Matt Bomer Channels Elvis in New Photos

By: Michael Matson

Coming out last February seems to have given legs to Matt Bomer’s career. The dashing White Collar star is playing Darren Criss’ older brother on Glee’s April 10th episode, has the highly-anticipated stripper flick Magic Mike set for a June release, and is modeling ‘50’s-inspired clothing for the latest issue of GQ Style Italia, which we previewed in February.

In this stylish session, the 34-year-old actor channels Elvis Presley and other iconic performers from rock ‘n’ roll’s infancy. And while some actors don’t always shine as bright for the still camera like they do on the silver screen, Bomer delivers dynamic charisma in these photos by Kurt Iswarienko. Each image feels more like a still from a music legend biopic than a fashion photo. Certainly Iswarienko’s skilled eye was a major factor in that end result, but Bomer seems distinctly at home in rocker gear. Since we know he can can sing, it doesn’t seem such a stretch to cast Bomer as gene Vincent in a movie about the Be-Bop-A-Lula singer. Just sayin’.
