Matt Bomer Discussed Playing Armie Hammer's Role in 'Call Me By Your Name'

Matt Bomer had once discussed playing one of the leading roles in the 2017 movie Call Me By Your Name!

“I had met with [Call Me By Your Name executive producer Derek Simonds] years ago when he was involved in ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ and we’d hit it off creatively and had a great conversation,” Matt told Variety. Matt added that Derek actually worked on an adaptation of the source material years before Luca Guadagnino‘s 2017 movie.

Matt added they had discussed him playing the role of Oliver. “I obviously loved the material; I loved talking with him about it. I thought it had real potential. Then he went on to do other things and I went on to do other things.”

The role of Oliver eventually went to Armie Hammer, who played opposite Timothee Chalamet in the movie.

There was actually Call Me By Your Name news just a few months ago!
