  • -Thank you so much for coming on.

  • -You bet. Thanks for having me. -Did you see Strahan backstage?

  • -I didn't see him. I just missed him.

  • -Yeah, he told me --

  • -He needs to be in so many places right now.

  • They probably just... get him out of here.

  • -He told me that you saw -- you've seen a lot of him.

  • -I have. I've seen --

  • I've seen about all there is to see of Michael.

  • -Yeah, 'cause you were -- was it "Magic Mike XXL"?

  • -"Mike -- XXL." -Yeah.

  • -Yeah, he came in and did a scene in Jada's strip club.

  • And the reaction on all of our faces

  • is the least acting I've ever had to do.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Because we know him from the, you know,

  • the morning shows and sports. -Of course, yeah.

  • -And then, all of a sudden, you see him in a thong...

  • -[ Laughs ] It changes -- -...oiling down a lady,

  • and then... -[ Laughs ]

  • -...doing some special things to her.

  • -Yeah. -And, you know, it's just, bam.

  • Jaw dropped. -Yeah, wow.

  • I saw -- I saw -- we talked about Kobe a little bit with...

  • -Yeah, yeah.

  • -I saw you posted something very nice on Instagram.

  • -Yeah. -I know you lived in L.A.,

  • so it must -- must be tough, man.

  • -Yeah, I mean, obviously, our hearts go out

  • to all the families involved, you know?

  • But when I think about Kobe, we have three sons.

  • And whenever we're playing basketball

  • and they're taking a shot that's particularly challenging

  • or defies the odds,

  • they always go, "Kobe! Kobe!" -Oh, really?

  • -And I think it's such a testament to who he was

  • and what he gave that game

  • that kids all around the world,

  • when they want to channel greatness, they say his name.

  • -Yeah.

  • -And one of our kids last night asked me -- said,

  • "Can I still say 'Kobe' when I do something great?"

  • And I said, "Now more than ever, buddy."

  • -Yeah, absolutely. That's right, yeah.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • How -- How -- How are the kids?

  • How old are they now? -14 and 11.

  • -Are they really? -The twins are 11, yeah.

  • -Wow, 14. -[ Chuckling ] Yeah.

  • -Are they -- Are they playing any sports?

  • -Yes, our oldest plays football.

  • And the twins are playing basketball right now, actually.

  • -They are? -Yeah.

  • -Who's he going for for the Super Bowl?

  • -Oh, my gosh. He's such a huge 49ers fan.

  • -Really? -It's --

  • He knows every player, every statistic.

  • He chose the team, I guess,

  • about -- gosh -- eight years ago.

  • And we've been going to games together

  • almost every year since in San Francisco.

  • And he just --

  • we went to a playoff game against Minnesota this year.

  • -Oh, my gosh. -And, I mean,

  • there were season ticket holders behind him who didn't know,

  • like, who the players were.

  • And he's like, "Oh, that's Raheem Mostert.

  • He has 26 carries for 432 yards."

  • -[ Laughs ] Yeah. -He knows everything.

  • -He's a great kid to sit with, yeah, so he's psyched.

  • -And he's also an LSU fan.

  • So he's just having the best sports fan year

  • he could possibly have. -Oh, my gosh.

  • -I was like, "Buddy, enjoy this,

  • 'cause it does not come around every year."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -No, trust me. Yeah, I live in New York.

  • Yeah. [ Laughter ]

  • You're -- But you have football in the blood?

  • -Yeah. -Your dad -- is it John Bomer?

  • -Yeah, John.

  • -John Bomer got drafted to the Dallas Cowboys in 1971?

  • -Sure. -Is that --

  • Yeah, something like that? [ Laughter ]

  • I -- That's the research I did. But that's amazing.

  • -It is amazing, yeah.

  • -And you played a little bit in -- in high school?

  • -Yeah, I quickly realized that

  • I was not gonna be drafted by the Dallas Cowboys.

  • -What position? What position did you play?

  • -I played receiver and defensive back.

  • And I was actually an okay receiver.

  • I didn't really drop passes.

  • But defensive back -- you know, I mean, I'm 6 feet tall.

  • But it was Texas 5A, "Friday Night Lights" ball.

  • So, you know, I was typically just like

  • diving into people's legs and hoping they would go down.

  • -Yeah, which is not legal.

  • Yeah, no. -No, no.

  • -I don't know if you saw this,

  • but when the Patriots won last year, there was talk --

  • they said, "We should make a movie about this season."

  • And all of a sudden, they said,

  • "Matt Bomer should play Tom Brady."

