Matt Bomer Films After 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Petition Initiated

Matt Bomer is all suited up while filming for the upcoming season of his show White Collar on Tuesday (September 3) in New York City.

The 35-year-old actor was spotted shooting just after fans of the upcoming film Fifty Shades of Grey enacted a petition titled “We want Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele on 50 Shades,” which has caused an Internet frenzy!

Currently, the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele have been awarded to Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson, respectively.

    Matt and Alexis have both said they don’t want to do it. Fans should really pay attention.

  • http://www.madonna.com Marc

    The most beautiful man in the world.

  • sissy

    Matt is a great actor.
    Fifty shades is a book/movie shit

  • yup

    That’s really disrespectful to the author, the movie execs and the actors that have been given the roles already. While Matt Bomer is my dream Christian, I respect his decision to not participate in the movie and think that Charlie will do an equally amazing job; likewise for Alexis and Dakota.

  • Blue

    Fans are acting insane. For sure, producers are gonna say: “hey Charlie, Dakota, u guys are uncasted” lol. C’mon be realistic, and drop this already. They have made a decision and not turning back. Don’t judge before u haven’t seen them on screen!! And plus Charlie is great, he wasn’t on my list but that’s okay. He’s going to shave, get a cut/dye hair,suit up and Bam!: Christian Grey.

  • Paul

    I agree, he is probably the most beautiful man in the world, but being gay it must be difficult to project sexual chemistry with a woman in a very sexually charged movie like 50 Shades will be.

  • sissy

    Fifty shades is a book/ movie s h i t

  • Pauline

    I mean I do like Matt bomer , he looks good ! I don’t have anything against gay people , but since I’ve learnt that he is , it’s just hard for me to picture him with a woman … I do think that the actor they picked is great . And I DO BELIEVE that Alexis bledel would have been PERFECT . But she is just a bit too old , and not such a great actress … Anyway let’s give it a chance . And creating a petition just for a movie is a bit excessive, it’s just a book come on !

  • http://www.madonna.com Marc

    @Paul: Not at all, he has some great chemistry with women in White Collar, after all, if a straight man can play a gay character and be credible why can’t he?…He’s an Actor.

  • LiiL

    @Blue:

    N-O-T-H-I-N-G could help to Charlie to get a Christian Grey form.. Its not possible, precisely because almost everybody imagined Grey, like Matt Bomer, and you know he is a proffesional actor, so he could play this roll without any doubt.
    I try to be respectful, but Im asking a question: the author and the director took this decision respectfully? I don’t think so..

  • sissy

    Charlie played a gay man.
    it’s hard for me to picture him with a woman .
    This movie is s h i t .

  • Missy

    He never wanted to play Christian Grey. Why is it so hard to accept this?

  • Blue

    @LiiL Why you ask if the director took the decision respectfully? They are the ones who have the “eye”, seen the screen tests etc. why is it so hard for you guys to not have perspective? Plus Bomer said he is not interested on the role, period. And so Charlie isn’t an actor? How sure are you that he can’t pull it off? Have you seen him play Christian Grey already? No, right? Stop with the negative and have a more open mind. Done. Good afternoon! :-)

  • Roberta Tatarin

    Matt is my Grey! Gorgeous!!

  • Jeanne

    We want Matt as Grey!! but i like Dakota for the role of Anastacia <3

  • MATT IS GORGEOUS

    I mean put this guy next to the clown they chose to play Grey…come on…you either want a real movie or some cheap s hit…

  • gina

    Wow! How gorgeous is this man! But judging from his career so far and the movies he has coming, I doubt if he wasever interested in the fifty shades role. He is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon with theatre background for gods sake! He has better roles coming his way!

  • Diliana von Bork

    Peter Burke! :o)
    Why people care about this book? And why people want to see their favorite actors playing these characters? Don’t you think they deserve something better?
    @Paul: I don’t agree with you. Isn’t it what he does in White Collar?

  • sissy

    @gina:

    I agree.

  • N

    Matt will always be my Christian Grey <3

  • Amy

    Paul and Pauline sound like homophobes. It’s called “acting” for a reason.

    Rock Hudson was gay and no one ever knew until after his death. He was a talented actor.

  • Nan

    What an awkward spot to put Matt and Alexis in. Neither of them has publicly said anything really about these roles and now they’re placed in this rather strange limelight.

    Strange, because it has nothing to do with them. It’s all a creation of some, umm, let’s say enthusiastic people.

    I just hope it goes away quickly. It’s done. Deal with it.

  • pup

    This man is perfection incarnate. My gooooodness!

