Julia Roberts & Matt Bomer Join Ryan Murphy's 'Normal Heart'

Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Alec Baldwin, and Jim Parsons have all joined the upcoming film The Normal Heart, according to THR.

The project, helmed by Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy, is based on the Tony Award-winning drama of the same name, which “details the rise of HIV/AIDS in New York’s gay community in the 1980s.”

Mark Ruffalo, who was already attached to The Normal Heart, will play Ned Weeks, while Matt plays his gay fashion journalist boyfriend.

Julia will play wheel chair bound doctor Emma Brookner, Alec will take on the role of Ned’s brother, a lawyer who struggles to accept his sexuality, and Jim co-stars as a Southerner who is a gay activist.

Brad Pitt‘s Plan B will be producing the flick.
