Matt Bomer Talks 'Fifty Shades' Casting Rumors, Wants to Return for 'Magic Mike XXL'!

Matt Bomer gives an interview while behind the scenes at his photo shoot for the cover of Details magazine‘s May 2014 issue.

Here is what the 36-year-old actor had to share in the video:

On his reaction to rumors he’d star in Fifty Shades of Grey: “I have no idea. Obviously, I’m incredibly flattered that so many people thought of me. To be honest with you, I’ve never read any of the books so I don’t know what it was that tipped people off that way or made them think of me, but it was sort of like this really strange and interesting cloud that came in and went away I guess. I’m sure it’s great though. I bet the movie is going to be amazing.”

On if he’ll be back for Magic Mike XXL: “I plan to be. I mean those guys, we had such a criminally good time working together. It was like a band of thieves really. We just hit it off. It was such an ensemble mentality, which didn’t have to be the case under those circumstances. Channing [Tatum] is so great and gracious and Matthew [McConaughey] is such a great leader that everybody had a great time, so if it were to come together under the right circumstances with a good script… it’ll be really fun to do.”
