Biography

From the moment he stepped foot onscreen, actor Matthew Bomer succeeded in creating characters that moved and thrilled audiences both in film and on television. After receiving his start on the stages of New York, Bomer made his small screen debut with a small role on "All My Children" (ABC, 1970-2011), before playing the more significant part of Ben Reade for three years on "Guiding Light" (CBS, 1952-2009). He made the leap to primetime with a powerful performance as an ill-fated man dealing with his girlfriend's extraordinary powers of communicating with the dead on the supernatural drama "Tru Calling" (Fox, 2003-05). Moving over to features, Bomer had a supporting role in the Jodie Foster vehicle "Flightplan" (2005) and starred in the prequel "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning" (2006). But it was on television that his talents truly shined. Whether playing a two-timing CIA agent on "Chuck" (NBC, 2007-2012) or a con artist-turned-FBI informant on "White Collar (USA Network, 2009- ), Bomer embodied his characters to become one of Hollywood's most sought after performers.
