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.

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.

Matt Bomer Would Love To Return To The 'American Horror Story' Franchise In This Way

Matt Bomer has an idea of how he’d like to return to the American Horror Story franchise, should it happen.

“I love Ryan Murphy. He has been the architect of my career in many ways. When he calls, I’m there [laughs],” the -year-old actor, who has starred in both Freak Show and Hotel installments, shared in a new interview. “He’ll know better than anybody if there’s a role that’s right for me on American Horror Story or not.”

But if an on-screen part isn’t in the cards, Matt would love to get behind the camera.

“What I would love to do is to direct one of the American Horror Story one-offs that they’re talking about doing,” he added.

“That would be really, really fun,” Matt says. “You’d get to work with that cast, and tell that story as a director. I’m such a fan of the show, and of that genre, so I think it would be really fun to do.”

If you missed it, new news about the next installments of AHS were just revealed.

Matt, Cheyenne Jackson, Finn Wittrock, Max Greenfield, and Wes Bentley – who have all appeared on American Horror Story - are pictured with smiles on their faces and the author of the tweet couldn’t tell them apart.
