Matt Bomer, last seen starring opposite Lady Gaga in American Horror Story: Hotel, has landed a new TV series gig.
The Golden Globe Award winning actor will star in the series The Last Tycoon for Amazon Studios opposite Kelsey Grammer.
The pilot streamed last month and was seen as a strong contender to become a series, according to Deadline Hollywood.
The show is set in 1930s Hollywood and is based on the final unfinished novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Inspired by the life of film mogul Irving Thalberg and his rise to power, Bomer plays studio executive Monroe Stahr who it pitted against the studio head who was also his mentor (Grammer) who is based on Louis B. Mayer.
Since coming out publicly as a gay man in 2012, Bomer has continued to work non-stop in gay and straight roles.
After wrapping up a six season run on TV’s White Collar in 2014, he starred in AHS: Hotel, in the Magic Mike feature film and its sequel, and was nominated for an Emmy and won a Golden Globe Award for his performance in HBO’s The Normal Heart.
Bomer also appeared in The Nice Guys with Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe and has a role in The Magnificent Seven with Chris Pratt and Denzel Washington.
