There will be nothing white collar — or normal — about Matt Bomer’s next TV gig.
EW has learned that the Emmy nominee will guest star on one episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show. Creator Ryan Murphy broke the news himself at EW’s Emmy Party saying he’s excited to reunite once again with the “amazing” actor, who is nominated this year for his performance in The Normal Heart, also directed by Murphy.
“I try to get him to do everything for me,” Murphy told EW. “I sent him a text that said, ‘First right of refusal, here’s the role.’ It’s very…warped.” Murphy said he had to work around Bomer’s schedule filming Magic Mike 2 in order to make the appearance work.
American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on FX on Wednesday, October 8th.
Matt Bomer’s White Collar cons are coming to an end. Although USA has not yet made the drama’s conclusion official — the network often holds off on making a “final season” announcement until a show’s last episodes have begun airing, as was the case with Psych — White Collar creator and executive producer Jeff Eastin tells EW that he has crafted a satisfying conclusion to the series, which stars Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay.
After protracted negotiations, USA finally renewed White Collar in March for a sixth season of just six episodes. “The really nice thing about six episodes is that it almost feels like a limited series,” says Eastin, whose other USA drama, Graceland, returns for its second season on June 11. “We’ve got just enough room for one really beautiful plot: What is the last adventure these guys go on?” READ FULL STORY
No one expects to get through HBO’s adaptation of The Normal Heart, Larry Kramer’s semiautobiographical play about the rise of AIDS in New York in the early 1980s, without sobbing. But just listening to director Ryan Murphy describe Matt Bomer’s severe weight loss to play Felix Turner, a New York Times style writer whose body is decimated by the disease, will likely get you misty. HBO allowed Murphy to shut down production from July to November last year so Bomer could lose 40 pounds. “I literally think I burst into tears when I saw him, I was so worried for his health,” Murphy told Entertainment Weekly Radio. “I was so worried for his health, because he had taken it taken it to such a level. He was in a chair getting a haircut, and he could barely turn to greet me, he was so weak. But he carried the weight of all the ghosts of those people who had died. I remember he had a very big nude scene in the shower scene, where he had to basically collapse. And that was always the height of his thinness. And we’re like, ‘Okay, after this scene, you’re gonna be in clothes, so you can start to bulk up again hopefully….’ So to celebrate, he had a cracker. He threw up the cracker. His body had been so deprived for so long that he couldn’t hold any food.”
Listen to a clip of Murphy’s chat with EW Morning Live host Dalton Ross below. He also explains why Bomer and Mark Ruffalo, who plays Felix’s partner Ned, cried for 20 minutes after filming Bomer’s final scene. READ FULL STORY

Ryan Murphy’s upcoming adaptation of the play The Normal Heart for HBO just got more star-studded.
