Matt Bomer fans may want the seksi star won't be in 50 Shades Of Grey, but it looks like they're going to have to settle for black and white.

The Magic Mike star will be fulfilling a personal dream to portray actor Montgomery Clift! He told GQ Italia last year:

"I would love to do a Montgomery Clift biopic. I would love to just keep working with really great directors who really inspire me."

And now it's coming true! Matt has been cast in the title role of Monty Clift, the story of the affair between Montgomery and his A Place In The Sun costar Elizabeth Taylor!

After Lindsay Lohan and Helena Bonham Carter, who will be playing his Liz? We can't wait to find out!

But she better be good- because Matt is the spitting image of the iconic Montgomery!

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) of both actors in their prime.

    Delighted to see Matt finally get a leading role. I was a Montgomery Clift fan & I love Matt Bomer. However, they do not look alike to me. I hope Matt doesn't try to get as skinny as Clift was. I think his acting ability can tell the story. For Liz, they need someone with the violet eyes and fair skin who can do the soft sexy voice. I'll have to think about that some more.

    Monty was a lot more masculine than Matt…..

    Go Matt Bomer! Finally a well deserved and a well earned role for you. This is perfect casting. The only actor from today's lot that I think has the acting chops, the talent, and the elegance to play Monty. This is going to be epic.
    I hope the script is great, the director Larry Moss is a good choice i think.

    Perez, Elizabeth Taylor never had an affair with Monty, they were best friends and he was GAY. She said they never slept together, that he came out to her when she was 19, and that she tried to set him up with men after that.

    Re: Skiwitch – Look at the pathetic past attempts at bringing Elizabeth Taylor to the small screen with Helena Bonham Carter and recently Lindsay Lohan portraying her and you will get an idea of how difficult it is to get an actress who can tackle portraying a legend.

    I don't think Liz was so great and whatever if Monty was gay or what Liz said, they may have slept together. But it's not as if they were going to tell the entire world about their story… So I guess we'll never know.
    Or you can choose to trust her.
