    I googled the books before I read them, then read with Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel in mind as the characters. It will be very difficult for me to watch the movie without those two playing Christian and Ana... Even though I know Matt is gay. Neither acting nor the movie itself are real. It's the fantasy I'm looking forward to.

    I think it would embarrass his family all I picture is Kit picking up the script and wanting an explanation at7

    He's perfect for the character, he's freacking HOT and a freaking great actor. When you are a good actor it doesn't matter if you're gay or straight you just gotta be professional, and Matt for sure is one of those. So stop judging his acting because of his sexuality!

    He is gay... it will ruin the fantacy completely... He doesn't like women... Can a racist man play a husband to woman of color??? no... so i am sorry but he is gay. Adding to that when he appeared in Magic Mike... I was completely un attracted to him, and this was not by his appearance... Something was up, and there I knew he was gay. I didn't even have to google it... SO no he isn't a good fit.

    So an actor who doesn't want children can never take on roles as a parent?
    I guess this fool was also upset that ian McKellen was cast as gandalf because Ian doesn't cast magic spells in real life.

    Mary, you can't even spell "fantasy," so I suppose it would be difficult for you to get past the gay thing. The movie's purpose isn't to turn you on -- sorry your husband or boyfriend can't satisfy you, you sicko.

    Bomer is goodlooking but doesn't have a good build. Too slim and not very masculine hands. He's metrosexual looking. Get someone like Henry Cavill.

    just occurred to me......
    Which ....once again Ladies & Gents, makes Bommer PERFECT for the role!!!

    @ disgusted by Bret Easton Ellis

    They thought he was gay bc he never brought women around, not bc how he acted. Also, he never seemed to act that way with Ana.

    okay since Bret Easton Ellis says that only if he were straight would he be able to play the role.
    I'd like to reverse the situation and see what he says....
    who were the actors in Broke Back?
    were they gay in real-life?
    no yet i think they did a pretty damn good job convincing the rest of us watching the movie!!!
    thats what being an actor is all about....
    its not about what you do in your personal life....i mean who cares what you do behind closed doors.. thats your problem!!!!

    Matt Bomer wont be casted just because he is gay in really life...... i mean are you for serious!!!!have you looked up the term ACTING in the dictionary? these people are called ACTORS for a reason. i mean if they weren't meant to be acting then it would become a reality show..... i mean its a fantasy novel for crying out loud!!!........

    It really should not matter if Matt Bomer is gay or not as to whether he gets this role. He is an actor and he gets paid to do just that. ACT.
    I can think of plenty of gay actors that play onscreen straight, or straight actors that play a gay role; and quite convincingly might I add. It just shows that they can act well as different characters..which, indeed, is the whole point of acting.
