50 Shades of Grey movie favorite Matt Bomer was recently honored in a way that will make many Fifty fans happy.
The White Collar star was featured in People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive issue, and he was the only gay celebrity to make an appearance in it. So doesn’t that technically make him the Sexiest Gay Man Alive?
Some Bomer fans will probably argue that he should be the gorgeous guy on the cover of the issue instead of this year’s winner Channing Tatum, who happens to be another favorite for the role of Christian Grey in the 50 Shades movie. However, since Matt isn’t a major movie star like his Magic Mike costar, it’s pretty impressive that he managed to snag a spot in the issue.
Surely the 50 Shades of Grey movie casting speculation had something do with the People editors’ decision to feature Matt Bomer in the mag. He appears on tons of Fifty fans’ casting wish lists, and he’s actually managed to beat heavy Christian Grey favorite Ian Somerhalder in some fan polls.
Fifty fantasy casting made headlines this year when American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis got in a Twitter battle with Bomer fans. Ellis claimed that the handsome actor wouldn’t be able to play sex control freak Christian convincingly because he’s gay, but enough fans complained about this ridiculous assertion that Ellis later recanted. He then claimed that he doesn’t think Matt is a good enough actor to play the part.
Another man with a 50 Shades connection appears in the Sexiest Man Alive issue – Max Greenfield. His New Girl character Schmidt recently signed a sex contract drawn up by his new female boss (so he’s basically become Anastasia Steele).
Who knows? Maybe being dubbed two of the sexiest men alive will help Matt or Max get cast as Christian in the 50 Shades movie.
