Matt Bomer, stop being perfect. Really, the female population cannot take more of your perfection. You’re killing us a little bit.
Bomer is breaking into voice acting by playing Superman in Superman: Unbound, an animated motion picture based on the series of comic books of the same title.
Matt Bomer as Superman? Perfect casting. Especially since the actor is a huge fan and has been for a long time ever since he was a little kid in fact.
In a recent interview at WonderCon, he dropped some interesting factoids about the project.
He said that in order to get into his headspace for the role, especially one with a long history as Superman, he had to pick out the what he felt are his strongest traits. Bomer had this to say about playing Superman in the movie: “In this particular story, it’s a very mature Superman that we’re seeing. He’s always dealing with weighty issues, but he’s very paternal towards Supergirl, he’s very protective of Lois and he’s also having to deal with Braniac, who is a very intense adversary. So, I tried to balance the heavier, more mature version of him with a lighter, fun, more charming sense of playfulness with Lois, in our scenes.”
He also says that fans of his on camera work should give the movie a shot.
It was also a learning experience for Bomer since this is his first voice acting role. He puts the experience like this: “…the more challenging part is that all you have to convey character and emotion is your voice. We recorded it first, and then they animated it. And then, we went back and changed lines and fine-tuned things. So, it was interesting to see. You record something ahead of time, and then it ends up that that was actually a close-up, so screaming it wasn’t so great, so we’d have to change it.”
Sounds like Superman: Unbound is going to be pretty awesome! For the full interview check it out here!
