Matt Bomer grew up in Texas in a family of 3 children. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh with a degree in Drama, he moved to New York City, where he worked in the theater for a few years. With this experience on the stage, he got his first roles on the small screen in the soaps La Force du destin and Haine et Passions, then continued in 2003 with the first season of Tru Calling: Countdown. In it, he plays Tru Davies’ boyfriend (Eliza Dushku), a medical student who relives the last day of the dead who ask him for help.

In 2005, Bomer starred in his first feature film, Flight Plan, starring Jodie Foster and Peter Sarsgaard. In 2007, Bomer landed one of the lead roles in the series Traveler: Enemies of State, which was unfortunately quickly cancelled, and was then chosen to play the spy Bryce Larkin in Chuck. A character not very present but with the capital importance since it is him who is at the origin of the transfer of the Intersect in the head of Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi). At the same time, the American actor, who is beginning to be talked about, also plays in the horror film Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, opposite Jordana Brewster.

It is finally in 2009 that Matt Bomer sees his career take a new dimension, thanks to the USA Network FBI series: a very special duo. Co-starring in the show with Tim DeKay, he plays Neal Caffrey, who underneath his charming gentleman’s looks, is actually hiding a very cunning forger and thief. Arrested by Peter Burke, he agrees, in exchange for his freedom, to help the FBI catch the criminals. Not giving up the big screen, the actor continues to expand his film career with Andrew Niccol’s Time Out and Magic Mike, immersed in the world of male striptease signed Steven Soderbergh, in which he is Ken, one of the heroes, alongside Channing Tatum, in 2012.

After six seasons, FBI: a very special duet stops in 2014 but Bomer is soon back at work, whether with the melodrama Un amour d’hiver, worn by Colin Farrell, or the science fiction film Space Station 76. He also continues to shoot for American television and is notably part of the cast of the TV movie The Normal Heart by Ryan Murphy, relating the rise of the AIDS virus in the 1980s, as well as an episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

In 2015, Matt Bomer returned to his stripper character for Magic Mike XXL, directed by Gregory Jacobs. He then returned to the small screen to star again in American Horror Story: Hotel, the fifth season of the anthology show on FX, which saw him lend his features to Donovan, a guest of the hotel run by Lady Gaga. In parallel to this new television adventure, the handsome young man is part of the cast of several prestigious productions, including a remake of The Seven Mercen Men signed Antoine Fuqua, or The Nice Guys by Shane Black, in which he gives the line to Ryan Gosling and Russel Crowe.
