NYGossipGirl Exclusive Interview: Matt Bomer

NYGossipGirl recently had the pleasure of meeting Matt Bomer, the star of White Collar. Here’s what the charming 32-year-old had to say:

NYGG: Did you know the show was going to be such a huge success when you started?

Bomer: No! We had no idea. To me, I just loved the script, I loved the character, it was so much fun to do that whatever came about was great. I think I’ve been in this business long enough to not really have any expectations, just show up, do the work, and do the best I could. And I knew I was on a network that really gave shows a shot, and really got behind their shows and so I’m really grateful to be working for them and I was pleasantly surprised.

NYGG: Do you have anything else you are working on?

Bomer: Right now, it was tough because this hiatus was so short. I did have movie offers, but I couldn’t shoot them in such a brief period of time so that was tricky. But right now, I’m doing a workshop of a new Broadway musical. They’re re-making the last Rat Pack movie actually, Robin and The Seven Hoods, and I’m playing the Sinatra role in that, so that was sort of a fun way for me to get to flex my creative muscles with a much smaller time constraint.

NYGG: Is there a particular genre of film that you like?

Bomer: I really respond to a lot of the really fun romantic comedy stuff. I think it’s fun, and it gives you a real sense of liberty as an actor to make fun choices, and I think that’d be a really fun place to start.

NYGG: Do you have anyone in mind who you’d want to play the lead actress opposite you?

Bomer: Oh my gosh, the list is endless. I really like Ginnifer Goodwin a lot. Who else do I really like? Anna Faris. I love her, too. I think she’s hysterical.

Ricky Martin: “I Am A Fortunate Homosexual Man”

Ricky Martin has officially come out of the closet as a gay man. The singer posted a message on his Web site, saying:

“A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life. From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth celebrating.

For many years, there has been only one place where I am in touch with my emotions fearlessly and that’s the stage. Being on stage fills my soul in many ways, almost completely. It’s my vice. The music, the lights and the roar of the audience are elements that make me feel capable of anything. This rush of adrenaline is incredibly addictive. I don’t ever want to stop feeling these emotions. But it is serenity that brings me to where I’m at right now. An amazing emotional place of comprehension, reflection and enlightenment. At this moment I’m feeling the same freedom I usually feel only on stage, without a doubt, I need to share.

What the ‘Shrek’ Just Happened?

Check out the funny new character posters from Shrek Forever After, the fourth installment from the popular franchise.

The cast includes: Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Antonio Banderas, Paul McCartney, Julie Andrews and Eric Idle.

Here’s a synopsis of the film:

Instead of scaring villagers away like he used to, a reluctant Shrek now agrees to autograph pitch forks. Longing for the days when he felt like a “real ogre,” Shrek is duped into signing a pact with the smooth-talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin.

Shrek suddenly finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona have never met. Now, it’s up to Shrek to undo all he’s done in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world and reclaiming his one True Love.

Shrek Forever After hits theaters on May 21.

Jessica Biel and Jennifer Garner: ‘Laverne & Shirley’ Remake

Looks like Jessica Biel and Jennifer Garner will star in another film together – a remake of Laverne & Shirley.

Valentine’s Day director, Garry Marshall, who was recently honored at the 18th Annual Night At Sardi’s Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s said that the script is now being written by Valentine’s Day star Jamie Foxx.

He said:
“Jamie and I are trying to do it. He’s writing it. It’s a whole different modern day take on how they came up on the streets during difficult times. Laverne would be this very tough girl with a big ‘L’ tattooed on her arm. Jennifer Garner would play Laverne and Jessica Biel would play Shirley.”

What do YOU think of the remake?

Fox Cancels ‘24′

Bad news 24 fans. Fox has decided to cancel the show after eight seasons.

In a statement, series star Keifer Sutherland said:

“This has been the role of a lifetime, and I will never be able to fully express my appreciation to everyone who made it possible.

While the end of the series is bittersweet, we always wanted 24 to finish on a high note, so the decision to make the eighth season our last was one we all agreed upon.

This feels like the culmination of all our efforts from the writers to the actors to our fantastic crew and everyone at Fox. Looking ahead to the future, [executive producer and showrunner] Howard Gordon and I are excited about the opportunity to create the feature film version of 24.

But when all is said and done, it is the loyal worldwide fan base that made it possible for me to have the experience of playing the role of Jack Bauer, and for that I am eternally grateful.”

The final two-hour episode will air May 24.
