!! OMG, the next Ryan Gosling? Matthew Bomer !!


It may be too soon to tell, but I've got a hunch that Matthew Bomer is positioning to be the next (gay) Ryan Gosling. The White Collar actor is already a small screen star, but with his highly anticipated, highly shirtless role in Stephen Soderberg's male-stripper movie Magic Mike and now his key role in Ryan Murphy's film version of The Normal Heart, Bomer's status is undeniably on the rise. In the adaptation of Larry Kramer's landmark play, Bomer will play New York Times fashion writer Felix Turner opposite Mark Ruffalo as boyfriend and activist Ned Weeks. And if Bomer can swing a solid, sob-inducing performance, this movie may just well be his Notebook...

I don't think he'll go the route of getting a beard and saying he's straight. If he was the sort of guy who'd do something like that, he'd have done it by now. He'll most likely do what Jodie Foster and Anderson Cooper have done. He'll just let it be an open secret. He seems to be very slowly and carefully coming out in his own low key way.

And just so we're REAL CLEAR about this; Saying "no comment" to the public while ONLY being out to your very closest friends and family is NOT out. "No comment" may be better than lying, but only marginally. It is certainly not ground breaking or progressive. It's an understandable response, but it IS a giant set back.

He'll have to get a beard and say he's straight. If he comes out of the glass closet, he'll be marginalized. That's what happens to gay actors who come out. Sad, but true.

Given how gay actors are treated in Hollywood, the only way he could be "the next Ryan Gossling" is if he pulled a Luke Evans and went even FURTHER into the glass closet, got a beard and said he was straight. Hollywood STILL has not progressed beyond the Rock Hudson era.

I think Matthew is leaps and bounds above Ryan in the looks department, but we all have different tastes of course. He's a good actor too, so I wish him all the best.
