Here’s another sneak peek for the final chappy of Home, which I’m aiming to post in June (60 drawings + Lupus = Julie needs extra time) but now it’s 42 paintings down, 18 to go!! Thanks for your unending patience ♥
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.
I actually dreamed this one, and tried to paint it as accurately as possible. My writing skills are as underdevelopped as my social ones, but I really wanna try to write the story down. Saddest thing my brain ever produced.
PSA: it's a lot easier on Theatre employees if you just go home when the movie ends and not wait until the end of the credits. Especially for Fantastic Beasts. There is no clip at the end, it's not a Marvel movie. And they have other things to do Plz
Captain America: Civil War. The movie ends. Everyone waits for the real end credits scene like the intelligent fans we are. It’s just a few seconds. A quiet room. Mirrors lining the walls. A ballet barre. And a young Natasha spins out of a perfect arabesque to fire six quick successive shots in the target on the opposite wall.
Fade to black. Only a date, the premiere, is left on screen.
