  • -Yeah! -Hey. How you doing, man?

  • -Matt Bomer, it's always great to see you.

  • I was just talking to Maya Rudolph.

  • I think I still have glue on my face from doing this.

  • And we were talking about Kamala.

  • And last time you were here,

  • I made a pitch that you should play Tom Brady.

  • And I meant it.

  • And I was thinking, like, is there any politician

  • that you think you'd be good at playing?

  • -Well, first of all, I need to start commissioning you,

  • because people come up to me on the street

  • and think that that's a real movie.

  • And they ask for updates about the Tom Brady biopic.

  • -It should be a Tom Brady biopic.

  • There should be one. -And I'm like, "Ask Jimmy."

  • -I'm good at this. I have an idea.

  • How about this? -Yes.

  • -I think you should do JFK.

  • -Yeah. I was going to say it would have to be a Kennedy.

  • That would be the dream. -Or JFK Jr.

  • -I really believe that.

  • -I love that American dynasty kind of thing

  • that they got going on.

  • That's it. -I think you could crush it.

  • -That's it. Let's put it out there.

  • -We're going to put it out there.

  • I'm telling you, there is at least four Kennedy movies

  • in the works, getting ready right now.

  • I know for a fact. -Yeah.

  • -So, Matt Bomer would be perfect to play,

  • really, any of the Kennedys.

  • -Alright. I'm in. I'm in. -Alright, I put it out there.

  • Let me know what happens.

  • Oh, this is going to be exciting.

  • You're quarantining with your husband

  • and your three teenage sons.

  • -Yes. -You posted this.

  • I follow your -- You're great on Instagram, by the way.

  • -Oh, thanks, man. -And I love following you.

  • And one of the things that you said --

  • the best things you watched in quarantine

  • was the Beastie Boys documentary.

  • -Oh. -That was -- that was great.

  • Are you -- Were you a big fan growing up?

  • -Huge fan.

  • I mean, I'll never forget -- it's so iconic to me,

  • when my brother got the "Licensed to Ill" tape.

  • -Yeah. -That's how old I am.

  • -It was the tape. -Oh, yeah.

  • -And I knew how to, like, turn it around to rewind it

  • to get right back to the beginning of the song

  • on the other side, because I didn't have

  • the boom box that had rewind on it.

  • -So you fast-forwarded it?

  • -Remember you used to have to flip it around and fast-forward?

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • -We used to do that. That's such a great reference.

  • -Dude, the best. And they just blew my mind, man.

  • I mean, I'm still such a huge fan of Ad-Rock,

  • and they just -- I was like, "What is going on

  • in the world outside of suburban Texas?"

  • And Spike Jonze is one of my favorite filmmakers,

  • so it was just like that meme of eating popcorn.

  • Like, I couldn't get enough.

  • It could have gone on for two more hours.

  • -I love those guys so much. -Me too.

  • -I read somewhere that you used to write songs to them

  • when you were a little kid.

  • Do you remember doing this?

  • -Oh, this is so humbling.

  • I started writing poetry when I was 7 or 8.

  • -Wow.

  • -And my first poem was called "Kingdoms in Conflict."

  • Started with some light subject matter there.

  • Just keeping it light.

  • -7 years old? "Kingdoms in Conflict."

  • -And my older brother actually found it,

  • which, for me, was like, obviously,

  • my biggest nightmare at that time,

  • because I was fully expecting him to just, like, lacerate me.

  • -Yeah. Read it in front of everybody.

  • -As big brothers are supposed to do.

  • And he read it and he was just like, "Wow.

  • Okay, man." -"This kid's deep.

  • Matt's on a different level." -"This is pretty deep.

  • Go ahead.

  • You go do -- You go have your kingdoms in conflict.

  • I'll be here with my G.I. Joes when you're ready.

  • -Oh, that would be a great song.

  • -I think it should be the title of our JFK biopic.

  • It's going to be "Kingdoms in Conflict."

  • -Again, someone is watching this writing

  • "Kingdoms in Conflict."

  • And I can't wait for you to be in it,

  • because, honestly, when you win your Oscar for it,

  • you have to just -- You don't even have to say my name.

  • You don't even have to say my name.

  • Just straighten your bow tie or something.

  • I'll know it's for me. I'll know it's for me.

  • -I'll just -- I'm going to just, like,

  • bring up a picture of you

  • and just put it in front of your picture

  • and walk offstage.

  • -No. I want you to do that,

  • and then I'll know we have this forever, this bond.

  • And then we'll come on the show. We'll talk about it.

  • We'll show this clip. That's the way it all works.

  • Last time, I think we talked --

  • You were talking about "The Boys in the Band"

  • on Broadway.

  • -Yes.

  • -It was a play that you guys revived.

  • And you actually won a Tony.

  • And you're now in this film.

  • It's a Netflix film with the exact same cast.

  • -Yes. -Can you set up what it's about?

  • -Yeah. It's about this group of eight guys

  • who all gather together for a birthday party

  • at an apartment in New York in 1968,

  • just pre-Stonewall.

  • It's a group of eight gay friends.

  • And the arrival of an unexpected visitor/interloper

  • sort of throws the whole night into chaos

  • and calls all the relationships with themselves and each other

  • and society into question.

  • And, at the same time, it's, also, I think, really funny.

  • So it's got a little something for everybody.

  • -I loved it. I thought it was fantastic.

  • It was well done. And what a cast, too.

  • -I love those guys, man.

  • We had the best time on Broadway.

  • We were that cast that, like, came to the stage door early

  • to hang out with each other and hung out afterwards.

  • We had epic karaoke nights, where I would get

  • different glam-rock wigs for us to wear.

  • And I think that sense of ensemble that you kind of earn,

  • as you know from being on something like "SNL,"

  • from doing this show live eight times a week,

  • I think we were able to kind of bring that to the film.

  • -Yeah. It's good stuff. I love it so much.

  • I want to show everyone a clip.

  • Here are Matt Bomer and Jim Parsons in

  • "The Boys in the Band."

  • Take a look at this.

  • -You in a blue funk because of the doctor?

  • -Christ, no.

  • I was depressed long before I got there.

  • -Well, this should pick you up.

  • I went shopping today and I bought all sorts of goodies.

  • Look. Sandalwood soap.

  • -I feel better already. -Mm-hmm. Got in here...

  • Oh, your very own toothbrush,

  • because I am sick to death of you using mine.

  • -How do you think I feel?

  • -You've had worse things in your mouth.

  • Oh, also for you.

  • Something called Control.

  • Notice nowhere is it called hair spray.

  • Just simply Control

  • and the words "for man" written about 37 times

  • all over the goddamn can.

  • -It's called butch assurance.

  • -Well, it's still hair spray, no matter if they call it Balls.

  • -Matt Bomer.

  • "The Boys in the Band" is streaming right now on Netflix.

  • I want to hear when you get this Kennedy script.

  • I want to hear about the Tom Brady script.

  • We have lots of things to catch up with,

  • and you're one of our favorites.

  • Thanks for coming on the show. I appreciate it, buddy.

  • -Same, man.

  • Thank you so much and thank you for all the laughs

  • over the past several months, man.

  • It's really gotten me through a lot,

  • so I really appreciate it.

-Yeah! -Hey. How you doing, man?
