Matt Bomer on ‘Fellow Travelers,’ Being Gay in Hollywood and ‘White Collar’

Matt Bomer, the guest on this episode of The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, is a talented and dashing actor and producer. Bomer made his name on the USA drama series White Collar (2009-2014) and in films such as 2012’s Magic Mike. He later won Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards and was nominated for an Emmy for his turn in the 2014 HBO movie adaptation of Larry Kramer’s play The Normal Heart. Most recently, he has garnered some of the best reviews of his career for his portrayal of a closeted State Dept. employee in a decades-spanning secret relationship with another man on the 2023 Showtime limited series Fellow Travelers, for which he has already won a Peabody Award and been nominated for Golden Globe, SAG, Critics Choice and People’s Choice awards.

Over the course of this episode, the 46-year-old reflects on his own journey as a gay man in Hollywood (he came out to the public in 2012); his many collaborations with Ryan Murphy, from episodes of The New Normal and Glee to The Normal Heart to numerous installments of the American Horror Story franchise and even directing an episode of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story; why he felt so passionate about Fellow Travelers from the moment he read it, and what sort of impact he hopes it will have; plus more.
