Actor Matt Bomer has spoken about his upcoming role as Montgomery Clift in the biopic Monty Clift. Bomer revealed that he feels a strong connection to the Hollywood icon and has admired his work for a long time. Bomer first noticed the physical resemblance between himself and Clift when he was a young child.
However, it is Clift's personal story that has particularly interested Bomer. Despite being considered one of the greatest actors of his generation, Clift battled with personal demons and struggled to keep his homosexuality a secret in a repressive era. Bomer believes that it is important for people to remember Clift's accomplishments and wants a new generation of people to learn about him. The biopic is still in development and Bomer has said that they will not make the film unless it is done right.