  • [ Laughter ] And they --

  • they posted this online.

  • Not bad, dude.

  • -Oh. [ Laughter ]

  • -I could -- I could see you doing that.

  • Would you ever do it?

  • -Well, first of all, I wish I looked like Tom Brady.

  • But, secondly, I think there are more --

  • there are more chapters in the biopic of Tom Brady.

  • You know, he still has -- I think,

  • by the time they're ready to make a Tom Brady biopic,

  • I'll be way too long in the tooth for that.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Oh, really? You don't think so?

  • -But I'll give it -- I'll give it a shot, man.

  • Let's do it. Let's get started here.

  • [ Laughter ] -Let's talk about "The Sinner."

  • I'm psyched about this.

  • Do you want to explain the setup to this series?

  • Because it's a --

  • -Yeah, I mean, what I love about this show --

  • it's a "why done it" as opposed to a "whodunit."

  • I play a guy called Jamie Burns,

  • who, on paper, just has everything together.

  • He's got a great job, great wife.

  • They're expecting a child. -Yep.

  • -They've just moved out to the burbs.

  • Everything is going right.

  • But inside, he's really suffering from

  • a profound sense of -- of loneliness

  • and spiritual disconnection,

  • both with the people in his life and with society at large.

  • And out of desperation,

  • he reaches out to this sort of toxic relationship

  • he had from the past

  • and brings his friend back into his life,

  • and that just makes everything spiral out of control.

  • -Do you -- This is the third season of "The Sinner."

  • -Yeah.

  • -But every season's a new kind of story.

  • -Yeah, I actually first learned about the show on this show.

  • 'Cause I was here with Jessica

  • when she was first promoting the show, and I --

  • -Oh, Jessica Biel. -Jessica Biel.

  • And I saw the clip.

  • And I said, "I got to see that." -Yeah.

  • -And I've been a fan ever since,

  • which is one of the strange things about, you know,

  • anthology series now --

  • you can be a fan, and all of a sudden,

  • you're on the set,

  • interacting with the characters that you're a fan of.

  • -That's so cool. That's great.

  • And now she's -- she's producing it.

  • -She's producing it. -She's unbelievable.

  • -She's a great -- She's a great producer.

  • -And you shot in New York, correct?

  • -In New York City.

  • -What's it like shooting in New York?

  • -I mean, I love it, you know,

  • especially as someone who came here and struggled here

  • and didn't know how I was gonna pay my rent here,

  • to be able to -- you know better than I do --

  • to be able to film here and -- and do what you love

  • is a dream come true. -It's the greatest.

  • -There are some climate challenges

  • from time to time. -Yeah, sure, yeah, a little bit.

  • Yeah, it gets a little cold. -As you can imagine.

  • -Sure.

  • -There were some on "The Sinner."

  • But I did a show here with Viola Davis years ago.

  • This is back when we shot on film.

  • I sound like... [ Laughter ]

  • "Back when we shot on film." -"Back when we shot on film."

  • Yeah. -"Before the talkies."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Yeah. Talkies. -But they used to --

  • I had to shoot on the top of the Triborough Bridge

  • at the end of February.

  • And it wasn't supposed to be winter.

  • So I had on a T-shirt and a jean jacket.

  • -Oh, I hate that. Oh, no. -So my face is already frozen.

  • And this is -- they didn't have the same technology on film

  • as they do on digital,

  • so they didn't want your breath to fog up.

  • So they would make you put ice cubes in your mouth...

  • -What?!

  • -...so there wouldn't be a temperature differential

  • to create the fog.

  • That's called science. [ Laughter ]

  • -Wow! -And you're welcome for that.

  • -I've never heard of that. -So they would --

  • they'd put this ice in your mouth

  • and make you just sit there for, like, 30 seconds awkwardly.

  • And they'd be like, "Is it cold enough?"

  • You're like, "Yeah, I think it's cold enough now."

  • [ Laughter ] And then they --

  • and I had to do this scene where I was talking on the phone.

  • It was a very serious, gritty scene.

  • And I had to say

  • "Brooklyn Bridge northwest abutment"...

  • [ Laughter ] ...like a tough guy.

  • -And so, after you have ice in your mouth...

  • -So I was like -- whhhh-whhh-whhh-whhh!

  • [ Garbled ] "Brooklyn Bridge northwest abutment."

  • [ Laughter ] -Have subtitles on that scene.

  • -Needless to say, we rerecorded the entire thing,

  • you know, on a sound stage later.

  • -Yes. -But I love New York.

-Thank you so much for coming on.
