The “White Collar” actor says he was “incredibly flattered” that many considered him perfect for the role. He added that it came as a surprise as he personally never read any of the books.
“I don’t know what it was that tipped people off that way or made them think of me, but it was really strange and interesting. I’m sure it’s great though. I bet the movie is going to be amazing,” he told E! News. Bomer says he’s also looking forward to see the movie when it hits theaters next month.
