In an example of pitch perfect casting, “White Collar” and “Magic Mike” actor Matt Bomer is set to portray screen legend Montgomery Clift in the biopic “Monty Clift”.
Producer Michael Din confirmed that Bomer landed the lead role in the film which will begin shooting next year ahead of a 2015 release.
The story centers on the bisexual Clift’s relationship with Elizabeth Taylor following the filming of 1951’s “A Place in the Sun,” the iconic role considered one of the great performances of all time.
Bomer will also be seen in next year’s HBO adaptation of the Larry Kramer play “The Normal Heart” and Akiva Goldsman’s “Winter’s Tale.”