  • Brt

    @pup:

    I agree. I don’t think there is anyone that looks as gorgeous as this man…many people say there is no such a thing as a perfection. Well he is: perfect father, husband, talented actor, smart, sexy, a true gentleman and amazingly beautiful inside and out. He is the type of man all women fantasize about. He’s like that glamorous diamond in an exhibit where you can look but you can’t touch. But boy is it mesmerizing to look at.

  • da man

    Why can’t they make a movie for matt bomer fans like “50 shades of pink”?

  • #25 is an idiot

    @da man:

    HAHA, very funny stupid!!!!

  • Debra

    Matt is too much better for that poor film.
    Go Bomer!!!

  • nicann

    @Missy: YES!!!! finally someone else realizes this!

  • Rose

    I would rather watch a gay version of 50 Shades with Matt Bomer banging Charlie Hunnam. Now THAT would be quality entertainment. Really though, who needs the dumb girl? haha

  • WJ

    Thank god he avoided this train wreck. He is far too good for this. He’s a real actor, looking forward to The Normal Heart and his other new films. Looks like they chose the 4th string here – wooden actors.

  • aerialla

    Fangirls please get it through your massively thick skulls that someone with Matt Bomer’s education and career is not about to commit career suicide by being in some horribly contrived piece of shite that this movie is going to be. There is a reason why they went with two virtual unknowns – no actor wants to touch this trumped up S&M nightmare, no matter the money or the asinine petitions

  • perky

    those petition signing fans need to get a life, why don’t petition to also direct and produce the film as well ? LAME !

  • Kellogg

    @Paul: god you and “Pauline” are morons.

  • tamy

    aerialla : Charlie is not ‘unknow” for a lot of people not famous like Matt but not ‘unknow”

    I’m agree with a lot of ppl who said it’s direspectful for the prod, actors… and Matt doesn’t want to do it so stop! And I can judge if the movie will be good or not so we’ll see but Charlie is a good actor.

    This all thing about this movie & this christian grey is insane! Matt have his own projects so watch him there!

    and ‘matt is gorgeous” youare so direspectful to call charlie a clown do you know him? what he did to you? nothing! you can be uspet without being direspectful

  • TheMuffinman

    this guy is just to good looking for his own good, was my perfect Christian Grey but im ot going to cry over the fact he isnt in the movie, Charlie will do a good job at least they picked someone that can act.

  • Eva

    I think Matt is too gorgeous to play Grey as perfect as this character is described in the book…Matt is just too beautiful and no one, not even Christian Grey can come close to such beauty…

  • PERFECTION

    Matt Bomer is God in human form!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Paul

    @Amy: I am not a homophobe, I am a homosexual. We are not talking about a PG movie, 50 shades is going to have sexually explicit scenes like the book has. I know Matt Bomer is an amazing actor, but still….

  • james

    @Paul:

    Naysayers like you are the reason why we can’t have nice things.

  • Roman

    @Paul: you are not a gay man, just a troll who sounds like an idiot. If you were gay, you would obviously be the self loathing variety like BEE. A good number of Hollywood action stars are closeted, even the new MOS. So deal with it as its called acting.

  • LiiL

    @Blue:

    I have seen Charlie in different rolls alredy, thanks for your question, but you just cant understand, that the problem isnt about Charlie playing. As for me the problem is the type, Charlie isnt the Grey type. Simply not.
    This is it. Im sorry but its my opinion, and I have a right to write it down.
    Good day! :]

  • http://@morgandoh Morgan

    I think that a production of a movie has the right to choose who they want for they movie, even if fans are not agree. personally, I’m happy that Matt didn’t get the part, he deserve more than a role in a porno movie, and I’m glad too that this matter is finally ended, petition or not! I was so tired to see all those fans that, at any pic of Matt almost shout “oh, he’s CG” as this was the only role he could play

  • Paul

    @Roman: WOW! I can’t believe you are insulting me just because I have an opinion. You are a bully.

  • jenna

    @Paul: So you say you are a gay man. Does that mean you think only gay actors can convincingly play gays? I have only seen Matt play straight dude on screen but ironically I have scene Charlie in a very explicit gay sexual scene. Doesn’t mean a thing except that they are good actors.
    Just an aside what you see on screen ain’t real, actors, esp. a trained one as Matt are chameleons. These sex scenes are highly orchestrated, every move, every look is directed. It’s really not what you imagine….It’s really not that big of a deal, if you step outside of your own narrow vision, that is.

  • Traci

    @da man: Henry Cavill would take that role!

  • Jules

    @da man: Henry Cavill can star in that version

  • Gina

    Look…How da hell…this Matt dude is sexy but HE IS NOT BLONDE. How do we even know he will look right as a blonde? I had just gotten used to picturing Charlie Hunnan as Christian Grey. I think once they clean Charlie up and get his hair right he could fit right into the role.
