Matt Bomer Reveals He Was Almost On This Iconic Disney Children's Show

Matt Bomer is opening up about the time he was almost cast on…The Mickey Mouse Club!

Speaking with Variety, the 42-year-old actor recalled his audition process for the popular children’s show.

“They lined you up and you had to sing a song. I had no song prepared, so I just sang the same song that the girl in front of me sang. It was ‘Eternal Flame’ by the Bangles,” Matt shared. “Then I basically made up this monologue on the spot for the comedic acting part or whatever, and I kept getting called back and called back.”

He went on, saying that he “didn’t have a headshot, I had nothing. They called me and they were like, ‘We think we’re going to bring you down to Orlando for a screen test.’”

Matt added that he did get a call to go in for the final round of casting, but he ended up not going.

“I was so excited, I had time to prepare, I got a real monologue together, I prepared a song,” Matt said. “I think I got called at the last minute and they ended up not bringing me down. They were probably like, ‘Who is this kid? No one’s going to come with him. He’d be on his own.’”

The Mickey Mouse Club launched a lot of careers of well known actors, including Ryan Gosling and Keri Russell and also launched music careers for Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

If you missed it, Matt also revealed that he was almost cast in this movie, which made headlines in 2017.
