold this pilot I’ve been working on to the CW. I just turned in the final draft and they’re deciding if they’re going to shoot it or not in the next few weeks. It’s the first thing that I’ve sold. I won’t act in it. It’s not a vanity piece, it’s never something where I thought let me write something for me.”
