Video: Matt Bomer Hopes To Be In Magic Mike XXL-See His DETAILS Magazine Photo Shoot

For anyone heartbroken that Matt Bomer did not portray Mr. Grey, take consolation. He hopes to reprise his role as stripper Ken in Magic Mike XXL. Also, you can watch the above video of his photo shoot for the May 2014 cover of Details Magazine for a little bit of Matt’s dashing good looks! Sigh.

He told Details Magazine, “[Channing Tatum] is so great and gracious and [Matthew McConaughey] was such a great leader that everybody had a great time. So if it were to come together under the right circumstances with a good script, which I’m sure [Reid Carolin] is putting together, it’ll be really fun to do.”

During the cover shoot for Details, Bomer was inevitably asked about Fifty Shades of Grey. He said he had “no idea” why he was seen as a frontrunner for Christian Grey. “Obviously, I’m incredibly flattered that so many people thought of me. To be honest with you, I’ve never read any of the books so I don’t know what it was that tipped people off that way or made them think of me, but it was sort of like this really strange and interesting cloud that came in and went away I guess. I’m sure it’s great though. I bet the movie is going to be amazing.”

Of his costars in “White Collar” he says:”[Channing Tatum] is so great and gracious and [Matthew McConaughey] was such a great leader that everybody had a great time,” he said. “So if it were to come together under the right circumstances with a good script, which I’m sure [Reid Carolin] is putting together, it’ll be really fun to do.” “Those guys, we had such a criminally good time working together. It was like a band of thieves really,” he said. “We just hit it off. It was such an ensemble mentality, which didn’t have to be the case under those circumstances.”

Bomer’s next role is in The Normal Heart on HBO.

Jamie Dornan Needs Time Out From Tying Women Up


Jamie Dornan has had a whirlwind 12 months.

He got married, had a baby, landed the role of Christian Grey, shot the movie under much public scrutiny, starred in THE FALL and shot season 2, starred in NEW WORLDS, as well as the movie FLYING HOME, and won big awards.

He’s a little tired, he told the Guardian UK in a piece published Monday, April 21.

“Right now I don’t need to work if there’s nothing that I want to do. I’ve done three jobs back to back. Let’s see how they are received. If there’s nothing I want to do, I’ll just play golf and change [diapers].”

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY is of course the project we are all waiting for. He admits between FIFTY and THE FALL, he has picked up some new rope tricks.

“There are a couple of classic knots I know now,” he told the Guardian, “and I’ve put them to good use far too many times recently. In fact I’d like to do a job where I don’t have to tie women to beds.”

Of course readers are hoping he gets his tying-to-a-bed mojo back in time to shoot FIFTY SHADES OF GREY movie 2.


New Magic Mike Movie Due in July 2015


Channing Tatum’s stripper with a heart of gold will be back on July 3, 2015, according to CNN.

And hopefully he will be bringing all his hot, half naked friends.

The first Magic Mike in 2012, also starred Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Alex Pettyfer.

* Tatum told CNN he thinks the the same crew of hotties will return but not all details are settled yet.

* The new film will move the action from Florida clubs and be a road trip movie.

* Instead of calling it Magic Mike 2 it will be “Magic Mike XXL.”

* Tatum is writing and producing “XXL” with Reid Carolin.

* Gregory Jacobs directing.

The drug issues and dark side of Magic Mike will not be in part 2.

“We don’t want to make some dark drama” Tatum told reporters. “There was some darkness in the last movie and I think it surprised people and shocked people. This one, we want to have a lot of conflict and a lot of struggle, but we also want there to be a shit ton of fun. A shit ton of ridiculous stuff that you would never see in a movie, on the face of the earth, ever again”.

    Why The Elevator Kiss In ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Is So Memorable


    By A. C. Rose

    I did a term paper on Fifty Shades of Grey for my “Theories of Love and Romance” class. Fans of the book will enjoy this excerpt about the elevator scene and why it was so powerful.

    In fairy tales, the kiss is the thing that can awakens the sleeping princess or turns the frog or beast back into a prince. Ana wanted that! But in Fifty Shades of Grey it was a refused kiss that first fueled the flames of Ana Steele’s intrigue and desire.

