When I learned in the past (about a year ago or so) that Matt Bomer was not considered to play the role of Christian Grey for the movie adaptation of the massive hit novel 50 Shades of Grey, I was glad. Besides the face of Matt Bomer is buckets-full prettier that the visualized looks of Christian Grey.
I was glad that I will never have to be compelled on seeing that movie, because otherwise, I would have to watch it simply because Matt was in it. Though 50 Shades of Grey was a massive hit novel series, I can profess that I am among the few adults on this planet who has not read it. And I don’t have any plans neither intentions of reading it anytime soon or anytime in the future. Reason? I actually don’t know.
I guess destiny did not allow Matt Bomer to star in 50 Shades because the universe intended him to star in a much much better material that is The Normal Heart. I saw this HBO film, adapted from the autobiographical play with the same title two months ago. And this movie definitely deserves an Emmy-worthy recognition for Matt. His characterization on his role as Felix in the film was no big joke. He loosed 35 pounds for it.
But beyond Matt’s physical transformation in the film, he was hauntingly amazing in this movie! He was the heart-wrencher in the story that will make you feel the pain. I saw the film 2 months ago and yet the drama, the thunderous message and Matt’s powerful performance still lingers in my mind. His character was definitely louder than the beat of a normal heart.
The Normal Heart is out for sale on DVD and Blu-ray format on August 28, 2014 – which I predict as – 3 days after Matt Bomer has gone home with an Emmy trophy.
Mat Bamer Por Da Win!
