When and why did Matt change his name professionally from Matthew to Matt? Love your blog!
That’s a good question! It’s interesting to look at his filmography to figure this out, too. The first project he did where he was credited as “Matt Bomer” was Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning in 2006. But then he went on to do Traveler (2007) and Chuck (2007-2009) credited as Matthew Bomer. Hmm. And it wasn’t just a TV show/movie thing, because he was credited as “Matthew Bomer” in Flightplan (2005), which was a movie. But since White Collar (2009), he’s gone by Matt Bomer. So aside from the 2006 TCM:B aberration, it seems he went from Matthew to Matt in 2009 when he started White Collar. As to why? Other than Matt sounding less “dorky” than Matthew, I don’t know! Personally, I think it was a good call. :)
And because I’m incapable of answering a simple question in a simple way, here are all the Matt credits from his movies/shows, in chronological order:
[missing credits from All My Children (2000) and Guiding Light (2002-2003) because…I don’t have access to those full eps. And there are no credits included in the War Birds (2003) DVD so nothing for that either (he did voicework). And he wasn’t in Relic Hunter and it really bothers me that that’s still on his imdb page.]
Tru Calling (2003-2004)
North Shore (2004). I can’t believe he got “Guest Starring” for a 20 second bit. lol
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)
[Don’t have Amy Coyne (2006), sadly]
Traveler (2007). They didn’t have a true title sequence for this show. So his name just appeared during the course of the episode. But his name showed up first! :D lol (Also <3 he worked with Viola Davis on this show)
White Collar (2009-2014). OMG I never realized until now that his name (or anyone’s) isn’t actually in the title sequence! Like Traveler, it just shows his name as the ep plays. I mean, I’m sure I noticed, but I guess I never really thought about it. Weird.
Also saw people sending you some Good Headcanons and can I just chime in to spread the good word about Adam with brain damage? He canonically has it and it explains not only his hearing loss but his mood swings and losing time too. And think about this... Cabeswater finding those cracks, Cabeswater communicating the way it does as a way of healing the cracks in his skull and his perception of the world... Adam has post-concussion syndrome and a traumatic brain injury I truly believe this.
We’re having our first parent teacher event at our after school center. I haven’t been this nervous in a very long time. I really hope I don’t do anything to mess things up. It doesn’t help when your a socially awkward person and any type of communication you have with people doesn’t usually go well.
OMG I loved your post break up au post about the emergency contact and was wondering if you're willing to write another?? My favorites were the can't sleep alone so can I sleep with you one more time, the drinking game to decide who gets what or the one where one rushed to the airport but didn't get there in time and the other found out later :)) thanks!!
(this took agES i’m sorry anon but yES AGREE CAN DO i’m gonna pick the sleeping one bcs c’mon that just screams andreil) (additional warning: this is Long AF sorry mobile users)
neil doesn’t know where his life went wrong.
scratch that, he does. when the cousins’ graduation came and went, when the summer left him alone. andrew off to train with his new team, the two of them only having weekends in columbia or andrew’s new place. when the season started back up for neil, the constant thrumming at the back of his head reminding him that this was the season that really counted, the one that could make or break him.
when he decided, alone and thoughts running through his head at breakneck speed, that concentrating on his team, letting andrew focus on his career, would be the best for both of them
(”Is that what you want?” - “Yes.” - “If that’s the case.”)
so it’s not that much of a surprise when he finds himself on andrew’s doorstep at 2am, stolen hotel duvet in his arms, with a disgruntled andrew looking at him
Hey guys fun fact one time I got eyeliner on Zayn but it smudged everywhere and his eyebrows started coming off when I tried to clean it so now when I take pictures of him I have to photoshop his skin so it looks normal yup.
