Towleroad EXCLUSIVE: Matt Bomer and Matthew Morrison in on '8'

Bomer_morrison

BY ARI EZRA WALDMAN

Towleroad has learned that Matt Bomer, star of the hit USA drama, White Collar, and Matthew Morrison, who plays Mr. Schuester on the popular show Glee, will play plaintiffs Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, respectively, at the March 3 west coast premier of Dustin Lance Black's play, 8, in Los Angeles. The American Foundation for Equal Rights, the organization sponsoring the plaintiffs' legal team in the federal challenge to Prop 8, could not be reached for comment.

Earlier this week, it was announced that George Clooney would be playing the part of attorney David Boies.

Black's 8, which already had a successful premier in New York, is based on the transcripts from the trial proceedings before Judge Vaughn Walker in Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now captioned, Perry v. Brown). As you will recall, Judge Walker declared Prop 8 unconstitutional, and we expect the Ninth Circuit to issue its ruling any day now. Stay tuned for news updates and legal analysis of the upcoming decision.

Matthew Morrison's Bod Does Details

Morrison

Glee's Mr. Schue Matthew Morrison shows off the body he got as a dancer on the December cover of Details.

One thing the article makes clear: he's not gay.

"By his sophomore year he had dropped out of NYU and become a regular performer on Broadway. As a young heterosexual in a scene dominated by women and gay men, he was bathed in attention. 'There was so much opportunity,' he says. 'There were all these beautiful, beautiful dancers. As a straight guy I had some room. There were the shared interests in singing and dancing, and I always find dancing with someone very evocative and sexual. I definitely hooked up with a lot of girls when I was a young guy on Broadway. It was exciting. Very joyous and free.'"
