Matty to star in The Last Tycoon pilot \o/  
Just helping to spread the news, heee :D Thanks to angelita26 for the heads up, as usual, I fail at news unless someone points me to it, LOL :D

Matt Bomer, coming off a starring role in American Horror Story: Hotel, has been tapped as the lead in The Last Tycoon, Amazon Studios’ drama pilot based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final unfinished novel. The project, from Sony’s TriStar Television, was quietly ordered earlier this month as cast-contingent. The casting of Bomer lifts the contingency, clearing the pilot for production.

Awesome! Does this mean I have to get an Amazon account though? Sigh.

Well, it depends on whether they will get picked up for a full season order... usually Amazon makes the pilots available for free :D So until a full season is ordered, we should be okay without Amazon Prime :D

Nice. The wonderful thing about shows that are developed by Netflix, Hulu or Amazon is that the sites know *exactly* how many people are watching and can base a show's renewal off real data. With regular cable and 'Nelson families' they don't get as good an idea of what their viewership is like.

Wohoo!! That's exactly that kind of news you want to hear on Monday evening (or any day of the week XD) Our boy's a busy bee!!

I totally love this pic - he's so content on this one (and so friggin' adorable!) On a side note, I always have to crack up about his wayward bow tie XD

Oh, and kan - we gladly help out, especially when's about any of our men! XD

Great news and all, but really the only thing I'm mesmerized by is the crooked bow tie. HE'S ALWAYS WEARING CROOKED BOW TIES! ♥ Oh Matty. *smishes him*

Ha, like I said in my comment above - it's a job ad - bow tie manager... :P

Yeah, especially when he is wearing his geeky glasses, heeee :D

The lead you say? In a pilot for a whole series? And we can watch it for free? Awesome!
What would I do without you and sandy79 ;)
I just caught up on American Horror Hotel.

So, have any of you read the short story already?
kanarek13: snuggleskanarek13 on November 25th, 2015 09:35 am (UTC)
Heee, yeah, I just hope amazon continues with their trend - first ep free :D The bad news is I will have to rely on someone else to deliver the material suitable for capping - unlike iTunes, amazon is a pain in that department... but hopefully it will work out :D

As for the novel, sadly I didn't have time to tackle it but I have it on my desktop waiting :)
