You can't blame Matt Bomer for having such a devoted Twitter fan base; have you seen those crystal blue eyes? Just weeks after the White Collar star spoke out about Change.org's petition to cast both himself and Alexis Bledel as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele for the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey (Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson have secured the roles), news broke that Bomer will instead star as the silver screen icon, Montgomery Clift, in the upcoming biopic, Monty Clift. According to ET Online, the film will focus on a young Clift as he falls in love with Elizabeth Taylor after the two starred in the 1951 drama-turned-classic A Place in the Sun. Following the announcement, fans took to Twitter to relay (vent?) their feelings of Bomer's next career role; while some of them varied with excitement, fans are still upset that Bomer will not be taking on the role of the infamous Christian Grey. Scroll down to see all of their reactions!
