Beautiful Matt Bomer To Play Beautiful Montgomery Clift. Call It Method Acting.

matt-bomer_montgomery-cliftIt must be tough to be as good looking as Matt Bomer, having to play such studs as Ken in Magic Mike, Neal Caffrey on White Collar, and now, Montgomery Clift in Monty Clift.

The handsome, talented, and gay actor, who last year appeared in HBO’s critically acclaimed adaptation of The Normal Heart, may have to tap into his personal experiences to play the handsome, talented, and gay Clift in the cable network’s upcoming bio flick.

With a script by Christopher Lovick and Love Is Strange writers Ira Sachs and Mauricio Zacharias, the story is said to focus on Clift’s relationship with his A Place in the Sun co-star Elizabeth Taylor, who became a lifelong friend (and, for a time, possibly more).

There’s no word yet on when the film will air or who’s playing Taylor (we’re praying it’s not Lindsay Lohan), so to tide you over, here are some pics of Clift for your salivating pleasure.