    Christian invited Ana for coffee, and on the way back to his hotel she is nearly run over by a speeding cyclist. Christian catches her from falling. “It all happened so fast—one minute I’m falling, and the next I’m in his arms and he’s holding me tightly… He’s staring into my eyes, and I hold his anxious, burning gaze for a moment or maybe it’s forever … but eventually, my attention is drawn to his beautiful mouth. And for the first time in my 21 years, I want to be kissed. I want to feel his mouth on mine.” (p. 48)

    They are both deeply drawn and moved by this moment, but Christian, knowing her innocence and his own darkness, refuses to kiss her.

    “Anastasia, you should steer clear of me. I’m not the man for you,” he whispers. She leaves the situation fearing she’s misread his interest and he leaves even more desirous of her.

    When they finally do kiss, it is in an uncontainable eruption of passion and it is the action that fully launches the erotic adventure between Christian and Ana—and the reader. It, of course, occurs at the Heathman Hotel, before the characters have had a sexual experience, and before Ana has signed the NDA (Non-disclosure agreement) that Christian insisted must be in place before their relationship could begin.

    Since paperwork and agreements were a huge part of book one in the trilogy, this scene showed the sheer force of their attraction and illustrates so many of the erotic cues that got the heroine, and the reader, so fully engaged in the story. This passage has become legendary among fans.

    “We walk in silence down the corridor toward the elevator. As we wait I peek up at him through my lashes, and he looks out of the corner of his eyes down at me. I smile, and his lips twitch.
    The elevator arrives, and we step in. We’re alone. Suddenly, for some reason, possibly our proximity in such enclosed space, the atmosphere between us changes, charged with an electric, exhilarating anticipation. My breathing alters as my heart races. His head turns fractionally toward me, his eyes darkest slate. I bite my lip.”

    “Oh, fuck the paperwork,” he growls. He lunges at me, pushing me against the wall of the elevator. Before I know it, he’s got both of my hands in a viselike grip above my head, and he’s pinning me to the wall using his hips. Holy sh-t. His other hand grabs my hair and yanks down, bringing my face, up and his lips are on me. It’s not painful. I moan into his mouth, giving his tongue an opening. He takes full advantage, his tongue expertly exploring my mouth. I have never been kissed like this. My tongue tentatively strokes his and joins his in a slow, erotic dance that is all about touch and sensation, all bump and grind. He brings his hand up to grasp my chin and holds me in place. I’m helpless, my hands pinned, my face held, and his hips restraining me. His erection against my belly. Oh my… He wants me. Christian Grey, Greek God, wants me, and I want him here, here, now, in the elevator.” (P. 77-78)

    When the elevator stops and the kiss abruptly ended, they walk out to the lobby: “I struggle to keep up with him because my wits have been thoroughly and royally scattered all over the floors and walls of elevator three in the Heathman Hotel.” Ana goes off to work still reeling from the experience. “The memory of our kiss this morning comes back to haunt me. I have thought of nothing else all day… to say I was distracted would be the understatement of the year.” (P. 87)

    Understanding the chemistry of a kiss can help explain the desire and sexual awakening Ana felt, as well as understanding why she felt fragmented afterwards, and distracted, because the kiss ended suddenly.

    In The Science of Kissing, Sheril Kirshenbaum says that a lot goes on in the body before a kiss, and a tremendous amount occurs once the lips touch.

    “During a passionate kiss, our blood vessels dilate and receive more oxygen than normal to the brain. Our breathing becomes irregular and deepen; our cheeks flush, our pulse quickens, and our pupils dilate, which may be one reason so many of us closes our eyes.”

    “Perhaps most important of all, when we kiss, all five of our senses are busy transmitting messages to the brain. Billions of little nerve connections are at work, firing away and distributing signals around our bodies. Eventually, these signals reach what is called the somatosensory cortex: the region of the brain that processes feelings of touch, temperature, pain, and more. Here they are interpreted, resulting in thought such as: ‘Did he just have onions?’ or ‘where is that hand wondering.'”

    Ana was pretty taken with where his hands wandered and this kiss set the stage for the passion that would ensue. “A kiss is more than a kiss,” writes Judith Horstman in The Scientific American Book on Love, Sex, and the Brain. “It is an intimate exchange of scents, tastes, textures, secrets, and emotions. A touch of the lips triggers a cascade of neural messages and chemicals that transmit tactile sensations and sensual excitement, feelings of closeness, motivation, and even euphoria.”
