Jesse Tyler Ferguson is an HIGHlarious actor and an integral part of one of TV's best sitcoms, but comparing him to Matt Bomer is like comparing apples to oranges… you know, if the orange was way seksier and studlier than the apple. (No offense, JTF. We think you're handsome too!)
Most agree Bomer is an ideal candidate to play Christian Grey in any forthcoming 50 Shades film adaptations.
Bret Easton Ellis begs to differ.
Via Twitter he said:
Fifty Shades of Grey: Casting Matt Bomer is the equivalent as casting Jesse Tyler Ferguson…
— Bret Easton Ellis (@BretEastonEllis) August 5, 2012
We don't know whether Bret's remarks refer to the sexual orientation of the two actors or some other similarity but he missed the mark.
As anyone who has seen Magic Mike can tell you, Bomer is one of the best looking dudes in the game. His charm and charisma would enable him to pull off a very convincing Christian.
Ferguson, while great at what he does, is perhaps less suited to play that particular brand of alpha male.
We're not sure what kind of cray juice Bret put in his sippy-cup but we hope casting decisions are left to someone else!!
